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.

"From FY 1993 to FY 2014, government reports show that annual spending on “climate science” grew from $1.31 billion to $2.66 billon, for a total of $42.49 billion." That much money is going to influence a lot of research.
