So in that sense you can see that we know the probability,

we know the consequences, and we can calculate the risks.

That's when we could then apply the Principle of Prevention.

When it comes to the Precautionary Principle on the other hand,

that will only be relevant if we don't know the probability, or

and we don't know the consequences.

So, there might be unknown probability x unknown effects.

An example could be, for instance, global warming.

We know that global warming is happening, it's very likely or it's likely,

and we know that the consequences are and will be very severe slash disasters.

But we are not able to calculate the exact risk quantitatively,

and that's why we talk about the Principle of Precaution and

not the Principle of Prevention.

So as a general rule of thumb, if you can calculate the risk quantitatively,

that's when you talk about the Principle of Prevention and

that's relevant to consider.

If we do not, if we're not able to calculate the risk quantitatively, that's

when you want your trigger considerations about using the Precautionary Principle.
