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.

One for Polly to read.....

First, last week's New Statesman online poll went pro-nuclear by 73.8% to 26.1% (my last reading of it, just before it was expunged from the ether).

Now this: 'Nuclear power: a convert' (The New Statesman, May 30):
"Mark Lynas was sure it would be a disaster - and then he looked at the alternatives....."

Just so. Mark is a real, hot, scorching 'global warmer' - so this is noteworthy. Time for Polly to do the same.

Philip, glad to see the Old Left starting to see sense, and Mark's own new Lynas. Some flexibility of thinking there. Time for a jolly glass, methinks.
