The Precautionary Principle in Environmental Science

Postby ShawnMiller » Sat Sep 05, 2015 5:22 pm

Just because the precautionary principle has a definition -- namely, the principle that the introduction of a new product or process whose ultimate effects are disputed or unknown should be resisted. It has mainly been used to prohibit the importation of genetically modified organisms and food -- shouldn't lead us to believe that there isn't anything interesting to say about it or its application. E.g.

  • Kriebel, David, Joel Tickner, Paul Epstein, John Lemons, Richard Levins, Edward L. Loechler, Margaret Quinn, Ruthann Rudel, Ted Schettler, and Michael Stoto. "The precautionary principle in environmental science." Environmental health perspectives 109, no. 9 (2001): 871.
