Just a quick question:
Didn't I read, in another thread, that presidents have been doing this, since at least Bush?

I'm not recalling any marches in the past. Maybe it's just my old age?

I'm watching for dates. If need be, I'll reschedule classes I'm teaching in order to get there.

I may go to one too. Suppressing science for political reasons is VERY dangerous ground. The Catholic religion is STILL demonized for having done it during the Middle Ages to this day.

I'd try to show up with this one.

My 3 important issues.

1. Equal Rights/Equal Treatment.

2. Separation of church and state.

3. Science advancement.


You'd be welcome. The unofficial policy statement is that it's open to anyone with an interest in science. I do hope the "uniform" is lab coats. Not all of us need them (information science, physics, etc, etc) but I bet a lot of us will show up in them.

(g) We can have an informal ATS meetup there.

I do hope it has a good response.

(grin) the REAL problem is going to be coming up with a catchy protest chant!

Political ideology was promoted through the veneer of science.

"Science is settled."
"Science is absolute."


Guess you never read the comment section in Nature or Science.

Lots of talk about things you know nothing about, sounds about right from a Republican.

This will have to be on a weekend or holiday because scientists actually WORK for a living.

Not to this scale. Gag order on mentioning the words "Climate change" (and by one state (Florida)) and one administration (Bush) - but wholesale departments is something unusual.

Many of the past administrations have been pro-science. Even the Bush administrations that cut funding to science were not this draconian.

Let's think of some good protest chants.

After witnessing some very eye catching protest cards last week in DC, we have to come up with some good ones.

I actually remember seeing these:
"You can't grab my p***y with those tiny hands"
"P***y Galore"

I know we can come up with slogans just as impactful as those listed above.

Scientists are turning out to be as ideologically driven as your garden variety fundamentalist. Just go do your science.

Once again, liberals are trying to lay claim to an entire group, this time a profession.
So just to be clear, liberal scientists and those that pray at the church of climate change will be marching for political reasons.
They must be upset with their funding for worthless projects disappearing.
Take the pocket money away and the children cry.

What you deem to be "important topics" falls to a question of subjective perception, an opinion. I might believe in my opinion that the topics are frivolous, unsubstantiated, fraudulent, etc. It's all just opinions.

Oh good! I've been trying to come up with a catchy slogan, but "H(x)=E[I(X)]=E(ln[P(X)]) - Shannon, 1948" isn't that easy to chant.

It's appropriate, mind you, and there's even more that could be added that makes a rather pointed statement about the flow of information under the interdictions... but nobody outside a handful of us would actually understand it.

What about something referring to people now having to learn about climate change and weather from a groundhog?
