A Weblog monitoring coverage of environmental issues and science in the UK media. By Professor Emeritus Philip Stott. The aim is to assess whether a subject is being fairly covered by press, radio, and television. Above all, the Weblog will focus on science, but not just on poor science. It will also bring to public notice good science that is being ignored because it may be politically inconvenient.

Clarity on Carbon Dioxide

Ignore the fact that this Commentary is in The Washington Times. This is Professor Richard S. Lindzen at his clearest and most trenchant. Richard is the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He has been a contributor to climate science for almost 40 years, he is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and he is a lead author of the Second IPCC Climate Assessment. Focus on the argument, and not on your knee-jerk view of the newspaper. And note above all what he says about water vapour and clouds. We desperately need Lindzen to bring a few home truths to the UK. Time for a relaxed cuppa - I'll let this piece take the strain for a change. Philip.
