Climate Change: Why people don’t base decisions on facts

  • Feb 1 (Wed):  Robert De Saro of ERCo Energy Research presents: “How we think and how we are fooled over climate change issues:  Why people don’t base decisions on facts.  Understanding and addressing their decision criteria.”  Why is it that some people deny climate change despite overwhelming evidence?  There has been considerable work in understanding how people react to new information.  Some of it is determined by how we evolved, some on how the mind operates to act quickly and intuitively at one level and slowly and critically on another.  These two mind systems sometimes create conflict resulting in erroneous conclusions. These and other issues, including how to address them, will be explored.
