The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology is leading a one-day social media campaign today to highlight the importance of leading with science and scientific solutions as the committee works to provide support for science and the scientific community. The “tweetstorm” will run from noon to 5 p.m. (EST) and will involve a variety of science-related organizations, including the American Nuclear Society.
Organizations are being asked to post messages on their social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) related to five categories:
- American leadership in STEM
- Environmental justice
- Combating the climate crisis
- Scientific integrity
Three hashtags have been created for the campaign: #ScientificSolutions, #SolvingtheClimateCrisis, and #EnvironmentalJusticeforAll.
Wednesday is also the White House’s climate-focused action day, according to the committee’s press secretary, Catherine Anderson.
