For outdated and new experiences in selection making and danger research, this publication may still stand at tlle watershed. reports of clash solution and public coverage would certainly now need to take account of the version research supplied by way of the IIASA staff, and plenty of issues are usually not an identical back. it is a document of inquiries into the siting of liquefied power fuel (LEG) amenities within the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands, the uk, and the us. the hazards of transporting this hugely flamable stuff, and the industrial merits of having the ability to carry a traditional strength resource from one part of the globe to the opposite, retaining it, and piping it out as wanted, make LEG a version case for learning the general public reaction to risky expertise. the hazards of LEG are vary­ ent from these of nuclear energy, for example, the place the reaction too usually turns into entangled with the terror of nuclear conflict. the risks of LEG contain unco~trollable explosions, instead of insidious contami­ kingdom. however the measure of dangerousness is especially a lot of an identical order as that of nuclear energy, and is not less than as tricky to evaluate. In 4 varied nations the constitutional techniques keen on acquiring approval of nuclear or LEG amenities are on list. The 4 case histories listed here are a version for comparative examine of clash resolu­ tion. The interval over which the negotiations constructed is far the same.
