Environmental Risk Assessment
 

ERA is difficult because it should take into account all impacts, including global impacts.

However, it is easier to see the local impacts, especially if you or your family may be affected.

But it would not be very environmental if an ERA just confined itself to those impacts you can see.

Nevertheless, significance varies according to where you stand and what you can see.

The impact may be important in another country e.g.ill health cause by long-range air pollution/acid rain.

Yet it should be just as important and significant to us.

We expect the same consideration when roles are reversed e.g. We expected to be protected from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
