About this book

The author recommends a simple yet profound alternative to 'risk assessment': 'alternatives assessment'. Instead of asking how much of a hazardous activity is safe (which translates into how much damage the environment can tolerate), alternatives assessment asks how we can avoid or minimize damage while achieving society's goals.

People who want to leave a healthier planet for our children will find Dr. O'Brien's book an invaluable resource, a ray of hope, and a call to action. --Bern Johnson, Executive Director, U. S.
