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.

"There'll be new clouds over/The Black Cliffs of Dover....."

While the more puritanical wing of the Green lobby is bound to regard this as 'clouding' the issue (not enough hair shirts and scourges involved), 'Blue-sky thinking about climate' (BBC Science/Nature News Online, January 7), it is at least multivariate and more adaptive and inventive in its approach to climate change. The emphasis, however, remains on 'climate management', which I regard as largely impossible and totally unpredictable, rather than on economic and socio/political adaptation to climate change, whatever its ultimate direction(s). Nevertheless, this is leaps and bounds more interesting and fun than the moribund and irrelevant Kyoto Protocol!
