Idealisme seorang ilmuwan

Bagi seorang ilmuwan (scientist), mempertahankan sebuah pendapat ilmiah sangatlah penting. Namun demikian, usaha mempertahankan pendapat ini dapat berakibat pengasingan, seperti yang dialami oleh seorang botanis bernama David Bellamy:

A respected botanist and the author of 35 books, he had presented around 400 programmes over the years and was appreciated by audiences for his boundless enthusiasm.

Yet for more than 10 years he has been out of the limelight, shunned by bosses at the BBC where he made his name, as well as fellow scientists and environmentalists.

His crime? Bellamy says he doesn’t believe in man-made global warming.

Ini rupanya salah satu ‘ongkos’ yang harus dibayar oleh seorang ilmuwan yang mempunyai idealisme.
