Future babble : why expert predictions fail - and why we believe them anyway /

by Gardner, Dan.

Publisher: Carlton North, Vic. Scribe Publications 2010Description: xi, 305 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 287-292) and index.Summary: Future Babble examine why our brains yearn for certainty about the future, why we are attracted to those who predict it confidently, and why it's so easy for us to ignore the trail of outrageously wrong forecasts. In this fast-paced, example-packed, sometimes darkly hilarious book, journalist Dan Gardner shows how seminal research by UC Berkeley professor Philip Tetlock proved that pundits who are more famous are less accurate ? and the average expert is no more accurate than a flipped coin. Gardner also draws on current research in cognitive psychology, political science, and behavioral economics to discover something quite reassuring: The future is always uncertain, but the end is not always near.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Heatwaves : hotter, longer, more often /

by Steffen, Will et al.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Climate Council 2014Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 56-61Summary: This report sets out the facts about heatwaves and hot weather. We explore the observed changes to heatwaves in Australia-their severity, duration and timing-and place this in the context of increasing extreme heat around the world. The contribution of climate change to the Australia-wide and global trends in heatwaves is clear and compelling. The impacts of heatwaves are often under-the-radar compared to other extreme weather events, but they are widespread and serious, damaging human health, infrastructure and natural ecosystems; and decreasing workplace performance and agricultural productivity. The report concludes by outlining what needs to be done to slow, and eventually stabilize, the trend towards more severe and more frequent heatwaves. The report draws directly on the peer-reviewed scientific literature as well as on authoritative assessments, such as those of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).Availability: (1)
