The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research
An organisation based in the United Kingdom that brings together scientists, economists, engineers and social scientists to "research, assess and communicate from a distinct trans-disciplinary perspective, the options to mitigate, and the necessities to adapt to current climate change and continuing global warming, and to integrate these into the global, UK and local contexts of sustainable development".
The London School of Economics (LSE)
The LSE is located in central London. The LSE has more than 11,000 students, just under seventy percent of whom come from outside the UK, and 3,300 staff. It had an income of £415.1 million in 2018/19, of which £32.1 million was from research grants. One hundred and fifty-five nationalities are represented amongst the LSE's student body and the school has the second highest percentage of international students (70%) of all world universities. Despite its name, the school is organised into 25 academic departments and institutes which conduct teaching and research across a range of pure and applied social sciences.

The Antidote to Fake News and Scams.
Wikipedia is an online encyclopaedia with hugely international spread. It is run by a not-for-profit Trust and is very careful to ensure that material displayed is checked out for accuracy – and highlights any that is not strictly reliable.

It is an absolutely essential source of accurate information for research.

It is owned by the Wikimedia Foundation.

The foundation was founded in 2003 by Jimmy Wales as a way to fund Wikipedia and its sibling projects through non-profit means. As of 2017, the foundation employs over 300 people, with annual revenues in excess of US$109.9 million. María Sefidari is chair of the board.
