Words they don't want to read

The New York Times introduced a new columnist Friday - Bret Stephens.
Many disapprove.
What could Stephens write to upset them?
Let me put it another way. Claiming total certainty about the science traduces the spirit of science and creates openings for doubt whenever a climate claim proves wrong. Demanding abrupt and expensive changes in public policy raises fair questions about ideological intentions. Censoriously asserting one’s moral superiority and treating skeptics as imbeciles and deplorables wins few converts.
That will do it.
