Local organizers say they also want to march out of the lab and into the streets to celebrate their passion for science and call for supporting and safeguarding the scientific community.
The march is meant "to show that people support science and that they recognize the value of science in their lives", said Rich Ribb, an organizer for the march in Rhode Island. The scientific process functions on the accepted idea of an open exchange for data and information between not only scientists, but with the community as well because everyone, either passive or active, is a part of science.
A campus-wide email sent April 13 by Provost Richard Locke and Vice President for Research David Savitz echoed these sentiments.
However, many scientists, like Brown, also believe that the current administration's policies may have a detrimental effect on science in general in addition to ignoring science when making policies.
Earning a science degree does not make you a climate scientist. Important groups have endorsed the march, such as the American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS), the Earth Day Network or the dialogue platform Science Debate.
This year, Earth Day will not be celebrated with a typical tree planting or with a platitude from a politician to recycle more. Scientists have expressed their doubts about the true aims of the march, in addition to its possible negative outcomes.
"We are in an era in which the way that people structure their beliefs around science is of concern", Lynn said. I can assure you that this has little to no impact on their science or for the potential public impact of their findings. We've seen it in Canada, with a decade of cuts to research funding and scientific programs, muzzling of government scientists and rejection of evidence regarding issues such as climate change.
"For me, it's a matter of remembering the larger picture", he said.
Wolff sees Mercedes and Ferrari 'equal'
Vettels 44th career win puts him in command, heading into the Russian GP in Sochi in two weeks time. "We made the call twice". The safety auto came out, after which the two Mercedes drivers pitted for fresh tires. "With Lewis we never saw it actually".
The Globe authors say an "erosion of the public trust in science" brought about by industry lobbyists has resulted in "a widening rift between critical thinking and alternative facts". I am old enough to have witnessed significant environmental degradation in places like the Florida Keys and Mexico's Gulf of California, where I've taken students on field excursions over a teaching career spanning three and a half decades. "We're seeing science becoming politicized across the board".
Josh Hobson, the lead organizer for the March for Science in Park City, said in an interview he moved to Utah for its natural beauty and is anxious about its future.
Lastly, the faculty has complained that the second travel ban implemented by the Trump administration, which banned travel of citizens from six Muslim-majority countries, is extremely detrimental to the status of science in the United States. The event, scheduled for Washington D.C. and some 500 other participating locales, is a celebration of science.
It's raising questions about whether scientists should get involved in what could be perceived as a political event.
Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, a marine biologist who has served as one of the march's leading organizers, added: "Science has never been independent from politics".
Both Khalek and Gosztola also posted a separate discussion on free speech on university and college campuses and Trump's expansion of war in Somalia, which can be found here.
UC Merced Professor Valerie Leppert, whose research includes air pollution, said a previous commitment will have her in Phoenix, where she will march.
