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.

Do not miss this wonderful vote.....

The ever-splendid Oz-blogger, Tim Blair, has the most hilarious vote on the Kyoto Protocol. Do not miss such a democratic opportunity:

'How will you celebrate ratification of the Kyoto Protocol?' (vote on the left-hand side of the screen). Here are the options the appropriately-named Blair thoughtfully provides so that you can cogitate before you vote:
* Sacrifice first-born to appease furious Gaia;

* Big 'THANK YOU NICE PEOPLE' in lead-based paint on local Greenpeace office;

* Honour first Australians by incinerating 100 hectares of old-growth forest;

* Invent the "Bob Brown", a cocktail made with vodka, lime, and soil;

* Grill huge clam steaks carved from the flanks of genetically-interbred mollusc cows that rove the ocean floor feasting on delicious coral;

* Continue to work towards ratification of crucial Takayama, Kurashiki, and Hyogo Prefecture Protocols;

* Write dull opinion piece about 'urgent need for US and Australia to join rest of world.'

Philip, "What larks, Pip." I'm off for a mollusc-cow steak (medium rare) to eat under my patio heater. How rib-tickling.
