Logical Meltdown

Geoscientist 21.04 May 2011 As our feature this month neatly illustrates, sources of energy – especially new or unfamiliar ones – can also become sources of endless angst in an age that takes power for granted and is unaware of the far greater evil that is not having enough of it.

Poor summer

Ted Nield reflects on the need for scientific comment – no matter what.  Geoscientist 17.11 November 2007 The bright sun was extinguish’d and the stars Did wander darkling in the eternal space, Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air; Morn came and went – and came, and brought no day… So wrote Lord Byron in his p...

Love for shale

The House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee published its report on shale gas last night, concluding that fears over the safety of shale gas exploration in the UK are largely unfounded.   24 May 2011 ‘There has been a lot of hot air recently about the dangers of shale gas drilling’ said Committee Chair Tim Yeo. ‘Our inquiry found no evidence to support the...

Learned society or populist movement?

Dear Editor, I, and perhaps and a significant portion of the Geological Society of London, do not wish to join Martin Lack’s faux science bandwagon (Join the decarbonisation bandwagon, Geoscientist 29 (3), 9, April 2019), nor wish him to use the GSL to promote baseless, alarmist Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) thinking that it is less than 12 years to the 6th mass extinction event. This i...

Stability is not an Option

David A. L. Jenkins, Chartwood Resources Ltd Current concerns are focused on the projected magnitude and the rate of warming during the 21st century, which is ascribed to the increase in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere consequent on mankind’s combustion of carbon based fuels. There is a high degree of uncertainty in these projections, related to the expectations for economic growth and ...

Scientific appraisal, not scaremongering

Dear Editor, Has the Geological Society finally given up science in favour of propaganda? It would certainly seem so from April’s Soapbox (Join the decarbonisation bandwagon, Geoscientist 29 (3), 9, April 2019) where Martin Lack is permitted to make the case for decarbonisation by a mixture of unsubstantiated hearsay, hyperbole and innuendo. To take a couple of examples: Martin claims tha...
