Terry Dunleavy Can we trust NIWA?

The article focuses on the manipulation of climate data in the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric (NIWA) Research in New Zealand. It mentions that there is lack of contestability on the involvement of NIWA officials in an attempt to discredit the position paper on climate change that states a correlation with southern oscillation than with emissions of greenhouse gases. It notes that the position paper stated the belief of climate scientists that the warming trend is of human origin.
