Scientists’s efforts to influence public opinion have limited effect according to study co-authored by Idaho State University Professor Carlisle
Scientists' efforts to influence public opinion have a limited effect, according to a study published this month that was co-authored by Idaho State University Assistant Professor of Political Science Juliet Carlisle.
The study also notes that more people are likely to believe scientific studies claiming that oil drilling is riskier, not safer, than was previously thought, according to a new study of attitudes in California.
The study "The Public’s Trust in Scientific Claims Regarding Offshore Oil Drilling" appeared in the journal Public Understanding of Science published by SAGE. It was co-authored by Jessica Feezell and Eric Smith, both from the University of California, Santa Barbara, together with Kristy E.H. Michaud from California State University, Northridge and Los Angeles media consultant Leeanna Smith. The authors think that prior beliefs may turn out to play a critical role in many policy disputes, muting the influence of scientific studies. (more…)
