She writes about how we can use the ocean without using it up on the National Geographic blog and @ayanaeliza. As a defender of science, after hearing about the march she knew she had to get involved. Tune in to hear more about the overwhelming support science has received from the public and how scientists can and should be doing more to help influence the policies that affect all our lives.
Thank you to the wonderful staff at the Carnegie Institution for Science for use of their beautiful space and recording this podcast. Thanks to our taste of science DC team and the March for Science for putting together such a great event. Finally, Paul was not only generous with his time but his music - for this we are incredibly grateful. The track featured here is "Of Water and Ice" from his album of the same name which is freely available for you to listen to. All of the electronic sounds are generated by interpretations of either algorithms that mirror the geometry in ice crystals or the math of climate change data.
