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.

Dispelling those environmentalist myths.....

I thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of your 'EnviroSpin' host speaking at the latest Adam Smith Institute ISOS Conference held at the Tate Britain last week: "...students are pictured above, listening to Prof Philip Stott dispel some environmental myths"... Just so.

It proved to be a most lively and rewarding day, and the students were excellent. Other speakers included: the Shadow Chancellor, George Osborne, MP; Adam Boulton, Political Editor of Sky News; the author and journalist, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown; Andrew Haldenby of 'Reform'; the Economist editor, Bill Emmott; Tony Gilland of 'The Institute of Ideas'; and Madsen Pirie, the President of The Adam Smith Institute.

The theme was 'The Changing Landscape of Politics and Economics', and I agree it "... was a first class seminar."

Philip, always enjoying talking to the younger generation. Keeps one sharp and on one's toes. Lunch, mind you, does the same - so I'm off for mine. Cheers.
