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.

It's time to land on that 'Home Planet' again.....

Our 10th Series (how tempus fugit, as it says on Rochdale Townhall Clock) of the critical environmental programme, 'Home Planet', begins today on BBC Radio 4 at 15.00 pm GMT. The Series then runs for 12 more Tuesdays into April, and, on this occasion, will include some Gardeners' Question Time-type 'out-and-about' slots. These should be fun.

If you are in the UK, the programme is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 every Tuesday afternoon at 15.02 GMT, directly after the brief news summary. If you are outside the UK, you may listen to it, online, via the BBC 'Home Planet' Web Page:

(a) on the day in question at 15.02 BST, choose the 'Listen Live' button; or, (b) for one week after the first broadcast, choose the 'Listen Again' button; or, (c) after one whole week, select the relevant date under 'Previous Programmes'.

This first week's topics include Stotty et al. on: a big discussion of LNG; breathing and CO2; groundwater and arsenic; efficient retail heating; and quick comments on James Lovelock's Independent 'gloomings' of yesterday.

I do hope you enjoy it.

Philip, glad to be back wittering away with his colleagues. Lunch - boy, I'm slow today. More coffee needed!
