This Saturday, April 22nd, protests continue as scientists (and science enthusiasts like myself) from all sorts of backgrounds, professions, and walks of life, come together to March for Science. This march starts at the National Mall of Washington D.C. and is, appropriately, taking place on Earth day. 🌳
While this march is made up of regular people embarking on a journey to spread awareness of science’s accomplishments, it’s also important in terms of our current political office. It is the reason why it’s happening! The Trump administration is challenging & ignoring that environmental policy is critical. Their upcoming federal budget cuts completely debilitate the EPA and their potential as our environmental protectors. These same people (the Dump admin.) are completely ignoring scientific evidence for the sole purpose of creating short term profit.
Avoiding to take care of our environment is also avoiding the earth that nourishes us as people, nourishes our plant-based foods, and animal counterparts. Marching for Science supports the scientific community and all of their findings. It shows this political office that we’re aware of the bullshit profit for short-term benefits! (For example: Dakota Access Pipeline) Empower & teach our youth to think for themselves… this world is ours to save from monsters driven by money.
