World's largest trophy hunting club is auctioning 300 hunts Spurred by a flurry of executive orders and presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway’s references to “alternative facts,” research scientists are venturing beyond the safety of the lab to do what they can to inform the public, and the president about the very real dangers the world faces due to Climate change. Aaron Parsons, UC Berkeley radio astronomer, wrote an open letter to President Trump. He shared it with his department, and other Academics and Researchers wanted to sign on…2,300 by the time the letter was sent. “When facts become politicized, then scientists have to speak up,” Parsons said. “We are fighting for what is knowledge, and how we know it.” Think about that. The very process of knowing, the *definition* of knowledge is being challenged by Donald Trump and GOP Congressional Corporate Puppets, aka GOP Leadership.
