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.

Carbon storage creeps into the UK under the hype.....

To date, carbon storage has received somewhat short shrift in the UK (except from some forward-looking geologists) - it might mean you don't have to change your lifestyle! This was nowhere near puritanical enough for many! Now, as economic realism shrugs a cold shoulder over more utopian 'green' dreams, folk are starting to take a proper look. As ever, a sound report from Alex K.: 'World "must have carbon stores"' (BBC Science/Nature News Online, April 29).

A timely example of BBC reporting illustrating the more rounded approach seemingly so decried by some commentators.
