More on the National Academy of Sciences

I wrote recently about the three new reports on climate change from the National Academy of Sciences.

For those who insist that these are government reports written by scientists who say that climate change is real and mostly caused by humans because they are paid to say that, comes this from the announcement on GlobalChange.gov:

The National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council are independent, nonprofit institutions that provide science, technology, and health policy advice under an 1863 congressional charter. Committee and panel members, who serve pro bono, are chosen by for each study based on their expertise and experience and must satisfy the Research Council’s conflict-of-interest standards. The resulting consensus reports undergo external peer review before completion. For more information, visit http://national-academies.org/studycommitteprocess.pdf.
