The Bowling Green March for Science on April 22 is one of many satellite events being held across the country in support of the national march in Washington, D.C.
The national March for Science was sparked by Trump administration cuts to federal science agencies and the appointment of some national leaders who don’t accept scientific evidence for issues like climate change.
Bruce Kessler is head of the math department at Western Kentucky University. He says he will participate in the Bowling Green march to stand up for the value of science without regard to political affiliation.
“I think it’s a good opportunity for folks who care about science and care about mathematics, we’re scientists too, to show the world we’re not bad folks, we’re not folks who have an agenda really, other than figuring the world out."
