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.

Go and debate at 'Crooked Timber'.....

Why not join in the great 'global warming' debate over at the 'Crooked Timber' blog - 90 comments already (10.20 am GMT)? Put a bit of stick about the 'global warming' faithful. The original posting is already receiving a roasting over at the 'Tim Blair' blog.

"Out of the crooked timber of humanity no straight thing was ever made" (Immanuel Kant, 1784) - in the case of 'global warming', never was a truer aphorism coined.

And here is your daily read: a great piece from Ian Plimer (Professor of Geology at the University of Adelaide and former Head of the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne): 'Global warming a damp squib' (The Australian, January 5).

Philip, already put in his pennyworth. Now for a mug of coffee - my timbers are shiveringly crooked this chill morning.
