  1. Technological disasters :towards a preventive strategy : a review.

    Article - En anglais

    Technological or man-made disasters are a growth industry.

    Widely publicized industrial disasters like those in Bhopal and Chernobyl are only the tip of the iceberg of human and environmental risk from technological development.

    Other less well publicized disasters, including the contamination of food, water and air, have affected millions of people.

    The « slow » technological disasters - like air pollution, pesticides, radiation, lead, asbestos and other industrial hazards - also compromise human intellectual, behavioural and physical development.
