American Scientists Preparing Earth Day Protest of Donald Trump's Attitude Towards Climate Change

It's not every day that scientists plan to head out of the laboratory and into the streets to protest, but on Earth Day, April 22, U.S. scientists have good reason to do exactly that.

The protesters believe President Trump has no respect for the truth when it comes to well-settled science on some of the most critical questions facing the country. The scientists who plan to participate in the march fear Trump will suppress politically inconvenient research at federal agencies.

They know that within hours of his inauguration, Trump's team began scrubbing federal websites of information about climate change. One of the many incendiary claims that Trump has offered without evidence is that climate change is a hoax perpetuated by the Chinese. In fact, 97 percent of climate scientists agree that human activity is making the planet warmer and driving disruptive climate changes.


People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.
