This book provides a toolkit for applying precautionary concepts to reshape environmental policies at all levels. Its compendium of regulatory options, detailed examples, wide-ranging case studies, and theoretical background provides both citizens and policymakers with the basis for acting on any issue in any situation-whether it's pesticide use at local schools or a new international regulatory system for chemicals.

Academic journal article Environmental Health Perspectives. Academic journal article Environmental Health Perspectives. As far as I can tell, although some of the contributors were trained in science, none is currently employed as a scientist. That's not really surprising in a book about policy, but working scientists do have a different perspective on things. Myers and Carolyn Raffensperger, ed. It is telling that this otherwise useful and informative overview of the principles and application of the precautionary principle would include a chapter entitled Answering the Critics. The problem is that the authors have overlooked the answering of questions raised by their allies and supporters. Recommend this journal.
