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.

'Global warming' theory in serious trouble.....

One of the key tenets of 'global warming' theory is brought into question: 'Climatologist exposes cracks in global warming foundation' (Geo Community, SpatialNews.com, July 12):

"A new report from the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) exposes serious problems with the historical climate trends reconstruction published by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) -- the primary evidence used by policy makers and activists who espouse the theory that human activity is causing catastrophic global warming." (read on)

Here is the full NCPA Report: 'Breaking the "Hockey Stick"' (July 12).

And yet more jolly hockey sticks - just as we get this report, we have another doom-laden rant from Sir David King, Blair's 'global warming' poodle, adorning (of course) The Gloomiad: 'Melting ice: the threat to London's future' (The Guardian, July 14). Mr. Andrei Illarionov, President Vladimir Putin's personal adviser on economics, clearly rattled his samovar during King's recent visit to Russia: 'Illarionov Attacks Britain, Vows to Bury Kyoto' (The Moscow Times, July 12).

So will this new report. The poodle will have to woof and woof.

Philip, refraining from any comment at this stage. Just read the new report for yourself. Breakfast with The Times, I think, for a little more balance.
