The main March for Science event was held in Washington, D.C.,where thousands, mainly scientists, engineers, teachers, students Cheap Cleveland Browns Jersey ,parents and children, defied pouring rain to gather at the NationalMall to hear high-profile speakers who declared science underattack and asked politicians to respect facts.
""We are marching today to remind people everywhere our lawmakersespecially of the significance of science for our health andprosperity,"" Bill Nye, a popular U.S. science educator and CEO ofthe Planetary Society who served as honorary co-chair of the event,told the crowd at the rally that lasted about four hours followedby a march to the U.S. Capitol.
""Today, we have a great many lawmakers, not just here but aroundthe world, deliberately ignoring and actively suppressing science Cheap Cincinnati Bengals Jersey ,""Nye asserted. ""Their inclination is misguided and in no one's bestinterest.""

""I'm here because I want to make sure climate change is a majorfocus of policy in the near history of our government,"" EmilyWiggans, a middle-aged woman who came with her family, told Xinhua.""I think we really need to focus on a present danger as a nationalsecurity threat and do more with climate scientists and put morefunding into climate scientists and science.""
Another woman, Ray Whittle, was outraged about President DonaldTrump's proposed budget, which would slash funding for the U.S.medical research funder Cheap Carolina Panthers Jersey , the National Institutes of Health (NIH), afederal agency her son was working for.
""His budget is a disaster. I'm terrified he is going to cut NIHfunding. There is lots of scientific work being done out thereright now,"" Whittle told Xinhua.
In an earlier statement, Trump insisted that his administrationis committed to protecting the environment ""without harmingAmerica's working families.""
""That is why my Administration is reducing unnecessary burdenson American workers and American companies,"" he said. ""Rigorousscience is critical to my administration's efforts to achieve thetwin goals of economic growth and environmental protection...(but)we should remember that rigorous science depends not on ideology,but on a spirit of honest inquiry and robust debate.""
Besides the Washington march, organizers said there are 609""satellite"" marches across the United States and across the worldin a protest timed to coincide with Earth Day.
An estimated number of more than 30,000 people Cheap Buffalo Bills Jersey , mostlyscientists, students and research advocates, filled up at least adozen blocks north of the Trump International Hotel in Manhattan,New York, on Saturday to march for science.

They cited President Trump administration'proposed 5.8 billion U.S. dollars cut to the National Institutes ofHealth, and also its proposed 2.6 billion dollars cut to theEnvironmental Protection Agency.
