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 Day after.....

Trenchant review of The Day after Tomorrow in USA Today (May 24): '"Day After Tomorrow": a lot of hot air': "As a scientist, I bristle when lies dressed up as 'science' are used to influence political discourse. The latest example is the global-warming disaster flick, The Day After Tomorrow." Read on. No comment from me required.

And here is another, truly scathing, review from, of all places, Fox News itself (May 25): '"Day After" and $200 Million Short': "Hilariously awful in most places, with an incoherent script and questionable acting, 'Day After' will come on Friday and the question will be: Can innumerable, mind-numbing special effects, nearly all of them created on a computer and placed in what can only be called a random order, overcome sheer inanity?"

Philip, far more terrified, of course, by Harry Potter's Dementors! Now they do leave one cold! Salad?
