April 22nd, 2017

by Daniel Brouse

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The March For Science protest was held in over 500 cities worldwide. The Trump administration has invented many fake news stories and alternative facts including climate change is a hoax, vaccines are dangerous and the best way to protect the environment is through economic growth.

Hundreds of thousands of scientists and science lovers came out on Earthday 2017 to support science and technology. Philadelphia’s march stretched for 14 blocks across the entire street from City Hall to Penn’s Landing.
