Are scientists driven by money to fabricate reports about climate change?

  • If a government provides a budget for research into a particular thing, an incentive then exists for the researchers to confirm the evidence of that thing. The more catastrophic it sounds, the more important it is to continue funding the research.

  • Researchers who speak out against the consensus are less likely to get funding.

  • Any research that isn't "exciting" is less likely to get published.
