Advocates fan out in global show of support for science

The organisers of Earth Day have framed the march as a "celebration" of science to counter a growing disregard for evidence-based knowledge.

The roster included crowd favorites like Bill Nye "The Science Guy". Participants had the chance to test their heart rate before and after the march as well as check the pH levels of water samples.

Dr. Jacob Trevnio, Nano-Science researcher at the City University of NY, was among the marchers. "I think it's also about making sure that the people who practice science look like the world that they're practicing on". "We all live with science whether we study it or not", she said.

"Too often scientists isolate themselves in their work and don't reach out as much as they can to public discourse and to help educate people", Miller said. "Science is for everyone and should be supported by everyone in our government". She said it's not only the politicians but also the media that is to blame for the lack of respect for scientific reason. "I'm hoping people start to understand that".

"The great lakes not only on our borders but all the great lakes, I think is probably some of the most valuable resources that we have in the world", said attendee Dr. Jamie Lindstrom.

The March for Science-Omaha was set to follow an afternoon of activities.

Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 1.09-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq , a 1.22-to-1 ratio favored decliners. Honeywell International Inc. boasted quarterly profit that exceeded analysts' estimates and boosted its full-year guidance.

"I'm here because I'm so upset because science seems under attack, facts seem under attack", Sanborn said.

We saw this in the Soviet Union's communist science that starved millions, and in Nazi Germany's National Socialist science, which endorsed "border sciences" such as astrology. "So we came out today to support science". He argued that the framers of the Constitution would be more receptive to the findings of the scientific community.

Scientists involved in the march said they were anxious about political and public rejection of established science such as climate change and the safety of vaccine immunisations. In March, he said he does not believe carbon dioxide is a primary factor in global warming, a view which is at odds with nearly all climate scientists.

Signs he made with his seventh graders during a recess and lunch break read, "Science Not Silence" and "Science Provides Inspiration and Innovation". Advances in everything from biomedical studies to technological devices could be affected.

Organizers in more than 500 cities, are largely protesting President Trump's proposed cuts at the Environmental Protection Agency and his administration's soft views on climate change. However, what was unique this time was who was attending and the cause that brought them there.

"Funding for a clean environment, research and funding for the National Institute of Health, is a real important part of our evolution to become a better society", said Miller "Scientists care and we are citizens in both parties: republicans and democrats, liberals and conservatives".
