- Report: Prominent Scientist Admits To Pushing “Preapproved” Climate Change Narrative To Get Papers Published
by Steve Watson, https://summit.news/
“Editors of these journals have made it abundantly clear… they want climate papers that support certain preapproved narratives”
A climate scientist has admitted that he pushed a “preapproved” narrative on climate change in order to get papers published in leading journals.
Patrick T. Brown told The Free Press “I knew not to try to quantify key aspects other than climate change in my research because it would dilute the story that prestigious journals like Nature and its rival, Science, want to tell.”
He continued, “editors of these journals have made it abundantly clear, both by what they publish and what they reject, that they want climate papers that support certain preapproved narratives—even when those narratives come at the expense of broader knowledge for society.”
