Climate scientist admits editing paper to fit 'preapproved narratives'

  • The lead author of a study on climate change and California wildfires admitted to omitting information that could detract from the narrative on the negative impact of climate change. The study, published in the journal Nature, found that human-caused climate warming has increased the frequency of fast-spreading wildfires.
  • The author's admission has sparked controversy, with the journal Nature defending its editorial standards and stating that it does not have a preferred narrative. Peer reviewers had questioned the exclusion of variables other than climate change from the study.
  • Despite the controversy, co-authors of the study emphasized the robustness of the research and its valuable contributions to understanding wildfire behavior. The study used artificial intelligence to analyze the relationship between temperature and wildfire growth, finding that extreme wildfires in California have increased by 25% due to human-caused warming.
