Dressed for Church

From link at Instapundit (actually Driscoll) recounting the troubles of a new NY Times columnist, Bret Stephens, he of anti-Trump fame, who wrote a column that expressed a smidgen of doubt about things environmental. A follow-on included this opening paragraph from an article at the Claremont Review of Books The Church of Environmentalism, .

Julian Simon, the economist who was legendarily skeptical about environmental doom, once posed a question at an environmental forum: “How many people here believe that the earth is increasingly polluted and that our natural resources are being exhausted?” Almost every hand shot up. He then said, “Is there any evidence that could dissuade you?” There was no response, so he asked again, “Is there any evidence I could give you—anything at all—that would lead you to reconsider these assumptions?” Again, no response. Simon concluded, “Well, excuse me. I’m not dressed for church.”
