When I saw that the “March for Science” was going to honor Bill Nye “The Sex Junk” Guy (Warning: you can not unsee this video) and Michael “Climate Bully” Mann, I knew this was nothing more than another phony sanctimonious narcissistic liberal lovefest designed to promote the corruption and politicization of science. To test my hypothesis that no honest self-respecting scientist would ever attend such an event I went searching for the list of speakers at this “March for Science,” and sure enough, not a single Nobel Prize in Science winner could be found. Michael “The Inquisition” Mann claims to have a Nobel Prize, but that is a Nobel PEACE Prize given to the IPCC, not a Nobel Prize in Science for work actually done in Science.
‘[Mann] did not receive any personal certificate’—Geir Lundestad, Dir. Prof. for The Norwegian Nobel Inst.: 1) Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. 2) He did not receive any personal certificate. He has taken the diploma awarded in 2007 to IPCC (& to Al Gore) & made his own text underneath this authentic-looking diploma’
Nobel Committee corrects Mann: ‘The text underneath diploma is entirely his own. We issued only the diploma to IPCC as such. No individuals on IPCC side received anything in 2007’
Being a liberal event there is always a hidden agenda, and the one certainty is that the stated mission is not what the event is actually about. The “March for Science” wasn’t about science, at best it was about promoting the politicization of science, encouragement of pseudoscience and of course, more funding.
In other words, the “march for science” is just another mob of ignorant leftist loudmouths who want to enslave us all even more than we already are with huge new economy-destroying/unemployment-generating taxes and Soviet-style central planning of the economy in the name of “saving” Mother Earth. If they were really interested in helping the planet out, they would have spent their weekend picking up trash on the streets of D.C. instead of generating tons of it.
The other piece of evidence that this was simply a liberal lovefest, and not a legitimate “March for Science,” is that it was highly exclusionary. Just like the leftist “Women’s March” excluded Pro-Life Women, Berkeley excludes speakers like Milo and Ann Coulter, and every other liberal event, you either join the herd, tow the party line, embrace the groupthink, or be gone. Leftist politics is extremely intolerant of any dissension in the ranks. Leftists are the party of “collective rights,” “societal rights,” “the greater good,” they are not fans of individual rights. Community organizers aren’t working for the good of the individual, they aren’t personal life coaches helping someone with self-improvement, they are organizing communities behind a common cause, often a cause that is harmful to the individual being organized.
On Monday, it was revealed one of the sponsors of the march was removed from the event list due to outrage over the sponsor’s pro-life views. The group, New Wave Feminists, based out of Texas, is comprised of pro-life women who oppose Trump’s election. The organizers of the march claimed the platform is a pro-choice one which advocates for “open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people,” which is ultimately why the pro-life group is no longer welcome to participate. Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America are sponsors of the event, but sadly there is no room for a pro-life group at a march representing and celebrating the diversity of feminism.
Here is the list of speakers at the “March for Science,” not a single Nobel Laureate listed. While I was unable to find any notable scientists on this list of speakers, I was able to find plenty of non-scientists, political groups, and NGOs. One would think that a “March for Science” would have to turn away real scientists from speaking, instead, it appears they had serious trouble finding anyone willing to attach their name to this event.
Here are a few names I felt were worth highlighting.
- Jane Hirshfield Award-winning Poet
- Roger Johnson President, National Farmers Union
- Timothy Ingalsbee Executive Director, Firefighters United for Safety, Ethics and Ecology (FUSEE)
- Lydia Villa-Komaroff Founding Member, Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS)
- Shawn Otto Author of The War on Science & Co-founder and producer of US Presidential science debates
- Jeane Wong CEO & Founder, The League of Extraordinary Scientists and Engineers
- Taylor Richardson Aspiring Astronaut
- Dan Abrams Global Director of Earth Day
- Mark Tercek President and CEO, The Nature Conservancy
- Joe Romm Founding Editor, ClimateProgress.org
- Maya Lin Artist, Environmentalist, Founder and President of What Is Missing? Foundation
- Rachel Kyte CEO and Special Representative to the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All
- Christy Goldfuss Vice President, Energy and Environmental Policy, Center for American Progress
- Heidi Cullen Chief Scientist, Climate Central
- Jamie Rappaport Clark President & CEO, Defenders of Wildlife
- Lawrence Benenson Charitarian
- Brooke Bateman Director of Climate Watch, National Audubon Society, Science Division
- Mustafa Santiago Ali Senior Vice President of Climate, Environmental Justice and Community Revitalization, Hip Hop Caucus
Nowhere on the list of speakers or sponsors can you find anything close to legitimate scientists or scientific organizations. Real climate scientists like Dr. Spencer and Christy at UAH were not only not invited or welcomed, they had their windows shot out. Dr. Pielke Jr and Dr. Curry were also notably absent, as were Anthony Watts and Kenji.
The smartest people on the planet want to oppose Trump & the best they can come up with is a march in support of themselves? – Roger Pielke Jr
Here are the sponsors of the “March for Science,” doubtful a legitimate science organization among any of them. The Orwellian “Union of Concerned Scientists” only requires a credit card for membership, no degree or professional requirements at all. They are mostly left-wing political advocacy groups masquerading as legitimate scientific authorities except, of course, maybe the “Hip Hop Caucus.”
Notably absent from the list of speakers and organizations are NASA, The Nobel Organization, The National Academy of Science, Science and Nature Magazine, Dr. James Hansen, NOAA Whistleblower John Bates, EPA Chief Scott Pruitt, or any organization that even slightly resembles a conservative leaning or Trump affiliation. This march was nothing more than political theater, and the real scientists know that, and that is why they avoided the event. The politicization of science is the greatest threat to real science, and the groups pushing that agenda are all listed on the “March for
Climate Funding Science” website, right next to the “Donate” button. With friends like leftists, scientists don’t need enemies.
Post Publish Comment: The New Republic Magazine, delivering a blow to Micheal Mann’s ego, acknowledged that there was only one recognizable “scientist” at the “March for Science,” Bill Nye the Science Guy. Unfortunately, that isn’t a joke.
