Making Better Environmental Decisions: An Alternative to Risk Assessment by Mary O'Brien

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Making Better Environmental Decisions: An Alternative to Risk Assessment For the past quarter century government and the private sector have relied heavily on risk assessment for making decisions allowing widespread environmental deterioration In this book Mary O Brien recommends a simple yet profound shift to another decision making technique alternatives assessment Instead of asking how much of a hazardous activity is safe which translates into how much damage the environment can tolerate alternatives assessment asks how we can avoid or minimize damage while achieving society s goals Alternatives assessment is a simple commonsense alternative to risk assessment It is based on the premise that it is not acceptable to damage human and nonhuman health or the environment if there are reasonable alternatives The approach calls for taking precautionary measures even if some cause and effect relationships have not been fully established scientifically The process must involve an examination of the full range of alternatives including no action at all Equally important it must be democratic and include potentially affected parties O Brien not only makes a persuasive case for alternative assessment she tells how to implement it She also shows how this technique has profound implications for public health for our stewardship of the environment and for a truly democratic government Published in association with the Environmental Research Foundation
