Sorry for dropping off like this but I was working on a 100 plus page White Paper on RISK COMMUNICATION. It will be surfacing soon.
In addition, I thought you might want to visit our web pages not that they are up. One is associated wit the NIRT grant (http://communication.chass.ncsu.edu/nirt/Home.html) and the other with the project I am working on at NCSU (http://communication.chass.ncsu.edu/pcost/index.html) .In addition, we did a report on ALTERNATIVE ENERGY AND NANOTECHNOLOGY. It was designed for the thousands of high school students who are interscholastic debaters. Next year, they are debating US policy toward alternative energy. It can be found and downloaded for free at: (http://communication.chass.ncsu.edu/pcost/Nanotechnology%20and%20Alternative%20Energy.pdf)

Gardner, Dan, Risk: The Science and Politics of Fear (
Briscoe, Simon & Hugh Aldersley-Williams, Panicology: What Are You Afraid Of? Two Statisticians Explain What's Worth Worrying About (and What's Not) in the 21st Century (
