Media reviews
'At a time when far too many people are still starry-eyed about the media's interest in covering the environment, The Daily Globe is a dose of harsh reality. It explains why most environment specialists have to spend their time reporting on disasters... rather than on the long-term developments that are shaping the future. I wish every senior editor would read it.' Alex Kirby, presenter, BBC Radio Four's Costing the Earth, former BBC environment correspondent.
