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.

Health warnings.....

Two excellent letters to The Guardian plonking Michael Meacher's dire anti-GM diatribe of last Friday firmly in the freezer section: 'It's already in the fridge' (The Guardian, June 28):

"Most of Michael Meacher's comments misrepresent the science that many of the studies he refers to are based upon", says one.

I think these Guardian pieces should carry a 'Health Warning': Ecohype on Page: 80% by content.

Philip, suffering from some equally dire 24-hour bug. Still, can't take a 'sicky' from blogging. No deep red claret tonight though. Gripe water? "I don't care where the water goes...!"
