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.

Letter and Article of the Week.....

It's the cosmic rays wot done it! Recommended for your weekend reading (a real corrective to the usual 'global warming' hype):

Letter of the Week: 'Finally, an open-minded report on climate change' (The Ottawa Citizen, March 23).

Article of the Week: 'Cosmic rays set climate change on Earth, expert says. Scientist challenges greenhouse-gas theory' (Edmonton Journal, March 16):
"Stars, not greenhouse gases, are heating up the Earth.

So says prominent University of Ottawa science professor Jan Veizer..." (read on)

So the answer, as ever, lies in the stars! I always knew that 'global warming' was rather 'Pisces'.

Philip, pleased to see more open material being published in Canada. And Professor Veizer is a formidable scientist.
