Scientists' March on Washington

By: auburn , 4:34 AM GMT on January 25, 2017

It is time for scientists to come together and make ourselves heard! This is a Group for the Discussion and Organization of a March on Washington by scientists and science enthusiasts in protest of the policies of the United States Congress and our President .Although this will start with a march, we hope to use this as a starting point to take a stand for science in politics. Slashing funding and restricting scientists from communicating their findings (from tax-funded research!) with the public is absurd and cannot be allowed to stand as policy. This is a non-partisan issue that reaches far beyond people in the STEM fields and should concern anyone who believes in empirical research and science.

Quoting 4. sandiquiz:

I am glad I live in the UK, too!

UK Science and research budget
allocations for financial years
2016/17 to 2019/20


"Science and research are vital to our country%u2019s prosperity, security and wellbeing. At a time
of tight control over public spending, the Government continues to protect investment and
support our world-class research base.
Government is protecting science resource funding at its current level of £4.7 billion, which
will rise in cash terms every year, for the rest of the Parliament. At the same time, we are
investing in new scientific infrastructure on a record scale - delivering on the £6.9 billion
science capital commitment in our manifesto. The total investment of £26.3 billion, between
2016/17 to 2020/21, builds on the protections for the science budget begun in the last Parliament."


Wow! ~ I knew there was a good reason why I'm an anglophile! Wish our government would address this and many other important needs of our Nation and citizens as well!

Good morning Auburn.
It's cold here again this morning. I'd like to get a day with 80 degree temps. I'll have to wait until July for that. Have a good day.
