This post links to a 38 page paper by Andrew Montford, "Nullius in Verba - The Royal Society and Climate Change". As Professor Richard Lindzen says in his foreword: "Andrew Montford provides a straightforward and unembellished chronologyof the perversion not only of The Royal Society but of science itself, wherein the legitimate role of science as a powerful mode of inquiry is replaced by the pretence of science to a position of political authority."
Montford concludes his paper with this: "Each year that temperatures refuse to rise in line with the nightmare scenarios trumpeted by one president after another, the risk grows that the Society becomes a laughing stock. If government money is a drug of which the Society cannot or will not rid itself, its leadership could at least remind itself of those words of Lord Adrian over 50 years ago: “It is neither necessary nor desirable for the Society to give an official ruling on scientific issues, for these are settled far more conclusively in the laboratory than in the committee room.”
