March for Science!
Saturday April 22


Why I March:  I am choosing to attend the March for Science (on Earth Day!) to bring attention to the War on Science by the White House  and so many others in America today.  The future of mankind, and the future of this planet will be determined by the policies and decisions we make in the coming years, and these decisions need to be grounded in peer-reviewed research.  Decisions made for short-term economic gain by a few will be our undoing.  By attending the March for Science I hope to bring the need for funding of basic research and the opportunities available to the forefront for the young people I work with every day.

A nice opinion piece from the Washington Post about the March for Science - with some great info on the 2013-14 Ebola outbreak:
