Penguin takes part in March for Science

In Chennai, the 7 a.m.to 9 a.m. march was organised by the Tamil Nadu chapter of the Breakthrough Science Society.

"Too often nowadays, decisions are based on ideology or special interests rather than empirical evidence", said attendee Randolph Bower, an air-pollution scientist at a Research Triangle Park firm.

Hundreds of educators, scientists and residents gathered Saturday in downtown Los Angeles for L.A. Alliance for Science's March for Science Rally and Expo.

"Help us scientists understand better whats going on with the environment", he said. If you want more like this, head over to Science As Fact. This was the second year the event, hosted locally by the group Lehigh Valley For All, took place.

"We can not make decisions unless we know the truth and we know the facts".

This Saturday, science advocates took to the streets to let the world know that science is real, it deserves public funding, and it should be included in public policy making.

Scientists also pointed out that educational and scientific institution have also come under attack not only in funding but also as regards academic freedom, autonomy and democratic functioning, even while school textbooks are being rewritten with false history, a communally jaundiced view and irrational ideas.

In his message, Mr. Anandakrishnan said that he was disappointed by recent trends in education and science in India. "Whether it's gun control or climate change, the government is limiting research because they're afraid of the answers".

"For every Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison there are dozens of Albert Einsteins and Elon Musks and Wernher von Brauns", he said.
