On that day, 20 million people across the country came together.
But Michèle Lamont, a Harvard University professor and the president of the American Sociological Association, said the only opposition she's personally heard is from scientists who want the event to be more political. That number grows with each passing year.
Marching has been the latest trend of 2017 and as Earth Day approaches, scientists are gearing up to take their stance to the streets.
Demonstrators in New Zealand and Australia kicked off the day of protest.
Not that it wasn't obvious in 1970. These dramatic cuts could negatively affect human and environmental health as well as ongoing scientific research.

"The Science March is about respecting science, the Peoples Climate March is about acting on it", added Ploy Achakulwisut, a PhD candidate in atmospheric science at Harvard University, in a statement included in a recent release from environmental advocacy group 350.org reaffirming that the two events are "inherently connected".
"The March for Science calls for science-based policymaking, and the Peoples Climate March puts this value into practice by opposing Trump's reckless anti-climate agenda, defending the integrity of climate science and democracy, and standing up for justice", Achakulwisut said.

The theme of this year's event is environmental and climate literacy.
"Keep in mind thatscience is pretty worldwide so we hear about the perspectives of overseas colleagues pretty quickly". EarthJustice is the nation's oldest and largest non-profit environmental law organization, and has been involved with virtually every major environmental win in courts around the country. Earth Day Network's goal is to support the inevitable move to the post-fossil fuel world economy by educating and preparing the next generation of students to be ready for tomorrow's jobs. Based on a theory about climate, we are letting people die today so as to possibly help those yet to be born.
After all, the world hasn't seen a month with below average temperatures since December 1964.
Science serves all of us. And not just scientists.
Other critics say the march takes a staunch liberal stance toward science issues, despite the movement claiming to be nonpartisan.
