Science Matters...

Science matters, as does evidence, truth and reality, all under assault at 140 characters at a time and alternative facts (lies). I plan to participate, and I hope you will as well. The 22nd of April is a Saturday. Unless you're working a compressed schedule, most of us should be free to beat the pavement for civil liberties, and civilization.

AAAS, the world’s largest general scientific organization, announced Thursday (23 February) that it will partner with the March for Science, a nonpartisan set of activities that aim to promote science education and the use of scientific evidence to inform policy.

The March for Science has released a list of more than 25 initial partner organizations, including AAAS, and suggestions for science engagement activities at hundreds of locations throughout the United States and around the world to coincide with the previously announced March for Science rally in Washington, D.C., scheduled for 22 April. The activities may include “teach-ins,” science events, open houses and rallies.

AAAS CEO Rush Holt said, “AAAS will encourage and support its members and affiliate organizations to help make the March for Science a success. We see the activities collectively known as the March as a unique opportunity to communicate the importance, value and beauty of science. Participation in the March for Science is in keeping with AAAS’ long-standing mission to ‘advance science, engineering and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people.’”
