SkS Team - Marching for Science around the globe

Posted on 1 May 2017 by BaerbelW

Many articles have already been written about the recent March for Science - Dana's Guardian post "March against madness" being a case in point. So, this one will not have a lot of words and will let the collages put together from the marches where members from our Skeptical Science team participated in speak for themselves. Where available, you'll also find links to the respective march's homepage. Enjoy!

Sou marched in Melbourne (and has a blog post on HotWhopper about it):


Baerbel joined the rally in Stuttgart (organiser's Flickr album) and the march in Tübingen (video from the event) in southern Germany:


Ian joined the march in London (more of Ian's pictures in his album on Facebook):


Ken marched in Edinburgh (more pictures on the organisers' Facebook page):


John set his sights on creative signs at the march in Washington D.C. (and recorded several comments for episode 9 of Evidence Squared while there):


Sarah lucked out with the weather in Houghton, Michigan:


David marched in St. Louis (the organisers posted many pictures on their Facebook page)


Doug was taking a shower in Seattle:


Here is to a likewise successful March for Climate on April 29!

  2. Being a bit pedantic but in the Sarah in Michigan montage, she is carrying a placard that shows an illustration of an atom but the text talks about a photon.

    Also a photon has no electric charge, so is neutral.

  3. Paul D...  Maybe you need to zoom in a little or get new glasses. The sign says "proton" not "photon."

  4. Ahhh, that would make sense Rob.

    Difficult to make out whether that is an h or an r!

    Maybe a better critique is the choice of colour for that word!

  5. Paul... I'd ding her on her choice of using a stencil. Notoriously unreadable typeface that one, stencil. But the sign, otherwise, is pretty clever.

  6. Terrific! Good signs too. Thanks.
