Hi All,

A while ago Nancy sent around an interesting paper by John Downer from Bristol University.
The paper looks at how people defend their own use of quantitative risk assessment in the wake
of disasters which appear to present counter-evidence to the appropriateness of QRA.

It's a great paper, which I recommend reading in its entirety. John agreed to be interviewed for the latest DisasterCast. You can download it as a podcast or listen directly from the website.
