A Precaution Primer
by Nancy Myers, Carolyn Raffensperger
A Precaution Primer, by Nancy Myers and Carolyn Raffensperger. The precautionary principle, or the idea of "forecaring," gives us a way to change our behavior, personally and collectively. It reminds us to acknowledge our mistakes, admit our ignorance, and act with foresight and caution to prevent damage. It also removes the barriers to that kind of precautionary action.

by Jerry Mander
In the US, television is the main thing people do. It's replaced community life, family life, culture. It has replaced the environment.
