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.

Quote of the Day.....

The quote of the day comes from a fine piece by Matthew Parris writing in today's The Times (June 4):
"Shame in the success of our species, dislike of our own footprint on the planet, is the great blasphemy of the green movement."

To read the full comment, 'We can decide if the forest will grow back over our footprints', visit The Times online.

Philip, now to imprint my own footprint and to mow that lush lawn before the rain descends. And, you bunnies out there, I'm very, very green - I use an old Edwardian-style handmower. I just love the click, click, clickety clack of its whirring blades. Daisy chains all round.
