Dilbert Disses Global Warming; Liberal Heads Explode

Scott Adams has gone full-on climate denialist in his latest Dilbert strip, causing liberal heads to explode.

Some of his old fans just aren’t happy at this betrayal of The Cause:

it’s a shame to see this as I used to think he was very funny. The Way of the Weasel was an awesome book.
it could be dementia – that is a thing that happens to people

On Scott Adams, his comic strip and thought processes have pretty clearly jumped the shark

The man has become a dangerous idiot.
I guess 30-ish years of minor fame and a little bit of pussy took his brain for a ride.

No doubt it is an accident of the pen. But the “climate scientist” in the cartoon bears more than a passing resemblance to Michael Mann, globally renowned inventor of the “Hockey Stick” and winner – or so he used to claim till he got rumbled – of the Nobel Prize.

As Homer would say, this cartoon is funny because it’s true. In fact it sums up pretty much everything the layman needs to know about the state of climate “science” and how it abuses the public trust.

So, it starts with truths which are widely accepted – “the basic science of physics and chemistry”.

Then – like a street magician or a confidence trickster – it slips quickly from the realm of evident truth into a world of illusion: “We put that data into dozens of different climate models and ignore the ones that look wrong to us.”

Anyone who questions this groupthink is labelled a “science denier.”

But as Adams has grasped it has nothing to do with science. Rather it’s about the politically driven misapplication of models which have no real-world basis.

This cartoon is by no means Adams’s first brush with WrongThink.

In September last year, he caused more liberal heads to explode by publicly switching his allegiance from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump.

One of his cannier insights was that Trump’s bluster is actually a sign of emotional intelligence and deal-making skills rather than a sign – as the progressives continue to believe – that he is a dangerous lunatic.

Trump “paces” the public – meaning he matches them in their emotional state, and then some. He does that with his extreme responses on immigration, fighting ISIS, stop-and-frisk, etc. Once Trump has established himself as the biggest bad-ass on the topic, he is free to “lead,” which we see him do by softening his deportation stand, limiting his stop-and-frisk comment to Chicago, reversing his first answer on penalties for abortion, and so on. If you are not trained in persuasion, Trump look scary. If you understand pacing and leading, you might see him as the safest candidate who has ever gotten this close to the presidency. That’s how I see him.

Dilbert has gone fascist“, Salon’s Amanda Marcotte responded, with typical verve, wit, and lightness of touch.

Then in March this year, the jack-booted, blackshirted cartoonist caused further outrage by composing one of the best essays ever written as to why the claims of climate alarmists should be taken with a huge pinch of salt.

It was titled How To Convince Skeptics That Climate Change Is A Problem.

    Everyone loves wit, except when they bear the brunt of it. Suddenly, Scott Adams is a has-been who never was??? Hardly. “No lie that one can invent beats a truth that’s told with bad intent”. Climate alarmism is being outed and falling like Icarus.

    We can line up hundreds of credible scientists who will doubt or refute MMGW. We can employ exquisite data, logic, and reasoning to blow the scam to pieces. But in today’s environment, humor and public ridicule will cut these fraud mongers the deepest.

    When socialist MMGW scammers become the butt of jokes they know their jig is up.
