Government attempts to keep air pollution information secret

Green (Living) Review

2011: A freedom of information tribunal is being urged by environmental campaigners to reject Government attempts to keep secret sections of ministerial briefing papers on air pollution in London. 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.

Is Google Docs safe for backing up confidential information?

Green (Living) Review

By Michael Smith (Veshengro) The short answer here, I would say, must be an emphatic NO, and especially with regards to any sensitive information, and therefore I would suggest that no one would place any tax records or anything of such a similar nature. Therefore, personally, I wouldn’t put confidential information on Google Docs in any way, shape or form.

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?

"Accounting for heterogeneity in behavioural responses to health-risk information treatments"

Environmental Economics

Huth, Journal of Environmental Economics and Policy, Vol 5, No 3, Pages: 283-297: Traditional revealed and stated preference models consider a typical individual's behavioural responses to various policy-based information treatments. However, as behavioural responses to information treatments can vary across respondents, we develop a latent class analysis with covariates to examine unobserved heterogeneity responses to health-risk information treatments.

Freedom of Information and Secrecy in Governments

Green (Living) Review

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.
