In the first surge of concern
for 'the environment', I contributed to supplements in the UK Press Gazette:
'Learning to live within our dwindling means' (1972) and
'Is this the best use of energy and land?' (1973).
In the 1970s I contributed frequent
columns to the US magazine
Environment. In 1974, in the Canadian
magazine Science Forum, I discussed Helping the public judge contentious issues involving science.
In 1980 I reflected on the history of technology - 'Why you should keep looking over your shoulder'. In 1981 I noted
the tenth anniversary of Friends of the Earth - 'The disposable misconception'. In 1982 I revisited the UN Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972.
February 1989 I surveyed the
government way with energy and environment. In November 1989
I talked to Oxford students about 'Environmental
Troublemaking'. In 1991 I wondered 'Are we throwing away the planet's future?'.
In 1992 I reflected on 'The commercialization of new technologies'.
Since 1998 I've contributed columns
