I work as a consultant, and I get paid for delivering what the client wants.
Climate scientists work as consultants to the government, who pays their contracts. Either they deliver what the government wants, or their funding gets cut off.
It is not a conspiracy. Rather it is a simple business arrangement. Everyone who works in climate science understands it.
But their work certainly has nothing to do with either climate or science. They are propagandists on a $29 billion/year budget.
