Formed in 2001, the Scientific Alliance is a non-profit membership-based organisation, now based in Cambridge (England). The Alliance brings together both scientists and non-scientists committed to rational discussion and debate on the challenges facing the environment today.

Between 2004 and 2007, Robert Durward of Cloburn Quarry Ltd. donated nearly one million pounds to the Scientific Alliance to challenge claims about global warming. Also, the group co-authored a 2004 report debunking climate science with the ExxonMobil-funded George C. Marshall Institute.

According to SourceWatch, in January 2005 the Scientific Alliance hosted a half-day conference for climate change sceptics, "Apocalypse No - Assessing catastrophic climate change." Speakers included David Bellamy, S. Fred Singer, Richard S. Lindzen, Nils-Axel Morner, Benny Peiser, and Colin Berry. (SourceWatch entry for Scientific Alliance, accessed Oct. 16, 2007)
