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' sceptics meet in London.....

Here is the initial BBC report of the Scientific Alliance's meeting entitled 'Apocalypse No' held in London today: 'Science sceptics meet on climate' (BBC Science/Nature Online News, January 27):

"The meeting takes place shortly before the Hadley Centre, part of the UK Met Office, hosts a conference on the science of climate change, from 1 to 3 February.

The Scientific Alliance hopes to address issues it fears will not be addressed by the Hadley Centre participants.

Dr Benny Peiser, one of the speakers at the London meeting, told the BBC: 'We are concerned the Hadley Centre conference will ignore key questions, particularly regarding the alarmist nature of future predictions.

It's important for people to know there are eminent scientists who don't share this viewpoint.'"

Absolutely. It will be illuminating to observe how little the media want to hear so sane a message rather than all the ecohype and hysteria.

Philip, independent of all groups, but with the argument here. Tea and Choral Evensong (from yesterday) on Radio 3. How soothing and civilized.
