We need a lot more of him. Too many fail to appreciate the lessons that science provides- and therefore succumb to polemicists (and charlatans) who disavow the need for vaccination, the change of our climate, and the relationship between pollution and health.
Teaching is an art, and few do it well. We need good teachers, and good science teachers especially are a valuable commodity. My late best friend from childhood was a 4th grade science teacher in the NYC schools for many years I agree with Cerebrations!
