Summary
This volume addresses a wide range of issues pertaining to the presence of risk in environmental policy. Topics include individual perceptions of risk, the valuation of environmental risks, the reporting and discussion of risks in the media, alternative government roles in addressing environmental risks, and examples of several public policy issues involving risks C biotechnology, hazardous waste facilities, and occupational hazards. These issues are viewed in the context of collective perceptions of entitlements that determine individual and group exposures to environmental risks. The book includes contributions from leading scholars in the field of risk and uncertainty across a number of disciplines including: Howard Kunreuther (decision sciences), Lola Lopes (psychology), V. Kerry Smith (environmental economics), and W. Kip Viscusi (risk and uncertainty)
