Welcome to Alert Not Alarmed
Risk communication is the study of why people get upset about some risk, but not others. From the 1960s onwards, academics started building up a whole pile of evidence showings that the things people worry most about are not necessarily the things most likely to kill them. Human perception of, and reactions to, risk tends to be shaped more by emotions and values than scientific or statistical rationalisation.
