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.

A geological perspective on risk.....

There is one occasional Guardian correspondent whom I find excellent, namely Bill McGuire, Director of the Benfield Hazard Research Centre at University College London (UCL) - then all the best people are from UCL! He has a nice way of putting the world's imagined problems into real geological perspective. Here is his 'Analysis' piece from today's newspaper: 'Heebie gee-gees', (The Guardian, October 22). Now what is that rumbling noise.....? Whoops! Very dusty round here today. Phillipus of Pompeii.
