April 14 was a busy and beautiful day in Washington, DC. Thousands of people flocked to the capital city to partake in the Cherry Blossom Parade, the Walk for Epilepsy, the Emancipation Day Parade, and—last not but least—the 2018 March for Science. The latter event drew the two of us from near and far: Ashley took the Metro in from Northern Virginia, and Lina flew in from Louisiana just for the occasion. We met up in front of the Washington Monument during the pre-March rally.
Although the turnout this year was smaller than last year, the crowd’s energy and enthusiasm were palpable. Marchers carried signs with slogans such as “Science, Not Silence,” “No Science, No Beer,” “There Is No Planet B,” and—our favorite—”E.O. Wilson for President!” Among the various chants the crowd repeated along the march route was: “What do we want? Science-based policy! When do we want it?

My Take - Two of the writer scientists who allow me to publish their work are Dr. Henry Miller of the Hoover Institute and Dr. Alex Berezow of the American Council on Science and Health. Here is their article puncturing this March for Science balloon as nothing more than politics, and not science. Slogans and marches aren't science either. And anthropogenic global warming is the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the public since the Piltdown man scandal and the DDT ban fraud.
March for Science was just an excuse to attack Trump and Republicans By Henry I. Miller, Alex Berezow @ Fox News
For these people anything that promotes the idea man is overwhelmingly evil and attacking everything that makes modern life possible, including modern agricultural practices is "sound science", irrespective of reality. And anything that stands in the way of that irrational, misanthropic and morally defective march is "junk science". And it all started with the fraud perpetrated by Rachel Carson in her book Silent Spring, which we should never stop attacking as that book brought about the unnecessary deaths of 100 million people and unnecessary of hundreds of millions every year since the ban on DDT.
The real perpetrators of junk science is now and has always been the green movement. That's history and that history is incontestable. And we need to have the courage to say so and the fortitude to be the rock in the current!
