Here are 25 of the most memorable images from the March For Science all across the US.

The earth is dying. We are racing toward the melting of the polar ice caps, which will leave major cities along coastlines around the world underwater, among a litany of other problems.

One of our biggest enemies in the fight toward preventing these terrible things from happening is the culture of “alternative facts” that is being fostered by the current administration and malignant falsehoods perpetuated by the same people who are dismantling our first line of defense, the Environmental Protection Agency.

This Earth Day, thousands of folks descended upon the National Mall and in the streets across the United States to protest against the current administration’s climate change denial and generally hostile stance against science.

The March For Science is begging folks to use common sense. They are advocating the use of evidence-based decision within government and the scientific method. It also protests the billions of dollars cut in scientific research.

The capital city protest included a series of teach-ins (like how to talk to climate deniers), a woman-dominant roster of speakers (like Mona Hanna-Attisha who blew the whistle on the Flint Water Crisis, Christiana Figueres who was a key mind behind the Paris Climate Agreement), and the actual mile-long march down Constitution Avenue toward the Capitol.

19. “The good thing about science is that it is true whether or not you believe it.”

i stand for what i stand on, and who i stand with. grateful for this global community of fellow science lovers and advocates for progress. as a STEM grad, i have experienced firsthand the humanizing and humbling impact of a science education. it's time for policymakers to recognize humanity – and all living things – so as to create thoughtful, evidence-based decisions, and disavow fact-bending to suit personal ideology. in the words of carl sagan: β€œi don’t want to believe. i want to KNOW.” 🌏🌍🌱🌎 special shoutout to @neil.tyson @billnye @michelleobama @ellenstofan @roguenasaofficial @altnatparkser for socially amplifying the movement! πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ€πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ« #marchforscience #marchforscienceLA
