March for Science

Love the posts, pictures, and news of the worldwide event last Saturday. (I made it to our local capital for my states version of the march. 08-march-for-science-0422-parisInspirational.) #MarchforScience became an idea soon after Trump became president, and asked for lists of EPA scientists working on climate change. This was the same time he was appointing ex-CEO of Exxon Mobile, Rex Tillerson, to be his Secretary of State, and appointing to head the EPA, an ex-attorney general who sued the EPA for his home state of Oklahoma 14 times. (Scott Pruitt) Scientists were being told there would be no press releases on climate change, and scientists were creating rogue Twitter accounts, while dumping data to servers outside the U.S. governments reach.

I’ve been assigned to write an article on the environment under Trump. It should be interesting. More on that later.
