Measuring Irrationality

November 30, 2014 Columns, Sustainable Planet Comments Off on Measuring Irrationality

“Irrational is a strong word, which connotes impulsivity, emotionality, and a stubborn resistance to reasonable argument.” Daniel Kahneman.

I admire the progress cognitive psychology and neuroscience has made in unraveling the workings of our brains. Since I cannot understand much of neuroscience, I make do with the cognitive psychology. A lot has been written about the irrationality of conservative Republicans especially in regard to climate science denial. Another new paper [1] by researchers at Duke University, Troy Campbell and Aaron Kay (CK), addresses this timely topic. Their hypothesis is that solution aversion motivates Republicans to deny science when the solutions contradict their laissez-faire free market ideology. They cite other research and only claim that solution aversion is part of the explanation. They accept the validity of other hypotheses such as the impact of conservative media or that “Republican’s cognitions are more motivated and threatened by negative information.” … Continue Reading

Dream of a Good Death

By Eric Werling

I’m drawn to a Thursday evening performance of a folk operetta and Civil War history lesson, “Dream of a Good Death” by Clark Hansbarger and the Bitter Liberals, which I read about in the Loudoun News. I leave work early, commute home from D.C. in time to kiss my wife goodnight and hop back in the truck for the 8:00 p.m. show at Franklin Park. I sit in the theater a few minutes before the show, alone in the small crowd, a little self-conscious because I don’t normally go to shows alone. But soon those thoughts are replaced with wonder. We live in a small Virginia town – with a name like Purcellville, it is guaranteed to remain a small town forever. But I have just discovered that Purcellville has a theater worthy of a small city! They completed this place seven years ago. Why haven’t I been here before? … Continue Reading

Event and Open House–Goose Creek Friends Meeting: Commemorating the Peace Community in the Midst of the Civil War

November 20, 2014 News, Our Towns Comments Off on Event and Open House–Goose Creek Friends Meeting: Commemorating the Peace Community in the Midst of the Civil War

The public is invited to an Open House at Goose Creek Meeting in Lincoln, to help dedicate a commemorative sign installed on the Meeting’s property. The Goose Creek Friends (Quakers) worked with the Virginia Civil War Trails, Sesquicentennial Committee, Mosby Heritage Area Association, and Visit Loudoun to design a sign which tells visitors about the Burning Raid that took place around Lincoln in early December 1864. It will also describe Goose Creek’s Quaker peace testimony at the time of the Burning Raid and now.

Activities on the 6th will open with First Day School students presenting a depiction of the Meeting’s history, originally presented by Asa Moore Janney in 1951. This will be followed by the dedication, in which all the people who helped with the sign will be introduced. The Meeting House will be open for simple refreshments and to hear more about the history of our present Meeting House, built in 1818. Our historic 1816 school house, Oakdale School, will be open also. … Continue Reading

2 Degrees of Trouble

November 20, 2014 Columns, Sustainable Planet Comments Off on 2 Degrees of Trouble

“There are constant assaults on the natural environment, the result of unbridled consumerism, and this will have serious consequences for the world economy,” Pope Francis.

We have seen that the surface temperature is not just increasing but accelerating [1]. To do this we used the Cowtan and Way data set which includes the Polar Regions. As it turns out all of the official temperature records ignore these areas in addition to a large part of Africa and a bit of Brazil as shown in Figure 1 because no temperature records existed for these regions going back to 1880. The area that is included represents most of the Earth surface and is therefore considered an accurate representation of the entire planet’s surface when determining long term climate trends. As we’ve seen the other data sets, ignoring the Polar Regions, show that the surface is continuing to warm at a constant rate [2] when natural variability is accounted for. All portrayals of a slowdown (stoppage, hiatus, pause) in the rate of surface warming leave an unexplained gap of instantaneous warming in 1998 which cannot be explained by any physical mechanism [3]. The denier argument that global warming has stopped is an extreme case where the gap is 0.25 degrees C or about a decade and a half of warming [1]. Thus the only conclusion which fits all the data, including the Polar Regions, and which is physically possible is that the surface warming is accelerating exponentially. This is also consistent with expectations. The fact that climate scientists continue to discover additional evidence of the radiation imbalance such as the accelerated warming of the oceans [4] makes our situation that much more tenuous. … Continue Reading
