Wikipedia: March of Science
The March for Science (formerly known as the Scientists’ March on Washington) is an international series of rallies and marches held on Earth Day. The inaugural march was held on April 22, 2017 in Washington, D.C., and more than 600 other cities across the world. According to organizers, the march is a non-partisan movement to celebrate science and the role it plays in everyday lives. The goals of the marches and rallies were to emphasize that science upholds the common good and to call for evidence-based policy in the public’s best interest.

t the start of every disaster movie there is a scientist being ignored. Whether it’s Jeff Goldblum in the original Jurrassic Park flick, Dennis Quaid in The Day After Tomorrow or Anne Heche in Volcano, the cinematic take-home is that once we stop listening to our scientific voices of reason, we’re doomed unless a red-blooded hero turns up to save us all with good ol’ American grit (usually it’s Bruce Willis).

Because every disaster movie starts with someone ignoring a scientist. Not good with that trope? Cool. Which is more important, humanity or monetary systems?
