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.

Quotes of the Day.....

First, wise words from India:
"Removal of poverty is the greater immediate imperative" than global warming, Prodipto Ghosh, Secretary of India's Environment Ministry, yesterday before the 1,600 delegates at the 189-nation U.N. climate meeting - er, talking shop.

Secondly, no scientific evidence for significant sea-level change in the UK:
Evidence from a new study [.pdf] published in the latest issue of the Journal of Coastal Research indicates that relatively little change in shoreline position has occurred since World War II. See for a summary and some good quotes: 'English coast stays abreast of possible perils of global warming' (Newswise, May 16).

When will the 'global warming' hysteria in the UK catch up with reality?

Philip, off for lunch in the garden, and to read yet more about the EU's carbon-trading farce. When will the madness stop?
