Thanks to @westr for sharing this article. Bob writes: Beware, especially, of scientists and their “science.” The system (prestige, power, wealth, via grants, publications, national committees) sets the bias against impartiality within the entire scientific ecosystem.

“The challenge for all of us is to stay informed, but not fully formed in our views.”
