Obsessions with the Unknown - Dr Bill Durodié
Dr Bill Durodié (Resilience Centre, Cranfield University). When former US Secretary of State for Defence, Donald Rumsfeld, warned of the dangers lurking within the 'unknown unknowns' at a press conference in 2002, he was using an increasingly common argument - widely advocated by environmental campaigners before him - that the risks we should really worry about are those that we don't even know we know nothing about.
