The effects of the tragedy at Japan’s Fukushima power plant will continue to reverberate over the upcoming weeks, months, and years. And, as the writers in this symposium explain, the consequences of the disaster go beyond Japan—like Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, Fukushima will reshape nuclear agendas and policies in countries around the world. In this Global Forum, leading experts reflect on the current and future implications of Fukushima for their own countries—the United States, the… Expand

Find the differences and the similarities: Relating perceived benefits, perceived costs and protected values to acceptance of five energy technologies
Few studies have investigated and compared the acceptance of different energy technologies, hence the need to examine a comprehensive model to explain their acceptance. Moreover, little is knownExpand
Act first, think later: The presence and absence of inferential planning in problem solving
TLDR
Two experiments are reported in which variants of a ball-weighing puzzle are explored, a problem that has only two steps, yet nonetheless yields performance consistent with a failure to plan. Expand

Risk, precaution and science: towards a more constructive policy debate
TLDR
From a guiding theme in European Commission environmental policy, the precautionary principle has become a general principle of EC law and has extended from the regulation of environmental, technological and health risks to the wider governance of science, innovation and trade. Expand
