Professor Lennart Bengtsson, professorial research fellow at the University of Reading, said:He continues:
“I do not believe there is any systematic “cover up” of scientific evidence on climate change or that academics’ work is being “deliberately suppressed”, as The Times front page suggests."
"I am worried by a wider trend that science is being gradually being influenced by political views. Policy decisions need to be based on solid fact."which is a very strange (naive?) thing for a climate scientist who had just joined a political organization to say.
The rest is here.
It will be interesting to see if The Times issues a correction. (Don't hold your breath.)
