“Why people (and scientists, themselves) are marching for science (this weekend): There is no Planet B.” – Washington Post
Uh, yeah. We might want to get that into our collective heads, yes? Nature does not care about our ignorance any more than our brillance, and no “God” is going to save us from our own self-made destruction. Nature will ultimately decide our fate as a primate species upon this planet. But, it would be nice to know that the next few generations actually have chance at life, and a decent one at that, wouldn’t it? For the children, then!

March for Science Demonstrations Held Worldwide on Earth Day
Crowds massed in the US capital and around the world Saturday to support science and evidence-based research — a protest partly fueled by opposition to President Donald Trump’s threats of budget cuts to agencies funding scientists’ work.
At the main March for Science, demonstrators gathered at Washington’s National Mall to hear speakers laud science as the force moving humanity forward, and rail against policymakers they say are ignoring fact and research in areas including climate change.
