Effect of linguistic framing and information provision on attitudes towards induced seismicity and seismicity regulation - News Summed Up

Effect of linguistic framing and information provision on attitudes towards induced seismicity and seismicity regulation


Our respondents provided a clear indication that they opposed changes to the UK induced seismicity limit. Table 1 Wave 1 survey: policy support across information conditions. Providing additional qualitative information, quantitative information, or both forms of information, led to no differences from the control group that received none of this information in wave 1 (see “Methods”). This raises the question of which factors did influence support for, or opposition to, policy change on induced seismicity. For the questions about seismicity from ‘deep geothermal operations’ or ‘quarry blasting’, induced seismicity was viewed as more negative when framed as an ‘earthquake’, as opposed to ‘micro-seismicity’ or a ‘tremor’ (Table 4).
