Abstract:
The author shows that the current use of the precautionary principle to justify policies is flawed and could be counterproductive because it ignores the possible calamities those very policies might simultaneously create or prolong. It develops a framework to evaluate policies for three contentious environmental policy issues facing humanity and shows that some of environmentalism's favourite policy prescriptions are in fact likely to do more harm than good.
