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.

Climatic Thoughts for a Tuesday.....or When Pooh Meets Wittgenstein

"On Tuesday, when it hails and snows,
The feeling on me grows and grows
That hardly anybody knows,
If those are these or these are those."

“… and whatever a man knows, whatever is not mere rumbling and roaring that he has heard, can be said in three words.” Motto quoted by Ludwig Wittgenstein at the start of Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1921; 1922) >>>>>


fx = “x is controllable”

fx is false for all values of x

How likely is?


Errrrrrr?!? Can I hold your hand, Pooh?

Philip. Time for a little something.....
*From the immortal poem: 'Lines Written by a Bear of Very Little Brain' (Winnie-The-Pooh, Chapter VII, 'In which Kanga and Baby Roo come to the forest, and Piglet has a bath').
