Crowds turn out around the world for March for Science

Crowds turn out around the world for March for Science

Locals marched and protested in Downtown early Saturday as a way to defend science. Making sure that the education system does not impart ideas that contradict scientific evidence and to enact policies based on scientific evidence was also a part of their demands.

The foremost issue for her was how the United States and the world are being impacted by climate change, and she wanted to see more action taken to fight it.

"It's time for people to be aware of what's going on", said an attendee.

" Additionally, there is a systematic attack on science and scientific attitudes including by influential leaders of the ruling dispensation in the form of questioning the theory of evolution, and positing bogus theories, fake history, unscientific claims of knowledge in ancient India, and advancing myths as historical fact", it added.

Mary Ellen Cosenza, 58, attended the march in New York's Washington Square Park on Saturday.


"There's no room for climate deniers", she said. "This way everyone can engage better in policy decisions".

Dave Harrington, the Lehigh Valley For All president, said the group hosted the rally because there hasn't been a change in the administration's stance on the environment and science since the last rally.

"The challenges are real for underrepresented students in science", said Corey Welch, director of the STEM scholars program at Iowa State University. In the crowd as well as onstage, the message was mostly, "Listen to the scientists".

This was the second March for Science, which debuted past year as part of more than 600 coordinated events across the planet.

Scientists' criticism of the President grew weeks later when he decided the United States would pull out of the Paris climate accord.
