Its members, dedicated to discovery through observation and experiment, form a roll-call of scientific fame: Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Charles Darwin, Stephen Hawking. All contributed scientific papers that together recount what geneticist Alec Jeffreys –_ the father of DNA fingerprinting and a current member of the society — calls “this amazing journey over the past 350 years.” …

This is from their official position on climate change:

“International scientific consensus agrees that increasing levels of man-made greenhouse gases are leading to global climate change.” “Climate change

Once “dedicated to discovery through observation and experiment”, now dedicated to consensus. Newton would be appalled.
