Thousands of scientists and supporters of science-based policy descended upon the U.S. Capitol Saturday for the D.C. March for Science in Washington, D.C., with more than a hundred marchers from Charlottesville alone. While motivations of individual marchers varied, most were spurred to action by recent cuts to federal National Institute of Health and National Science Foundation funding, the current administration’s dismissal of environmental issues and what many consider a lack of fact-based policy and executive decisions.”
