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 Sudan and Chad: please support Oxfam.....

While the world has been otherwise engaged, more than one million people are suffering in the Sudan and in Chad from a disaster that is entirely a product of human greed and hatred.  As ever, dirty water and sanitation are core problems. Please help Oxfam, if you can, to supply clean drinking water and much-needed latrines.
The task is enormous, and the problem could last for months, if not years. 
Here are the Oxfam websites:
Oxfam UK;
Oxfam International.
Philip, remember clean water is one of the greatest needs throughout the world.  Thank you.
