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.

Canada goose.....

This old goose is now Canada-bound for a short migration. So expect a brief lacuna in my sonorous honking, belonging, as I do, to the 'Cackling Goose' geographical race. I am looking forward to nesting in Stanley Park. I refuse, however, to moult on golf courses.

Expect some Grizzly 'Home Thoughts' (if you can bear them) from a Virtual Vancouver and a Rodeo of Ripostes from Calgary. At least, I shall miss the growing heatwave (G8 on the Ruction Scale) predicted for the UK, and especially for poor-old Scotland. Gordon Browns all round.

[And a special message for dear George 'Savonarola' Monbiot (for it is he): "I'm flying three times to get to a very special wedding. So there! Go and put your kettle on."]

In the meantime, until I report from Gastown, do read this splendid essay by Thomas R. DeGregori on: 'Magic vs. Modernity' (June 18), over at the ever-stimulating Butterflies and Wheels.

Philip, honk, honk... some lovely Albertan geese honking and cackling here: 'Canada Goose (Branta canadensis)'. Do take a gander.
