    Them and others like them, yes.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I get it. If scientific research is funded privately we shouldn't trust it, but if it's paid for by the government, we should.

    More conspiracy ideology with zero proof. Typical of those who have bought into the dogma.

    Right, any evidence that private funding of climate change research corrupts the science?

    There is much science out there that counters the current dogma. The idea that scepticism is not allowed is counter to all scientific principles.
