This evening is the on-line chat discussing/debating Prof. Michael D. 
Shapiro's statement in response to the use of the Precautionary Principle 
as a rallying tool against biotechnology.  Join in at 
http://summit.extropy.org and go to the "Chat."

"...a plausible precautionary principle would counsel us to take 
precautions in adopting any given current version of a precautionary 
principle." (Shapiro, 2004)
