Creationists have been going after Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson ever since the first episode premiered in March.
However, this upcoming Sunday, the groundbreaking Fox and National Geographic Channel series will present what may be the ultimate takedown of climate-change deniers.
Using the analogy of walking a dog on the beach, Tyson carefully explains the difference between climate and weather in the preview clip above.
The episode will tackle some of the major arguments recently put forward by creationists against climate change and global warming.
It will also feature the impact of climate change on the Arctic ice, which, according to new reports, poses "severe risks" to U.S. national security.
National Geographic previews the upcoming episode:
“Our journey begins with a trip to another world and time, an idyllic beach during the last perfect day on the planet Venus, right before a runaway greenhouse effect wreaks havoc on the planet, boiling the oceans and turning the skies a sickening yellow.
“We then trace the surprisingly lengthy history of our awareness of global warming and alternative energy sources, taking the Ship of the Imagination to intervene at some critical points in time.”
Cosmos has been able to get the attention of more than 3 million viewers every Sunday night. This in itself is a huge achievement for a science show – a genre that Game of Thrones-watching prime time viewers haven’t really been into in the past.
