Hundreds join March for Science in Orlando’s Lake Eola Park
Hundreds of people in Orlando joined over 600 cities across the world on Earth Day in the March for Science, a movement dedicated to defending science in a time when many feel basic facts are under attack. The thousands of scientists and supporters who gathered on April 22 say President Donald Trump's policies, rollback of environmental regulations and budget cuts would threaten work on important issues, such as climate change. Trump, who once tweeted that climate change was a hoax, said in a statement Saturday, "My administration is committed to advancing scientific research that leads to a better understanding of our environment and of environmental risks. … We should remember that rigorous science depends not on ideology, but on a spirit of honest inquiry and robust debate."
