Every continent, and one Time Lord, turned out for the March for Science

Tens of thousands of people across the planet marched for science on Saturday. The first-ever March for Science was a pro-science and political event, according to the march organizers, but not a partisan one. But in Washington, as the crowd streamed down Constitution Avenue, several marchers broke away from the pack. They clustered by a plaque that read, “United States Environmental Protection Agency,” snapping smiling photos. As the march passed the EPA headquarters, some began to chant, “Ho, ho, hey, hey, I support the EPA.” Other chanters took up a briefer slogan, announcing to the world that EPA administrator Scott Pruitt “sucks.”

The Washington march was one of some 600 rallies held in the United States and across the globe. Regina McCarthy, Pruitt’s predecessor who worked under the Obama administration, addressed a rally at Boston Common. “As Americans, as New Englanders, as Boston Strong — we care about our natural world!” McCarthy said, the Boston Globe reported. “Now is the time to speak truth to power!”
