Bill Moyers cites October 27 2004 Grist article approvingly, where author Glenn Scherer remembers James Watt telling Congress environmentalism was unnecessary, as Jesus Christ would come back to save us before anything really bad happened. "'God gave us these things to use. After the last tree is felled, Christ will come back,' Watt said in public testimony that helped get him fired." Read more in Schere's article, "The Godly Must be Crazy: Christian-right views are swaying politicians and threatening the environment".
