Terry Wechsler wants to share this urgent message with you:
If you haven’t been on Twitter lately, there is a climate science storm brewing there that I think you will want to follow.
Scientists across all federal agencies are furious about gag orders. There are now Alt- and Rogue Twitter pages for the Park Service, EPA, NASA, National Weather Service, and more. Administration for most has been turned over to non-government employees for obvious reasons, but the information is coming from employees. On their own time, of course! [Note: I’m not letting a cat out of the bag here. They’re not hiding what they’re doing. On the contrary. They’re taking reasonable precautions, but their motto is #resist.]
A comprehensive list of the Alt/Rogue Twitter pages can be found at https://twitter.com/stollmeyereu/lists/twistance/members. It is maintained by an EU reporter from Belgium (!).
There is a planned March on Washington for Science, with sister marches to be coordinated a la the women’s marches.
They are aiming for March. Their FB page is https://www.facebook.com/marchforscience/
It is time for scientists, science enthusiasts, and concerned citizens to come together to make ourselves heard! This is a public page for discussion about a march on Washington by scientists and science enthusiasts in protest of the policies of the United States Congress and President Donald J. Trump.
Their website is http://www.scientistsmarchonwashington.com/ :
What is the Scientists’ March on Washington
Their Twitter page is @ScienceMarchDC.
Using Twitter, if you don’t already, is very similar to FB. You pick which people/groups/news media you want to follow. What is streaming there is remarkable. The agencies’ rogue employees are talking to each other through their Twitter pages. It’s remarkable and exciting and they are scared to death. They need our support!!!!!
