They should be charged criminally for fudging these reports.

Unfortunately this is a huge problem in many industries, and goes back decades. I had a co-worker who studied environmental science, but got disillusioned as the majority of job prospects involved him fudging results for corporate concerns. His focus was on amphibian habitats, but construction companies wanted to figure out how to do the minimum like building fences to get their projects approved and then let the fences fall into disrepair. After a few years of that BS, he changed professions.
