Thousands of Scientists to Join Anti-Trump March for Science Protest

Thousands of Scientists to Join Anti-Trump March for Science Protest”

It's the Republican party, they argue, that has made science political by joining with industry front groups to spread doubt and denial, and it's Donald Trump's censorship of government employees, his climate denial, and his proposed cuts to science programs at places like NASA which prompted the march.

The March for Science begins with a rally on the north side of the Washington Monument, South of Constitution Avenue NW, between 15th and 17th Streets NW.

"As teachers, we must stand with our colleagues to support the fundamental value of science in our society and help people to understand and appreciate scientific knowledge, the importance of fact-based evidence that is exemplified by science, and the need for all children to have a quality science education", NSTA said in a statement. "Without sound science, we can't protect our climate, our wildlife or our health - Trump's censorship and alternative facts put us all at risk". We know the vital role scientific research plays not only in our economy but our very lives.

While this focus is more recent, scientists have been studying the Earth's changing climate for a long, long time. A March for Science will be taking place in Washington DC on 22 April, with solidarity marches in more than 500 other locations around the world.

Hijazi's release comes after the Trump administration has been working to improve USA relations with Egypt. Aya Hijazi grew up in Falls Church, Virgina, and is a graduate of George Mason University.

The March for Science coincides with Earth Day.

Before the march begins, the organizers have arranged "teach-ins" starting at 9am, and guest speakers at a rally from 10am onward. Writing recently in an opinion article for the Bay Area News Group, Monterey Bay Aquarium Executive Director Julie Packard noted that for the aquarium "science is in our DNA".

A bunch of "intelligent" people can tell me trees don't make wind, but I can create a website called TreesMakeWind.com and form a religion based exclusively on the mystical truth of tree-generated breezes. Bonoan will be giving a lecture on honey bees at a museum in MA during the march, but will be wearing a March for Science t-shirt in solidarity. But the march's biggest impact could be on the participants themselves, Monger said. "Scientists coming together to fight for all of the progress we have made, and will make, is absolutely worth a couple of hours of your time".

The attack on science comes not only in the form of draconian budget cuts, but also in ways that politicize science and intimidate some who undertake it. "Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network is the world's largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 50,000 partners in almost 195 countries to build environmental democracy".

I save her life, and then we rush to Han, and then we are in the same position that Rey and Finn and Chewie are-too late to save him, but witnesses.

As the momentum for the march grew over the last few months, large mainstream academic and research organizations like AAAS have joined more traditionally activist groups to make the event a success. When politicians cater to fossil fuel interests by denying the basic realities of climate science and pursuing anti-science climate policy, they endanger the jobs, justice, and livelihoods of ordinary people everywhere.

In addition, there will be satellite marches across the world, from Quezon City in the Philippines to Blantyre, Malawi, according to the Vox online newsletter.

"The damage to the environment is becoming critical and we need science to alert us to the dangers and come up with remedial actions", Irv Handler told CTVNews.ca in Facebook message. "We want science talked about in a factual way". "The evidence for what works in the classroom comes from social and behavioral science research; the evidence for how to prepare for the inevitable quake comes from Earth science and engineering studies". In a letter published in the Journal of Science Communication recently, I noted that, while senior scientists with secure jobs may be willing to engage in some degree of activism, it may be more hard for early career scientists.

As president, Mr. Trump has stacked his Cabinet with individuals who have either actively worked to undermine the agencies they now lead or have demonstrated a willingness to wipe out federal funding for science entirely. It's meant to both encourage political leaders to fund science and rely on scientific evidence when making policy decisions.
