The Scientific Alliance:

  •  Supports a rational and informed environmental debate
  •  Supports the need for appropriate and targeted environmental protection
  •  Believes that environmental policy must be based on scientific evidence
  •  Will work to ensure that environmental policies are designed to achieve tangible and significant environmental    benefits
  •  Aims to ensure that proposed environmental policy is based on actual environmental damage, not speculation

Current Issues
