New Studies Present Models and Strategies for Creating a More Resilient Power System

Due to the complex interdependencies that exist between the electricity sector and all other critical infrastructures, disruption in the electric power sector can adversely affect our national security, public health, and the environment, and have adverse socio-economic impacts on our society. Without the ability to mitigate extreme weather, we must address these threats and their effects head-on. These risks will be examined during several presentations at the 2017 Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meeting.

Society for Risk Analysis Explores Decision Making Strategies Regarding U.S. National Security

As world leaders confront old and new global security problems, they can use this understanding to face problems while also taking into account cognitive and behavioral shortcomings that affect their decision-making. Two papers presented at the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meeting will explore decision-making related to national security interests. The symposium, U.S. National Security Interests and Transnational Security Decision Making, will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 10:30 a.m. -12 p.m. at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.

The Society for Risk Analysis Presents Research Solidifying the Need for Reformed Climate Policies

Four studies presented at the 2017 Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meeting will conduct a critical review of approaches scientists are using to characterize the impacts of climate change and assess the resulting economic damages. Ultimately, these researchers conclude that the current state of climate policy needs to be revaluated based on most recent research. The presentations will take place during the Modeling the Economic Aspects of Climate Change: A Critical Review of the State of the Science Symposium on Monday, Dec. 11, from 1:30-3 p.m. at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.

Risk Analysis and Emergency Management Vital to Cultural Preservation

As part of a symposium presented by the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Applied Risk Management Specialty Group, five studies on cultural property risk analysis will be presented to help decision-makers from museums and other institutions ensure proper protocols are in place to preserve valuable cultural property. These include proper risk analysis models and emergency management plans in the face of environmental risks, chemical and physical degradation and armed conflict.

Aging Water Systems Nationwide Pose Threats to Health

Legionnaires disease outbreaks in New York City and toxic levels of lead in Flint, Michigan have raised questions about how to manage risks in aging water systems. Multiple studies assessing the risk of opportunistic pathogens in water systems and the institutional infrastructure failures that led to the Flint water crisis will be discussed at the 2017 Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meeting.

The “Healthier” Version of Smoking is More Harmful to Youthful Users Than It Seems

There is a general perception among the public that e-cigarettes or vaping products are safer than conventional cigarettes. While smoking has fallen significantly, public health questions arise about vaping, especially about youth usage and other vulnerable populations. New research presented at the 2017 Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Conference suggests a link between VPN use, now a $3.5 billion industry, and neurotoxicity, immune cell suppression, and cardiovascular disease.

The Society for Risk Analysis Presents New Research on Who Really Benefits from Energy Efficient Manufacturing

Regulators claim that the value of the energy savings to consumers exceeds the incremental costs to manufacturers for delivering greater energy efficiency. This energy paradox challenges fundamental notions of how markets work. Four studies presented at the 2017 Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meeting will present new evidence relating to this paradox.

Electronic Cigarettes Increasing in Popularity and Acceptability as Perception of Health Risks Remains Low

Recently many college campuses around the country have banned the use of vaping nicotine products (VPNs) and e-cigarettes. A new study published in Risk Analysis: An International Journal found that people’s opinions of public vaping, are heavily influenced by what they see around them, how risky they think it is and what they think about addiction.

New Study Finds Properly Cooked Pork Chops Still Contain Threat of Listeria and Salmonella for Consumers

If you are eating leftover pork chops that have not been cooked well-done, you’re putting yourself at risk for Salmonella and Listeria exposure. While many individuals prefer to consume their pork medium, a new study published in Risk Analysis: An International Journal revealed that cooking pork chops to an acceptable temperature does not completely eliminate pathogens, providing these cells with the opportunity to multiply during storage and harm consumers.

New Study Reveals Journalists Have a Hand in Controlling Public Engagement with Climate Change

Could fear and hope hold the key to building support for public climate change policies? News articles that stir these emotions could influence support for regulations meant to curb climate change, according to a new study published in the journal Risk Analysis: An International Journal.
