Transcript

Downtown San Diego will be filled with scientists, researchers, teachers and supporters Saturday morning as San Diego's "March for Science" takes place for the second year.

San Diego's march is one of more than 230 planned around the world. It is set to begin at 10 a.m. in downtown San Diego at Waterfront Park.

March organizers say the aim is to celebrate science and highlight its importance in our lives.

Hundreds of thousands of people around the world participated in the March for Science last year. Organizers estimated that 15,000 people took part in San Diego's march last year.

Jeff Severinghaus, a professor of geosciences at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, is speaking at the march.

Severinghaus will join KPBS Midday Edition on Friday to discuss his research and why he plans to participate in the march.
