Images from the March for Science in Vancouver

[I haven't seen attendance counts, but it seemed like there was an awful lot of people there! Such things never seem to get the coverage they deserve. (Gosh, you would almost begin to think that the mainstream media WAS the 1%.) I have a short YouTube video of the event here. *RON*]

Scientists aren't known for taking to the streets for noisy protests.

But today, hundreds came out of their labs on Earth Day for the March for Science in Vancouver.

Similar marches were held in cities around the world in response to the antiscientific utterances by U.S. president Donald Trump, not to mention his massive budget cuts to the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Trump has claimed that global warming is hoax invented by the Chinese.

He's also linked autism to vaccinations.

Below, you can see some images of today's event in Vancouver, courtesy of the Twittersphere.
