Opinion in Brief

Mona Charen: “Do you have march fatigue yet? The Left, apparently, does not, so we’re in for some street theater on Earth Day, April 22, with the so-called March for Science. It’s hard to think of a better way to undermine the public’s faith in science than to stage demonstrations in Washington, DC, and around the country modeled on the Women’s March on Washington that took place in January. The Women’s March was an anti-Donald Trump festival. Fine. I found it vulgar and demeaning to women, but it’s a free country. Science, however, to be respected, must be purely the search for truth. The organizers of this ‘March for Science’ — by acknowledging that their demonstration is modeled on the Women’s March — are contributing to the politicization of science, exactly what true upholders of science should be at pains to avoid.”
