Dilbert creator Scott Adams isn’t afraid of taking controversial positions, including supporting Donald Trump for president last year, but his latest stand on climate change might have him in the most hot water yet.
Watch how many people conflate "economic models" with "climate models" and call me a science denier today. Fun! https://t.co/ZvKoCSYe7H

There’s nothing like sarcasm and wit to adeptly mock liberal positions, and Adams used Dilbert to illustrate his point perfectly:
In a March blog post called “How to Convince Skeptics that Climate Change is a Problem,” Adams expressed that, while he does prefer to side with a majority of scientists, it’s “mind-boggling to me that the scientific community can’t make a case for climate science that sounds convincing.”
So, what would it take to convince everyone, according to Adams? There are 14 key things, and all of them are worth checking out. Here are a couple:
When you claim the oceans have risen dramatically, you need to explain why insurance companies are ignoring this risk and why my local beaches look exactly the same to me. Also, when I Google this question, why are half of the top search results debunking the rise? How can I tell who is right? They all sound credible to me.
If you want me to believe warmer temperatures are bad, you need to produce a chart telling me how humankind thrived during various warmer and colder eras. Was warming usually good or usually bad?
You also need to convince me that economic models are accurate. Sure, we might have warming, but you have to run economic models to figure out how that affects things. And economic models are, as you know, usually worthless.
And now, Adams’ Sunday cartoon, appearing right next to the likes of Doonesbury in every newspaper in the country, that questions the ‘settled wisdom’ for literally all to see.
Needless to say, liberal heads are exploding.
But first, this…
For entertainment, watch how none of my critics disagree with anything I say on this topic. https://t.co/T2LzTwnAS4

He’s right, of course. Here’s a sampling of critics from the peanut gallery:

@ScottAdamsSays Circular argument from the self proclaimed cognitively superior Scott Adams…

@ScottAdamsSays You’re a funny puppeteer. Keep to the stuff you actually understand. Like corporate idiocy. Climate change science is beyond your grasp.

Scott Adams used to be my hero, then he got a bit weird about affirmations, and now finally he's a climate change denier. So sad. https://t.co/7lP7h6hIeR
