I think the precautionary principle is bad. It is a bad policy, it is bad science, it is bad epistemologically, and ultimately it is bad for humanity. I write a lot about the precautionary principle in Evolve.

Here is Don Boudreaux discussing the precautionary principle with a Cafe reader. It is an excellent read (and short) and includes a link to an excellent book on the subject.
