Going Down the Wrong Rabbit Hole

This poignant article describes the life and death fight of BC's trades deadly fight against asbestos. In a chapter in my new book, I talk about the failure of governments to get out of evidence-based a priori decisions, such as asbestos, and banning cigarettes. We go down the rabbit hole and it is impossible to get out of it. There is a myriad of reasons why which I describe in the chapter entitled Going Down the Wrong Rabbit Hole. And there are ways of getting out of them now, especially with respect to climate change adaptation and mitigation. Let's act now.
