Science Not Silence; Marching for Science
Although I couldn't make it to a march, my heart was with the scientist who marched for a better, fact based future and policy making. In case you're not aware, Scientists all around the world Marched on the 22nd of April to emphasise the importance of science and the scientific research in policy making.
The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.

It's no secret by now that certain political parties and leaders around the world have been ignoring and denying a great danger that is called; Climate Change or you may as well call it Global Warming. In 5-10 years we will be at a place where it is impossible to reverse the effect of the climate change, sea levels'll rise, ice caps will melt and habitats will be lost, perhaps species will erased from the face of earth. All, just for the comfort of the species called Homo Sapiens.
It is time to realise that we need to change the way we live, let the science lead the way to a brighter future. That's what the Scientist marched for. They marched for to be seen, to be heard, to prevent their research from being silenced. As a scientist in training, I can understand this. You know the facts, you know what's happening and someone is trying to prevent you from communicating your findings with the rest of the world. That doesn't make any sense, does it ?
Science Belongs To Everyone
I am not a news article writer, but this is something I care about, so I wanted to let everyone know about this march who happens to be following my blog; That is why I'm linking sources who are explaining this march much more better than me
