    QUICK NEWS, September 4: How Social Media Can Also Settle Disputes; Huge Economic Benefits From Ocean Wind

    How Social Media Can Also Settle Disputes Can social media networks reduce political polarization on climate change? A study from the Annenberg School for Communication shows that exposure to anonymous, bipartisan social networks can lead liberals and conservatives to improve their forecasting of global-climate trends

    Michele Berger, 3 September 2018 (EurekAlert)

    “Social media networks, which often foster partisan antagonism, may also offer a solution to reducing political polarization…The Penn researchers asked 2,400 Republicans and Democrats to interpret recent climate-change data on Arctic sea-ice levels. Initially, nearly 40 percent of Republicans incorrectly interpreted the data, saying that Arctic sea-ice levels were increasing; 26 percent of Democrats made the same mistake. However, after participants interacted in anonymous social media networks--sharing opinions about the data and its meaning for future levels of Artic sea ice--88 percent of Republicans and 86 percent of Democrats correctly analyzed it, agreeing that sea-ice levels were dropping…[Republicans and Democrats who did not have social media interactions but] had several additional minutes to reflect on the climate data before updating their responses remained highly polarized and offered significantly less accurate forecasts…[When a picture of an elephant and a donkey were put at the bottom of a screen, and all the social learning effects disappeared…” click here for more

    Huge Economic Benefits From Ocean Wind Offshore Wind: Generating Economic Benefits On The East Coast; Harnessing offshore wind energy could triple the amount of wind energy jobs in five Atlantic coast states and add $3.6 billion to the economy according to a new economic analysis from E2

    August 30, 2018 (Environmental Entrepreneurs)

    “…[If South and North Carolina, Virginia, New Jersey, and New York each] added an average-sized offshore wind energy farm (352 MW) nearly 25,000 construction and operational jobs would be created up and down the eastern seaboard [and $3.6 billion would be added to the states’ economies, according to a new report]. The Department of Interior is developing lease sales for a strong pipeline of projects in this region—28 in total—which could equal 23,735 MW of new generating capacity, which if all developed would result in tens of thousands of more jobs…[The report also found a] one-month beach and fishing closure due to an oil spill off the coasts of New York, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina would cost over $2.7 billion in GDP and $1.3 billion in lost wages…” click here for more
