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.

Reasons to be cheerless on this bright sunny morning.....

1. Reading tear-stained articles in The Groaniad by Madeleine Bunting entitled: 'Reasons to be cheerless' (The Guardian, March 1): "The meaninglessness of modern life exposes us to such despair that we need more than a stiff upper lip to cope." Grief!

2. Er, that's it... enough gloom, Ed.

After all, our hero, Peter Jackson ("We loves it, we loves it, forever!"), and the fabulous Ms Zellweger (from 'In pictures: Oscar winners', [BBC Entertainment News Online, March 1]) (and as predicted by EnviroSpin in Magic, music, and mildew on 'Cold Mountain', January 5 blog) both won their well-deserved Oscars. There's justice in them thar cold hills after all.

Put out more bunting, say I.

Philip, off to broadcast.
