As described in the introduction of my (draft) "Reply to 'Reply to Whitehead'" , I suspect that I have used the incorrect confidence intervals when analyzing the Desvousges, Mathews and Train (2015) data.

Reply to "Reply to Whitehead" by Desvousges, Mathews and Train: (1) Is the log-linear model meaningless?

Environmental Economics

  Desvousges, Mathews and Train (2020) rightly argue that (1) the sum of medians is not equal to the median of the sums and (2) the mean WTP estimates for each of their five scenarios are basically infinity (or in the millions of dollars when the data are estimated with a log-linear probit).

Reply to "Reply to Whitehead" by Desvousges, Mathews and Train: (2) What is the effect of negative WTP?

Environmental Economics

When dichotomous choice CVM data is of low quality, the measure of central tendancy is sensitive to assumptions. As I showed in a paper presented earlier this year (Landry and Whitehed 2020), with the highest quality data it makes no difference the WTP estimator that is used.

Setting the Record Straight on Oil Trains

Sightline Daily

Oil trains in the railyards, Everett, WA (10). Anderson (Used with permission) Editor’s note: The Seattle Times recently published a guest opinion regarding oil trains. On September 13, the Seattle Times published an opinion piece by Richard Berkowitz attacking, among other things, advocacy groups, communities worried about oil trains, and research published by Sightline Institute. That’s why some have taken to calling them “bomb trains.”.

Reply to "Reply to Whitehead" by Desvousges, Mathews and Train: Are the DMT (2015) data problems typical in other CVM studies?

Environmental Economics

In Whitehead (2020) I describe the problems in the DMT (2015) data. It is full of non-monotonicities, flat portions of bid curves and fat tails. A non-monotonicity is when the percentage of respondents in favor of a policy increases when the cost increases.

Huge Oil Train Explosion

Sightline Daily

Early yesterday morning an oil train in the province derailed causing an explosion with deadly results : Police spokesman Guy Lapointe said one person had died, and that toll would rise, but he declined to comment on media reports that anywhere between 40 and 80 people were missing. Sightline estimates that would require more than 10 loaded oil trains per day, roughly 72 per week, and nearly 3,800 each year. One hopes the grim news from Quebec is not a preview for the Northwest.
