The Royal Society is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. The Society’s fundamental purpose, as it has been since its foundation in 1660, is to recognize, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
Today they released a major new report titled the “People and the Planet Report”. Below are two introductory video links, followed by a summary and link to the 5MB PDF.
