“Initially. a joint initiative combining water management districts in North Dakota and Minnesota, D-Minn. ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee has been pushing to have the Red River Basin named as one of eight designated priority areas which would place it at the eligibility forefront for conservation funding available through the farm billThat designation is expected this spring said Keith Weston Red River Basin coordinator for the US Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service“That’ll definitely set the wheels in motion” he saidIf the Red River Valley is named as one of the priority areas it can submit proposals for funding from a pool of money that will total $500 million over the farm bill’s five-year period as well as another $120 million or more each year under various wetland or grassland easement programs Weston saidThe retention authority will submit proposals by the end of September To qualify for federal funds each project also must have matching funds from state and local partners Meanwhile each local water district on both sides of the Red River is working on its own project lists that will be compiled by the retention authority which has the role of assembling a comprehensive planThe retention authority is composed of the collective groups of local water resource boards on both sides of the Red River Minnesota’s Red River Watershed Management Board and North Dakota’s Red River Joint Water Resource DistrictReducing flows on the Red River 20 percent in a 1997-level flood would reduce the crest at Fargo-Moorhead by 2 feet water officials have saidBut doing that would require impounding 1 million acre-feet of water below the border with Canada distributed among many projects throughout the basinThe co-chairmen of the Red River Retention Authority’s board said the group has achieved real progress in identifying potential project sites and the results will become apparentAt the local level retention projects are moving forward both in Minnesota and North Dakota officials saidExamples in the southern valley include the Red Path Retention Project in Minnesota’s Bois de Sioux watershed and a planned “dry dam” on the upper Maple River in North Dakota a smaller version of the Maple River Dam which holds water temporarily during severe floodsA draft study for the Red River Basin Commission an advisory and study group that strives for reaching water management consensus in the basin found that the 20 percent reduction goal generally could be met if 96 impoundment sites are developed collectively comprising 559200 acre-feetBut each project would have to gain support from local landowners who will want to see local benefits officials said“All we need is cooperation from landowners and a ton of money and we’re good to go” said John Finney co-chairman of the Red River Retention Authority board representing Minnesota watersheds“Things are going to happen they really are” he addedGary Thompson the authority board co-chairman representing North Dakota water resource districts said the group is moving forward now that important studies have been completed“It’s going to take a lot of time and effort” Thompson said adding that officials want to reach agreements with landowners rather than force projects “It comes down to the grass roots” he saidImagine picking up the morning newspaper and feeling moral outrage at the latest action taken by the opposing political party Or turning the page and seeing people around the world suffering famine and heartbreak and flinching with empathy at their pain One of the most fundamental tasks we have as social creatures is to figure out whom we can trust whom we should help and who means us harm These are questions that are central to morality in everyday life In our work we use tools from psychology to better understand these gut-level moral reactions that matter for everyday life My research focuses on two facets of morality: moral judgments and empathy for the pain of others Below I discuss two new behavioral measures I have developed with my colleagues to capture these moral sentiments Why not just ask people One way to get a sense for peoples moral beliefs is to simply ask them A researcher could ask you to rate on a one-to-five scale how morally wrong is a particular action such as assaulting someone Or to report on how frequently you tend to have empathy for other people in everyday life One potential problem with asking people to self-report their reactions is that these reports can be influenced by a lot of factors especially when the topics are sensitive such as morality and empathy If people think their reputation is at stake they may be very good at reporting what they think others want to hear So sometimes self-reports will be useful but sometimes people edit these reports to give a good impression to others If you want to know who is likely to feel your pain and not make "you" feel the pain then relying on self-report although a good start may not always be enough A new measure of moral judgment Rather than asking people what they think is moral or how much empathy they feel our work attempts to assess peoples immediate spontaneous reactions before they have had much time to think at all In other words we examine how people behave to get a sense for their moral reactions For example consider the new task that my collaborators and I developed to measure peoples gut reactions that certain actions are morally wrong Gut reactions have been thought by many psychologists to play a powerful role in moral decision-making and behavior In this task people go through a series of trials In each trial they see two words flash one after the other These words are actions typically thought either to be morally wrong or morally neutral People are asked to judge whether the second words describe actions that are morally wrong while avoiding being influenced by the first words So for example in a particular trial people might see "murder" immediately followed by "baking" Their task is to judge whether "baking" is wrong while ignoring any influence of "murder" People are also not given much time to respond If they take longer than half a second to respond they get an annoying warning to "Please respond faster" This is meant to make sure people respond without thinking too much My collaborators and I find that people make a systematic pattern of mistakes When they see morally wrong actions such as "murder" come first they make mistaken moral judgments about the actions that come second: They are more likely to mistakenly judge neutral actions such as "baking" as morally wrong The idea here is that people are having a gut moral reaction to the words that come first which is shaping how they make moral judgments about the words that come second This effect described above happens even when people are intending for it not to So even if you are trying to stop that first word from influencing you it still does You might think does this connect to real-world morality After all responding quickly to words on a screen may not track the moral values we care about We find that people who show a stronger response on our task have features of a "moral personality" We correlated the effect on our morality task with peoples self-reported measures of morally relevant traits People who show a stronger response on our task are more likely to feel guilt when considering doing unethical actions They are more likely to indicate caring about being a moral person And they report fewer psychopathic tendencies such as callousness These associations are modest but suggest that were capturing something relevant to morality A new measure of empathy My collaborators and I have taken a similar approach to understanding empathy or the tendency to vicariously feel the pain of others Empathy research has often gone beyond self-report to use brain imaging or physiology as measures But these are often quite costly to implement and may not always provide a clear lens on social emotions We created a new empathy task thats very similar to the morality task except this time people see two images rather than two words The images depict hands being pierced with needles or brushed with Q-tips which are implements that are considered respectively painful and nonpainful by most people People are asked to judge whether the experiences of the second images are painful or not while avoiding being influenced by the first images As with the morality task people show a systematic and robust pattern of mistakes; when they see painful experiences (ie, I’m not suggesting that Muslim lives are worth less than Jewish ones.
