The Royal Society
The Royal Society is a Fellowship of many of the world's most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence.
The Society’s fundamental purpose, reflected in its founding Charters of the 1660s, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity. The Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history and Royal Society scientists continue to make outstanding contributions to science in many research areas. Our priorities
Promoting excellence in science
Supporting international collaboration
Demonstrating the importance of science to everyone
It is worth reading their website and some of their policy papers. It is rife with economic modelling (which is not a science) and are constantly preaching about 'over population', 'climate change' and 'transhumanism.'
They are a global charity funded by Governments and Corporations. (Private-public institution.)
Here's one of their latest press releases:
CLIMATE CHANGE : SCIENCE AND SOLUTIONS OVERVIEW1CLIMATE CHANGE : SCIENCE AND SOLUTIONS
A net zero climate-resilient future: science, technology and the solutions for change
"Policy and economics
Policy and economics play a major role in the deployment of the net zero tools provided by science and technology. Analysis informed in association with the British Academy shows how ‘Building back better’ from COVID-19 can ‘kick’ or ‘shift’ economies towards long-term incentives for emissions reduction, that can also support jobs, wellbeing, and the living world.
The evidence from research also shows that countries agree to coordinate their actions when they perceive that a catastrophe is looming. A generation of climate research has starkly demonstrated this is the case.
The positive message here is that if governments raise their ambitions, with science as a guide, then we can change course and build a sustainable, resilient, net zero future. As President of the Royal Society,
I thank all the contributors from around the globe that made these briefings possible. They provide a message of hope that together, through raising our level of ambition and working as one we can reach a net zero, climate resilient future and make that achievement the defining success of our age."
And, they're on board with the SDG of the World Economic Forum's global model in their new 5 year plan:
Supporting international collaboration
The Society will put increased importance on its international work with the aim of building partnerships between nations, promoting international relations and encouraging collaborations and networks that promote scientific understanding, improve scientific quality and address global challenges. The Society will contribute to international decision-
making, partner with leading scientific nations on emerging trends and technologies and support developing countries by working with them towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
Gosh, yet another massive institution masquerading as a charity coming to the conclusion we need global governance. How surprising.
Population Matters campaigns to achieve a sustainable human population, to protect the natural world and improve people’s lives.
We promote positive, practical, ethical solutions – encouraging smaller families, inspiring people to reduce excessive consumption and helping us all to live within our planet’s natural limits. We believe everyone should have the freedom and ability to choose a smaller family. We support human rights, women’s empowerment and global justice....
Although population growth in the 20th and 21st centuries has skyrocketed, it can be slowed, stopped and reversed through actions which enhance global justice and improve people's lives. Under the United Nations’ most optimistic scenario, a sustainable reduction in global population could happen within decades.
We need to take many actions to reduce the impact of those of us already here – especially the richest of us who have the largest environmental impact – including through reducing consumption to sustainable levels, and systemic economic changes.
One of the most effective steps we can take to reduce our collective environmental impact is to choose smaller family size, and empower those who can't make that choice freely to do so.
I guess we should just assume the "science" is settled when it comes to overpopulation? I wonder if they invite the opposing scientists to these meetings?!
