Please March for Science on Earth Day

My next blog post will be about my visit to Manhattan again, focusing on (at least the latter half of) the March for Science NYC. If you would like to join me there or support my trip into the city please let me know and we can figure something out (I will be late – ironically because of prior scientific duties). If you can’t make it to NYC, the primary march is actually in Washington, D.C., and there are tons of (~500) satellite marches all over the country and the world. Science Magazine (to which I am a 6 year subscriber and member – everyone is welcome to join the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and subscribe), published by the AAAS has an interactive world map showing all of the places that are hosting official marches. The march is sponsored by almost all of the major scientific organizations and professional societies, including the AAAS, the American Physical Society (APS), and the American Astronomical Society (AAS) (all of which I have supported and have been a member of for several years at least), so don’t feel shy about joining – you are in good company. Even if you cannot make it to a march, please stand up for science and make your voice heard, as our political system grows – more – and – more – antagonistic to the basic principles that have actually made our country great for so long.
