A lot of interest in this comment. So let me lay out a framework for assessing risk in general and how it relates to Covid so we have a more nuanced understanding of “risk” and risk mitigation.

3 things can determine risk:

2/ Looking to lessons learned in wilderness education and mountaineering, risk can be understood as a combination of these 3 factors. And we have varying control over each of them in different settings. We do this all day long but don’t consciously think about it.

3/ In simple terms, P (probability) is just how likely is something to happen?

S (severity) is how bad would it be?

T (time) is how long you are at risk/exposed to the hazard.

Unpacking this from just “risk” helps tremendously with thinking about Covid.

Item #2 for building back better

The covid crisis must be used to accelerate the transition to an electric, zero-carbon economy, to reduce climate tail risk.
This includes:

(a) investments in renewable energy (and maybe nuclear, if it can be made fast and safe) for powering the industry;

(b) electrification of trains, trucks, public transport, and cars; and
(c) investments to improve true sustainability of farming, food manufacture, housing, and commercial real estate.
