Some Scientists Are Taking A Stand Against Trump. Should They?

Scientists are organizing an unprecedented march in Washington, DC and other cities in April to show support for the evidence-based scientific method. Many scientists are concerned with President Trump's positions on climate change, environmental issues, and proposed funding cuts for the EPA and NOAA. Some scientists have even decided to run for office. But other scientists think these efforts will hurt their fields by tainting research as partisan. Joining Joshua Johnson for this conversation is Rush Holt, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, marine biologist and strategy consultant for ocean conservation, Robert Young, professor of coastal geology at Western Carolina University and Shaughnessy Naughton, founder of 314 Action.
