'Dilbert' Tackles Climate Science Absurdity

In an entertainment and media world dominated by liberals, Dilbert comic artist Scott Adams is a breath of fresh air.

Sunday’s Dilbert cartoon mocked climate scientists for calling climate change skeptics “deniers,” when the scientists themselves jump through a laughable number of hoops to conclude man-made climate change “will lead to a global catastrophe.” The comic ran May 14.

In the comic, Dilbert’s boss invited a climate scientist to explain how climatologists predicted the impact of climate change. The result was a hilarious send-up of how such scientists respond.

“We measure changes in temperature and CO2 over time,” the scientist explained, then “put that data into dozens of different climate models and ignore the ones that look wrong to us. Then we take that output and run it through long-term economic models of the sort that have never been right.”

“Who hired the science denier?” the scientist demanded when Dilbert asked “What if I don’t trust the economic models?”

This isn’t the first time Adams has used his cartoonist platform to point out liberal absurdity. In addition to his daily comic, Adams writes a blog where he regularly tackles the left’s double standards.

Adams predicted as early as October 2015 that Donald Trump would win the presidential election. At the time, he said it would be by a “landslide.”

In November 2016 he wrote, “CNN is temporarily a comedy network because it is hilarious to watch them avoid mentioning CLinton while pretending to cover a race that allegedly involves two candidates.”

More recently, Adams addressed FBI Director James Comey’s firing on Twitter and his blog.
