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.

Exposing eco-imperialism.....

Here are the details of Paul K. Driessen's challenging new book, just published: Eco-imperialism. Green power. Black death (2003). Direct links to Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, etc., are all provided at the web site.

This is Greenpeace Co-founder Patrick Moore's opinion of the book: “The environmental movement I helped found has lost its objectivity, morality and humanity. The pain and suffering it is inflicting on families in developing countries must no longer be tolerated. Eco-Imperialism is the first book I’ve seen that tells the truth and lays it on the line. It’s a must-read for anyone who cares about people, progress and our planet.”

Powerful stuff - recalling the final words of Anna Bramwell's little masterpiece, The fading of the greens (New Haven & London: Yale University Press, 1994, p. 208): The environment "...is the 'Northern White Empire''s last burden, and may be its last crusade."

As Private Eye might say -"Green is the new Empire Red" or "Green is the new 'othering'". The less Said on that the better!

Philip. Cerebral coffee time.
