10 Of The Best Signs From The March For Science
Today's March for Science brought massive crowds to downtown L.A., all in the name of objective reality. The art of the sign has become a recent cultural phenomenon thanks to the glut of public demonstrations, and Saturday's march didn't disappoint. Science-related puns were ubiquitous, as were incessant reminders that these marchers are actual scientists who should be doing other things with their time. The sun bore down on everyone's faces as a spotlight on the reason why everyone showed up in the first place (hello, climate change). 610 satellite marches occurred all around the world, and Los Angeles proved itself yet again as a huge location for public displays of dissent.
