Abstract: In this essay I explore possible connections between the rhetoric of time in debates over war and global warming. Utilizing and expanding upon Roger Stahl’s analysis of chronopolitical rhetoric in the context of post-industrial war, I argue that rhetorics of time in the global warming debate are not necessarily anti-democratic, and may function as a rhetorical resource to productively shift the global warming debate from technical scientific definitions to citizen engagement over solutions.

"How Citizens Integrate Information without Ideological Cues: Local Weather and Americans’ Beliefs about Global Warming" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, Apr 02, 2009 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-04-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p362968_index.html>

Abstract: Much of the recent research on mass public opinion has focused on identifying how messages with ideological cues affect individuals’ attitudes regarding politics. But citizens also receive politically relevant information—including facts about the state of the world and their own personal experiences—that does not come with an ideological label attached. Who uses this information, and to what extent? It is difficult to explore these questions using observational data, because individuals may be exposed to such information in a selective fashion, and self-reports of exposure may not be reliable. In this study, we identify one piece of information that is devoid of ideological content and to which Americans are exposed at random—their local weather—and show that it leads a significant share of the public to reassess its beliefs about the evidence for global warming. This effect is much stronger for the less educated and those with weak partisan ties, and virtually non-existent for the most educated and most partisan citizens. Our results suggest that when politically relevant information is conveyed without ideological cues, political sophistication may prohibit the integration of this information into political beliefs regardless of the direction of one’s predispositions.

"Face-to-face vs. Online Deliberation on the Global Warming & Stem Cell Issues" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, Apr 02, 2009 Online <PDF>. 2019-04-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p361881_index.html>

Abstract: Online deliberation is a relatively new phenomenon that allows people to discuss political issues with others of widely differing backgrounds and locations. Some studies have examined the attributes of those who participate in online deliberations, but less has been done to compare the quality of discussion between online and face-to-face deliberation. I am asking several questions, including: in which cases and under what conditions will people deliberate better? Do people deliberate better online or face-to-face? Do they deliberate better online when their real names are used or when their identity remains anonymous? One could imagine both ways leading to better online deliberation. In the first scenario, where real names are used, there may be a sense of responsibility and wanting to deliberate in a serious fashion. On the other hand, if one is anonymous, one may feel more comfortable expressing politically incorrect opinions or opinions that may be unpopular with the majority of discussants. Thus, a greater variety of opinions may enter into the deliberation. I am also interested in exploring how much people utilize media information in their deliberations and to what extent the media inform their discussions. Through an experiment, I plan to compare the quality of deliberation occurring between face-to-face groups with those that are anonymous online and accountable online.

Abstract: In addressing global strife on the planet, it is necessary to discuss the growing concern surrounding global warming and the documented impact it is having on societal change, race and ethnic cultures. Drawing from varied references, this presentation will review global warming from the natural scientific perspective and consider the relationship of climate change to changes in security and societal order. Looking at different impacts in different parts of the globe, it will establish a link between such changes as, among others, the status of decreasing water and precipitation on crop failure and resulting scarcity of food that can spawn governmental corruption, misuse of power and secession of security for its people. In such situations, it often becomes necessary for ethnic groups in various parts of the world to uproot family, leave traditional homes, abandon ethnic cultural mores and customs in the search for survival. While ignoring political controversy regarding global warming, and acknowledging the disagreement in the scientific community on cause and extrapolated effect of global warming, the presentation notes that community’s agreement in current changes in the natural order and the inevitable differences Man will be required to experience socially as well as physically in an effort to adjust in order to survive.
