Student and Teacher Scientists to March for Science in DC

Montez Delgado | 22 Abril, 2017, 17:09

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. Most importantly, they're subjected to the unsafe environmental impacts of putting profits over sustainability. "The passion that scientists of all kinds harbor for their work and for the people they are helping is so incredibly real", she said.

"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".

Washington appeared to go up 5-2 with just under 12 minutes to go, but the goal by Schmidt was waved off on goalie interference. Meanwhile down the wall, linemate Leo Komarov was exchanging love taps with his stick with fellow Russian Alex Ovechkin .

"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 US capital rally begins Saturday at 8:00 am (1200 GMT), and will be capped with a march from the National Mall to the Capitol at 2:00 pm.

Science has periodically found itself in the cross-hairs of contrary opinion at least since Copernicus declared the Sun, not the Earth, to be at the center of the known universe.

That scenario, not hypothetical future climate states, is what should most concern Earth Day organizers. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet.

It is the cornerstone of our understanding of the world. We rely on scientists to tell us the truth.

Lydia Villa-Komaroff, an honorary national co-chair of the March for Science, a molecular and cellular biologist and co-founding member of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science, explained at the press conference the importance of advocating for evidence-based science decisions.

He received applause when he made the Spicer comments, but was booed and jeered when he tried to explain what Spicer was trying to say.

The theme of this year's event is environmental and climate literacy.

"Keep in mind that science 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.

Scientists and academics in CT and across the country will head out of the labs and into the streets on Saturday - Earth Day - to confront what one organizer described as a lack of respect for science among some members of Congress and President Donald Trump.
