Ask him for further reading, so that you can follow the logic yourself. Truth is, he's right on this point, and you will be a more credible conservative in general if you don't close your ears to evidence and go la-la-la when he makes a logical case.

Your best way to budge him off that stance is to budge yourself in this instance, where he's right and you're wrong.

If finally, mercifully, any one of the so-called “climate models” that so far have failed to “model” climate accurately, suddenly and then accurately begin to “model” climate in real time, then, well, WOW!

“Experts say the wooded areas in the region could increase by 50% over the coming decades,” writes the UK’s Daily Mail, “and accelerate global warming in the process. Researchers have unveiled the most accurate map ever (!) of how vegetation could change in...
