Don't know what his official capacity is, but in the circles of advocates 
for use of the precautionary principal in environmental policy he is 
generally considered to be the reigning high priest of reductionist risk 
assessment philosophy (aka see no degredation, hear no degradation, speak 
no degradation, and forcast no degradation - so party on dudes!) and an 
all-around piece of work.

He's the sort of guy who would argue that one should not evacuate a room 
that is on fire until you "prove" that it is on fire and definitively 
establish the cause of the fire.  Of course by then ...
