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.

"Open Sesame" on the limitations of wind power.....

Don't miss this excellent little article in the latest issue of the Open University magazine, Sesame (Spring 2006, Issue 229, pp. 18-19): 'Running on empty?' [.pdf: scroll down to article, and look at the second piece by Peter Bennett]:
"Can alternative sources such as windfarms supply all our future energy needs? OU student Peter Bennett, a chartered mechanical engineer, says that as a result of studying of the OU's T206 Energy for a sustainable future, he believes, reluctantly, the answer is - no."

Philip, now I always knew that the OU is one of our better Universities (and not just because 'She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed' teaches for it).
