March for Science
Braving bad weather, a small group showed up for the March for Science Kaua‘i on April 14 in Līhu‘e.
Science Makes the World Go Round
The March for Science is a celebration of science. It’s not only about scientists and politicians, it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives.
Braving the rain and cool weather, about two dozen people from all over Kauai joined forces Saturday in support of science.
“The March for Science is a celebration of science. It’s not only about scientists and politicians, it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives,” said one march organizer, Nancy Kanna, with the Hawaii Alliance for Science.
Science, Kanna said, helps humanity discover and illuminate truths upon which policy makers can act to better the lives of people they serve.
March for Science Set for Saturday
On April 14, supporters from across the world will unite again, to hold our elected officials responsible for enacting equitable, evidence-based policies that serve all communities and science, for the common good.
The Hawaii Alliance for Science is hosting its second annual March for Science Saturday, in collaboration with a range of other groups.
The event will be held Saturday, near the entrance of Lihue Airport, on the northwest corner of Ahukini Road and Kapule Highway, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All are invited to participate in the non-partisan movement to celebrate science and the role it plays in everyday life.

Hawaii: A March for Humanity
The March for Science brought out a different crowd indeed and it was pretty amazing to see the civility and cooperation come out in people from all walks of life.
Given all the brouhaha happening around the Hawaii March for Science, I was a bit hesitant to see what would unfold. There had been a lot of talk on social media urging people to protest my presence and the group I represented, the Alliance for Science.
As people started to gather for the rally, I saw the protesters’ signs out in the crowd. There were four protesters gathered right in the front of the media folks, holding anti-Alliance signs to make it clear they did not welcome me at this march.
Marching for Science and Democracy!
The science march will be a success only if we succeed in bridging divides, and reminding America and the world that the scientific method does not belong to any political party or special interest group.
The Cornell Alliance for Science supports and endorses the March for Science, due to take place on April 22, 2017 in Washington D.C. and other locations around the world. We will be marching, and we hope you will, too.
Scientists and science supporters don't often march, and there are good reasons why. Science is not activism. Science can establish objective truths, and others make of them what they will, according to competing philosophies and value systems.
So what makes April 22 different? Truth itself, and the process of establishing it objectively, is now increasingly under assault across the globe, threatening the very tenets of democracy.

Hawaii GMO Papaya: Real Solutions, Real Lives
As the anti-GMO movement divides rural communities in Hawaii, farmers growing papayas genetically engineered to resist the ringspot virus have been caught in the middle.
This documentary chronicles the spread of the devastating ringspot virus, the development of the first transgenic papaya, and the rise of an anti-GMO movement based on misinformation and fear.
Hawaii agricultural leaders call for dialogue, discussion and accurate information about biotechnology to help bridge the divide and ensure the success of farmers in the Islands and other elsewhere.
