Our favourite signs from Earth Day's March for Science
Saturday, April 22, 2017, 8:03 PM - In major cities around the world, people out enjoying the weather Saturday would have bumped into a throng or two of real mad scientists.
Not "mad" in sense of testing out some kind of James Bondian superweapon (not in public, anyway), but mad about what they see as threats to public science, scientific discourse, and general evidence-based decision-making, that have come about from the election of Donald Trump in the United States.
The new president is seen by many as heading an administration willing to suppress scientific evidence, prompting numerous Marches for Science in cities around the world to coincide with Earth Day, with no shortage of science-based humour.
Here are a few of our favourite signs spotted on Twitter. Enjoy.
