Huge March for Science in Brisbane
1000 people marched through Brisbane to hear speakers talk about the importance of funding science research organisations and basing public policy on evidence.
"Our research organisations, both our universities and industry driven organisations like the CSIRO are critical for our future as a society," spokesperson Joel Gilmore told Green Left Weekly.
"We are going to have to move on from fossil fues as being one of our key economic drivers," he said echoing a strong sentiment in the crowd for recognising climate science and rejecting "alternative facts".
