On April 14, 2018, Nashville is marching for science and climate at Centennial Park. We want to give everyone, including those who cannot attend in person, a chance to march in solidarity. Please share your stories. Tell us why science is important to you and/or why climate change concerns you, and your photos. We will publish them here for fellow marchers to enjoy.
I’m virtually marching for science because a recent study found contaminants in 30 Tennessee water systems (Environmental Working Group, 2017), and communities in Kentucky, Michigan, Oklahama, Puerto Rico, West Virginia, and elsewhere don’t have regular access to clean water.
I am on a virtual walk towards a world where we all honor the place in which we live. Its people and creatures, soil, air, water, and atmosphere. With great well we can heal.
Although our march was cancelled, I still march in spirit. Science is the foundation of society and we must continue to evolve. Ignorance is NOT bliss, it is dangerous. Let’s allow the facts to lead us to a better tomorrow!
I am a full supporter of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. I have a degree in psychology, a social science. While the social sciences aren’t quite the most attention getting fields, they do produce results that aid society. From research in autism to educational studies about language acquisition in children to memory in humans, the social sciences have benefited society in many ways that are invisible. Like other fields of science, all of humanity has been gifted with knowledge that helps people in need, improve society, and make life a bit more comfortable.
Those that will place profits over peoples, ideology over the truth, and hate over love have muddied the public discourse and mislead those not trained in modern science. To take America a better place, we need to protect the truth, spread it to others, and help them understand the wonders science has discovered. After all, astronauts are cooler than cowboys.
Support STEM, support America, and support humanity.
I’m an independent voter. Science will remain science, but political and social boundaries are more of a threat to progress. Even with higher than normal voter turnout, we are still far behind many other countries. It’s absolutely crucial that the people with scientific understanding read up on our politicians and show up to vote.
