Science fans were fortunate enough that it was warmer than average for Saturday’s March for Science in Washington, D.C. It’ll be unlikely to find someone marching who would contest the effects of climate change caused the unconventional warmer weather.
This is the March for Science’s second year. The goals of the march are to push for science to be more accepted in public policies and to break down barriers between scientists and communities. More than 600 marches across the globe took place last year with more than 1 million showing their support for science.
