Interpreting the Precautionary Principle by Timothy O'Riordan

Book Description

Viewed from the perspective of environmental management, this study describes the implications and applications of the precautionary principle - a theory of avoiding risk even when its likelihood seems remote. This principle has been employed in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the North Atlantic Convention, yet it is not widely understood. This study examines the history and context of the principle, and its applications to law, governmental policies, business and investment, scientific research and international relations.

Ecotaxation by Timothy O'Riordan Ecotaxation, Hardback (January 1997)

Ecotaxation covers two distinct ideas. It has largely been associated with the 'polluter pays' principle, in the form of correctional charges imposed on activities which have a demonstrably damaging effect on the quality of life or the environment. The other involves an ambitious policy shift. This title explores the history of both ideas.
