Useful Jargon

Al Gore's movie increases Informational and Reputational Cascades based on Availability bias... Hey, don't complain to me, but to Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute. Calls for silencing skeptics, abandoning journalistic norms and decertifying weather girls in the name of "scientific truth" are all simply calls to increase Availability Bias. Doesn't sound as high-minded now, does it? In the Eighteenth Century they might have called it Humbug.
