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.

A newspaper for grown ups.....

Yet again The Scotsman proves to be a far more grown up paper than its southern counterparts: 'Gleneagles: a Kyoto deal for grown-ups?' (The Scotsman, June 19). Just compare this comment with those linked in my blog below from The Guardian and The Observer, both full, as ever, of toddler foot-stamping and temper tantrums:
"...There are now thousands of facts backing up either side, but one political constant remains. Climate change is a politically-charged cause, close to the heart of anyone who dislikes free markets or the United States of America..."

Philip, Edinburgh still looking the best city in Britain - in more ways than one, it would seem. Only one castle in the sky. "A wee dram before luncheon, then?"
