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.

The Prince of Doom.....

Splendid little piece at Black Triangle on the Prince of Doom, our very own Michael Meacher MP: 'Applying the precautionary principle to the precautionary principle':

"Michael's life must be very depressing. One day we are all going to burn to death due to global warming, the next we are all going to die from cancer. What about the potentially toxic chemicals leaching from the mouse you are holding now! Have you seen any studies refuting the link between computer mice and cancer? Thought not. Be afraid, very afraid. Michael is."

Sino D (see Blog below) just loved that - her long nose shook with marsupial merriment.

Now, what would be our Michael's daemon, I wonder? Lord Philip (again!).
