THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES (NAS)
was established to advise the United
States on scientific and technical issues when President Lincoln signed a Congressional
charter in 1863. The National Research Council, the operating arm of the National Academy
of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering, has issued numerous reports on the
causes of and potential responses to climate change.

THE ROYAL SOCIETY
is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most
distinguished scientists. Its members are drawn from all areas of science, engineering,
and medicine. It is the national academy of science in the UK. 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.
