    • Gosh, whatever could those dual things have to do with any other? lol

      • Who could be opposite Citizen Science? Who could be opposite saving a environment?

        If we check out many of a 1101 “projects” like we did we would find narrow-minded domestic activists, and “partner” organizations concerned as “Project co-ordinators”.

        (Look for their Project or Progress Reports) :)

        Little science, lots of domestic organizing.

        “March for Science” anyone?

        Don’t forget to wear that lovable “resistor” shawl :)
