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.

England - Rugby World Champions!

English Rugby Flag      UK Flag

"He that outlives this day and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
And rouse him at the name of Wilkinson!"

What can one say? As Wallabies weep, their tears just water our English Rose. Thanks lads - you have done us proud. It must be OBEs all round - and for Clive and Skipper Martin, a knighthood please (what leadership!). And who will ever forget that final drop goal....... Sublime, Jonny.

And here is the whole glorious shooting match: 'England revels in World Cup glory' (BBC Sport, November 22).

Environmental angst - who cares!

Philip - off to toast one of the greatest squads ever!
