This protester knows her meteorology. During the last several years, the U.S. national weather radar network switched to using polarized radar beams to better distinguish between different types of precipitation (e.g., snow, sleet, rain). Also, the drawing on the left of the sign shows the radar depiction of a thunderstorm with a hook echo, which is an indication of a storm that can produce a tornado. Seen at the 2017 March for Science/Earth Day event in Washington, DC. Activities included teach-ins on scientific and environmental topics, speakers, music, and a march to the U.S. Capitol.
