The March for Science nyc • April 22, 2017

Thousands of scientists, teachers and environmentally-conscious New Yorkers jammed midtown Manhattan on Saturday to take part in the March for Science, a world-wide Earth Day event held in 600 cities to celebrate science and to bring about a greater awareness and discussion on global warming.

Participants occupy multiple blocks of Central Park West ahead of the March for Science, which started at 71st Street and Central Park West and ended in Times Square.

Although the March for Science movement was conceived as then-candidate Donald Trump disavowed climate change while on the campaign trail, claiming it a hoax, organizers state that the March for Science movement is not only about scientists and politicians, but also how the real role science impacts mankind.

A sign speaks to Mr. Trump's claim that global warming is a hoax. In 2016 Mr. Trump tweeted, "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

Support for Mr. Trump's pick of Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency, the former Oklahoma Attorney General who sued the EPA over its rules, has drawn harsh criticism and called into question the administration's commitment to the environment. Trump's budget also cuts the agency's Office of Research by 50%.
