Tyson, who considers himself agnostic but is often championed by atheists, wrote on Twitter that “the Arctic’s most famous resident” will be a victim of global warming. 
 
“As Earth warms, and Arctic ice melts, Santa will lose his habitat too,” he wrote. “Soon we’ll see photos of him clutched to an ice floe.”
 
 
Tyson riffed on other elements of Christmas in a series of Friday morning tweets.
