"I think that it is the duty of scientists to help their fellow citizens to understand
the problems, and to give them the benefit of their own knowledge about the scientific

opinions, in order to help their fellow citizens."
Linus Pauling. "Preliminary Script for German TV Program." Interview by Harald von Troschke May 26, 1976.
