“For more than a year President Trump and his administration have attacked and disparaged scientists and their work," Pallone said. "These attacks are preventing our government from taking part in crucial research on issues like climate change. It is more important than ever that we stand up for science and the indispensable role it must play in making public policy. It is not acceptable to reject scientific findings simply because they do not fit into one’s narrow world view or ideological crusade. I want to thank all those who are standing up to this ignorance and marching to bring reason back to our government.”
