How Might the Precautionary Principle be Applied to the Environmental and Occupational Health Implications of New Energy Technologies?

February 1, 2008 - 12:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

The reason that the "precautionary principle" is so hard to define is that it is really several different corrolaries of basic ethical duties to avoid harm and respect autonomy. I will describe what these are and how they might be operationalized practically with a particular attention to how this might be built into LBL's new initatives on alternative energy sources. (This is a modification of a talk recently presented in Bologna.)
