Principia Scientific International: Serving the community
Here is the world’s first practicable alternative for scientists and members of existing national science associations who feel let down by what appears to be a culture of politicized science. Interested in joining this fast growing organization? Then join today by signing up here - it's free!
Professional scientists, engineers and related professionals have come together to address the need to form Principia Scientific International (PSI). PSI applies its talents to grow a business with enshrined charitable interests for the benefit of the broader community.
WHO ARE WE?
A selection of member biographies can be found here.
We are a non-political body – a new international science association for all scientists and engineers and those non-scientists who support our view that the traditional scientific method is preferable to politicized post-normal science.
We are proud of our ground breaking new open peer-to-peer (P2P) scientific review system we call PROM for the review of scientific papers. Our first appointed chair is Professor Timothy Ball a world-renowned climate scientist who was Professor of Climatology at the University of Winnipeg for thirty years. Our numbers are increasing rapidly (already 200+) and include a Nobel Prize nominee, a former President of a Royal Scientific Society, two former NASA experts who worked on the Apollo space program and US Bureau of Mines top engineers. Our rigor in performing scientific review has led us to reject outright the fraudulent greenhouse gas theory as having no basis in physics.
Our senior scientists have published the world`s first full volume refutation of the greenhouse gas theory “Slaying the Sky Dragon: Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory” which was reported as the talk of the UN Cancun climate conference at the time. A copy of the book is free to all new PSI members.
PSI is a business trading with a social purpose (“social enterprises”) carrying out projects supportive of robust science founded in empiricism and involving activities for the benefit of the community and not only for private profit. PSI serves its members (shareholders) and operates as per our Articles of Association. Not all PSI members are professional scientist - but all are supportive of honest and transparent science.
PSI places members’ interests before political ideology or profit. Although we endeavor to represent all science and scientists, we are not exclusively comprised of scientists. We welcome membership requests from non-science professionals who have a particular interest or working relationship to science and support the concept of non-politicized scientific endeavor.
The formation of this ambitious and dynamic international association is in direct response to the widely perceived erosion of free debate of contentious scientific ideas both in the media and the political arena (e.g. as typified by the furor about ‘global warming’).
Not only just for scientists and engineers, but if you work in the legal profession, journalism, or the public or private sector, from Alaska to Abu Dhabi, Queensland to Quebec, if you want to belong to an association that shares your beliefs in the universal principle that science should be free of propaganda, subterfuge and corruption, PSI offers a warm welcome for you.

OUR CORE VALUES EXPLAINED:
Principia Scientific International about transparency and truth; we shun the vagaries of political advocacy and choose not to subordinate ourselves to the moralizing pre-determinism of discredited ‘post normal’ science.
The essence of genuine scientific inquiry shall exemplify the sui generis, or the abiding maxim that goodness is indefinable and exists in science only insofar as the pursuit of truth ought to be our abiding goal.Our members feel a moral duty to preserve the traditional methods of open scientific inquiry free from persecution, ridicule and censure.
NEW RENAISSANCE OF THE TRADITIONAL SCIENTIFIC METHOD
The Association is indebted for its name to Sir Isaac Newton’s Principia Mathematica that signaled the modern legacy of the English Scientific Method, often shortened to just the traditional Scientific Method. But also we give thanks to British philosopher G. E. Moore and his 1903 book Principia Ethica that cautioned us as to the dangers of the ‘appeal to nature’ and the indeterminate construct of moralism; thus objective science is best served searching for truth rather than ‘goodness.’
RECLAIMING A SCIENTIFIC LEGACY
Over the past two decades there has grown a widespread perception of increased corporate and governmental meddling in science; disenfranchised specialists have sought to be heard in the one forum not yet entirely constrained by the gatekeeping mentality of self-serving politicians, media and publishing outlets: the Internet.
With the Internet as our main, but not exclusive, medium of operation we shall redress the balance and by our strength in numbers, advance the work of science authors and advocates seeking to distribute important new ideas/theories untainted by subjective ideology. To achieve our goals it is essential for us to seek to form a large, international subscriber-based association whereby those of talent and merit In this cause may receive this association’s technical, financial and moral support.
OUR MAIN FUNCTIONS:
PSI aims to promote best scientific practice in the community; to defend the interests of the members, to educate specialists and non-specialists about new theories and refinements in best practice; to disseminate amongst our members, domestically and internationally, news and views for the betterment of their knowledge and performance.
Our specific objectives include:
- Promoting the broadest possible dissemination of impartial science information untainted by politics or corporate interest in as many languages and to as many nations as possible
- Advancing independent, non-affiliated scientific discoveries unencumbered by political ideology or corporate financial interest.

- Providing impartial scientific advice and evidence to international policymakers, news outlets and the general public
- Being a cost effective ebook publishing service to our members at preferential rates for their personal and career advancement
- Offering financial support either by grant or loan, to authors in science who we believe have potential to advance the association’s core values
- Discouraging inappropriate or unconscionable scientific methods by exposing them where they are proven to exist
- Publicizing our successes via the Internet and mainstream media as appropriate (including television, books, radio, film).
