Calls for transparency in science

The New Zealand Association of Scientists is calling for more transparency around scientific advice.

It comes after RNZ revealed the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor raised concerns with the EPA about its former chief scientist and comments she made over irrigation. It only came to light after an Official Information Act request, months after she resigned. 

NZAS co-president Craig Stevens tells us why he thinks the public should not have been kept in the dark.
