Rumor has it that instead of vagina hats, they’ll wear test tube hats.
Sure, this is how science works! Instead of the free exchange of ideas and reliance on inductive reasoning to develop hypotheses, scientists spend their time ferreting out immutable “facts” and, once having done so, close off all future discussion. Empiricism? Who needs it.
According to the March for Science website, the impetus for the demonstration (apart from the success of the “March for Women”) is the “mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue” and, one assumes, efforts to set the public straight. And who, according to a CBC interview with march founder Valorie Aquino is the chief political villain in this drama? Why, Donald Trump, of course. Apparently, Aquino — who is working toward a PhD in anthropology — slept through Barack Obama’s repeated insistences that the “debate is over” and “the science is settled.”

At one point in the interview, Aquino bemoans the” fact that climate data” has been “scrubbed from the internet,” by which she is referring to data that support the convictions of the global warmists. But cases of climate “experts” suppressing data that fail to comport with their view that the sky is falling are also well-documented.
