The March for Science last Saturday was only a reaction to anti-Science political rhetoric. In this episode we set the stage by digging into the Republican Platform on the Environment and Energy, which has plenty of claims which can make scientists cringe. And of course, we couldn’t tell this story without reading some Trump tweets on climate change being a hoax.
In chasing down some of the scientists in a march in Salt Lake City we learn what the resistance has to say about the current political rhetoric. But we also learn some new things: (1) What walruses taste like, (2) Don’t eat ducks from the Great Salt Lake, and (3) Trump doesn’t believe in climate change (just kidding, that’s old news).
