Is more information welfare enhancing?

Environmental Economics

 Sharks are scary to many people.    New technologies, like drones, allow beach authorities to notify swimmers when sharks are nearby.    So when people are told that sharks are near shore, it changes behavior--even though the likelihood of a shark attack has not changed.    The only thing that has changed is the ability to see the sharks.    Are swimmers now better off?

The Volt Report - Informative Environmental News

Hug a Tree with Me

The Volt Report is an eco education resource site that consists of beneficial information on current alternative energy implementations and initiatives. The thought that eighty percent of the world’s energy usage comes from fossil fuels is staggering and disheartening, however, that number use to be a lot higher. Before alternative energy was seriously thought of, almost 100 percent of our energy consumption came from fossil fuels.

The ABA’s 50th Anniversary and Information: From Scarce to Abundant

10,000 Birds

What is apparent from the reprint, as well as other accounts of the ABA’s early years, is that the ABA was founded in large part to address information and communication shortcomings in the birding community. Thus, at that time, birding information was scarce and local, distributed, if at all, by individuals or rudimentary networks of birders. If anything, there is now an abundance of high-quality easily-accessible information for birders.

Eco Focused - Wonderful Source for Energy Efficiency Information 

Hug a Tree with Me

This blog is awesome; it consists of tons of informative and emotive articles on all subjects related to eco. It is no secret that energy is a huge part of our everyday lives; we come in contact with the stuff almost every second of the day. Energy warms us up, cools us down, helps us cook and lights up the darkness. So it is easy to say that energy is here to stay. The trouble with consuming all this energy though is the negative impact doing so has on the environment.

Freedom of Information and Secrecy in Governments

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Despite the fact that Britain now has, more or less, a Freedom of Information Law it is being flouted by all agencies of government, central and local. The secrecy that is going on and it appear to have gotten worse since the advent of the Freedom of Information Act and now, so that they don't have to disclose their misdeeds and shenanigans, or to have shred things in a hurry or wipe a disc, things are not even recorded in any way or form.

The Government's appeal against a previous ruling to make the information public was being heard on January 12 and 13, 2011. Why this should be so beats me but, apparently, the British public are too infantile as to understand such information.
