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 Conference, featuring leading experts on climate-change issues, will raise awareness about the scientific uncertainties surrounding climate-change theory. It will also address a number of questions concerning scenarios of catastrophic climate change, including:

Apocalypse No will be taking place in advance of the Met Office’s Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research Conference, Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change: a Scientific Symposium on Stabilisation of Greenhouse Gases, from 1-3 February. Tony Blair has promised that the Met Office Conference: "... will address the big questions on which we need to pool the answers available from the science." It is hoped that this prior Conference will help to ensure that no questions or answers are overlooked, or unwisely assumed.
