Party for Progress and Fight For Science with Afrobeta This Saturday

So it is not surprising that we are the lead organizer of the national march in Washington, D.C.

One may wonder why something as broad as science would merit a march.

When she heard about a national March for Science in Washington, D.C., slated for April 22, Earth Day, she made a decision to organize a similar march on a local scale for Ojai and Ventura County, although she doesn't want it to be political.

Rush Holt, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, said those efforts by first-time organizers grew out of the Women's March, where many participants brought messages in support of science to an event with an ostensibly separate objective. I am assuming that readers of The Advocate are familiar with our president and other politicians stating that climate change is not proven while over 90 percent of weather scientists accept it as fact.

A campus-wide email sent April 13 by Provost Richard Locke and Vice President for Research David Savitz echoed these sentiments. "This is a new and energized constituency - they just happen to be wearing lab coats".

Organizers are expecting a hectic day in Yosemite between the march and Earth Day. Thousands of people are expected to attend in numerous participating cities, marching to show their solidarity and respect for science, according to the event's organizers. The reason that the University is supporting the March for Science is because science itself is being threatened by the current administration, and the faculty endorsing this march is aware of this.

Partners of the march now include hundreds of universities and scientific societies.

Oil edges down after expected climb in US output
Output from the Permian play, the country's largest shale region, was expected to reach a record 2.36 million bpd. On Thursday, before major markets closed for a holiday break, they settled up 3 cents at $55.89 a barrel.

When asked about criticism that the march might be too political or partisan, Johnson cited cases from Galileo to the Flint water crisis to show that science and politics have had a long and at times antagonistic relationship.

"We all populate the same planet and share the risks of devaluing science", the researcher said. "I don't think that is what our representatives should be doing".

The authors are members of for the March for Science RI Organizing Committee. I can assure you that this has little to no impact on their science or for the potential public impact of their findings.

The march is drawing more than just scientists.

Higgins said sometimes people see scientific theories as unwieldy or impenetrable, and it can be hard for people to relate to scientists themselves, "because it seems like science and scientists are in this ivory tower and hard to talk to". "That's not surprising or a bad thing, but it's worrisome when people deny science and deny facts, especially if it's because the science is inconsistent with their political objectives". It also coincides with the Edinburgh Science Festival happening across the city during the whole of April. That they see this is something the people believe strongly enough that they're going to spend a good part of their Saturday out together, marching in support of it. "It is time for people who support science to take a public stand and be counted".

The Trump administration's attitude towards science and technology has bred great resentment among the Washington, D.C. -based Earth Day Network and their employees.

Holt, who is a physicist and also formerly represented New Jersey's 12 district as a Democrat for eight terms in Congress, said the March for Science was birthed when various scientists participating in the January 21 Women's March, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump, began to break out into conversations about the future of science. As a form of "local activism" to combat notions of science being elitist, he is also developing a fall 2017 course, PHYS 0150: "The Jazz of Modern Physics", which is designed for students outside of the physics concentration and aims to make physics more approachable.
