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.

Lucky you.....

A gem from my old pal, Professor John Adams of UCL (the best - and UCL even produced Coldplay!): 'In defence of bad luck' (Sp!ked, December 22):

"This approach to risk management has little to do with increasing safety, and a lot to do with backside protection." I aaask you!

And just to remind you that the next 'Home Planet' is on BBC Radio 4 today. If you are in the UK, it is broadcast every Tuesday afternoon at 15.02 GMT on BBC Radio 4; if you are outside the UK, you may still listen to it, online, via the BBC 'Home Planet' Web Page: (a) on the day in question, choose the 'Listen Live' button; or, (b) for one week after the first broadcast, choose the 'Listen Again' button; or, (c) after one whole week, select the relevant date under 'Previous Programmes'. And today's topics? Black poplars, pubs and glass recycling, the Haskins Report, and Russian oil (we are ever eclectic!). Slick answers all round. Enjoy.

Now for a visit from our first grandson. Philip, with new responsibilities!
