"People ask me if I believe in climate change. I tell them I don't 'believe' in climate change — it's not worthy of belief. All it is is data. My faith informs my reaction to the data, but it's not worthy of belief. So it's just what are you going to do with the data? How are you going to respond to it? And that's what we call a 'climate realist.'"
— Bob Inglis, former congressman and executive director of republicEn.org, a conservative organization that seeks to fight climate change with free enterprise, at the Penn State Forum on Sept. 8 at the Nittany Lion Inn.
