Ask a scientist 

Why are you marching in the Peoples Climate March?As a scientist, I was tracking climate change impacts when I recognized that I had a duty to provide the communities most vulnerable to those impacts with the scientific understanding they need to remain resilient. After all, I am a member of one of those communities. As in the case of “traditional” toxic pollution, communities of color will bear the brunt of climate change. Both the March for Science and the Peoples Climate March will make a clear statement that scientists—and the informed public—will not stand by while the administration and Congress place the narrow interests of polluters above public health and the environment. And one of the core values of the Peoples Climate March in particular is environmental justice. In fact, members of communities who are on the frontlines of global warming will be leading it, and I will march with my UCS colleagues to show support for them.
