Árvai’s research clearly shows that education and decision support, aimed at the public and policy makers, is not the lost cause that many followers of the culture wars think it is
There’s an emerging body of research suggesting that how much people know about climate change is unrelated to how much they care about it, or how much support they’ll have for actions aimed at addressing it. This research argues that our feelings about climate change are instead a function of “cultural variables”, which work independently from knowledge. New research by Joe Árvai and colleagues from ETH Zürich suggest that this is in fact not the case. Much of the research comparing culture and knowledge misses the mark in terms of how both knowledge and culture are measured.

Designing 21 miles of shoreline protection using living shoreline products to attenuate wave energy, serving as a first line of defense for coastal marshes in the project area
The Louisiana coastline loses an average of more than 16 square miles of wetlands per year according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) is the single state entity with authority to develop, articulate, implement, and enforce a comprehensive coastal restoration and protection master plan to reduce hurricane storm surge flood impact, restore Louisiana’s bountiful natural resources, build land to protect critical energy infrastructure, and secure Louisiana’s coast now and for future generations.
Goldcorp’s Marlin mine ceased production on May 31, 2017 marking the end of more than a decade of strong community ties and sustainable mining practices. Located in the western highlands of Guatemala, in the municipality of San Miguel Ixtahuacan approximately 300 kilometers northwest of Guatemala City, Marlin began production in late 2005 and became a part of the Goldcorp portfolio with the acquisition of Glamis Gold in 2006. The mine operated as both an open pit and underground mine for 12 years, producing 2.3 million ounces of gold and 63 million ounces of silver.
HPE will be the first company to enable suppliers to set science-based GHG reduction targets in their own operations. Launched in May, the program will enable 80% of manufacturing suppliers, by spend, to reduce their own emissions in line with the targets that climate science says is necessary to prevent dangerous global warming. This effort seeks to avoid 100 million tons of emissions by 2025, equivalent to taking 21 million passenger vehicles off the road for one year.
