Matthew Nisbet, a communications professor at Northeastern University, says the split with science is most visible and strident when it comes to climate change because the nature of the global problem requires communal joint action, and “for conservatives that’s especially difficult to accept.” He and other experts say climate change is more about tribalism, or who we identify with politically and socially. Liberals believe in global warming, conservatives don’t. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

Science lovers pick Earth Day for their march. Will you attend?


A March for Science will take place in Washington D.C. on Earth Day, April 22.

Like the Women's March on Washington in January, organizers want the March for Science to be a nonpartisan protest with a focus on support for science-based policy and diversity, CNN reported. Scientists supporting the march are worried about the Trump administration's stance on climate change, and other science policies.

Scientists planned their own march after a user posted on reddit that "There needs to be a scientists' march on Washington." 

"Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a crucial and urgent matter," the March for Science website reads, "It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted."

The March for Science isn't just going to be in Washington. Marches are being planned all over the country and internationally.  Even Switzerland.
