2017 Recap Earth Day Rallies & Protests-March 4 Science

Earth Day observance and the March 4 Science were so far above the predictable, hum drum festivities and protests that mark this very important day each year, we though it very important to leave a blog record of the events of the day. It seems being a a part of an era that openly diminishes human rights, education, science, and the environment, has finally knocked many more people out of their self oriented, dumbed- down, consumerist sleep walk. Below are some of the best stories, signs, videos, and links from the day. May each Earth Day after this bring forward even more perspective, self evaluation, opportunities for learning, and a greater appreciation for education, science, our planet, and the flora and fauna that inhabit this diverse, complex, interdependent biosphere floating through space.

SCIENCE, NOT SILENCE-Saturday, April 22nd March for Science- Portsmouth NH


The March for Science is an international movement, led by organizers distributed around the globe. This movement is taking place because of the simultaneous realization by thousands of people who value science in their lives that staying silent is no longer an option. There are marches being planned across the United States and internationally - here in Portsmouth, we will rally to support the March for Science at our statehouse in Concord and the marchers across the globe.

The March for Science demonstrates our passion for science and sounds a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists. The incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by the support of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
