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.

Home Sweet 'Home Planet' again.....

Our new Series of the critical environmental programme, 'Home Planet', starts this Tuesday (January 18) on BBC Radio 4. The Series will run for 13 Tuesdays.

If you are in the UK, the programme is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 every Tuesday afternoon at 15.02 GMT, directly after the news summary; if you are outside the UK, you may listen to it, online, via the BBC 'Home Planet' Web Page:

(a) on the day in question at 15.02 BST, choose the 'Listen Live' button; or, (b) for one week after the first broadcast, choose the 'Listen Again' button; or, (c) after one whole week, select the relevant date under 'Previous Programmes'.

This first week's topics include the geology of the Indian Ocean tsunami, 'How do we measure average world temperature change?', isostatic rebounding, and (a classic HP question): 'Can slugs smell?' As ever, Stotty will be there slugging it out with the other guests, and never at a snail's pace.

Philip, as ever happy to be back on the 'Home Planet' after wandering far and wide.
