If you read the linked series of posts you'll find really thought-provoking stuff for people interested in climate-related policy:
"First, if we manage widespread U.S. adoption of solar it will be a pyrrhic victory unless it is also adopted by India, China, and the rest of the developing world. Second, the downward march of solar energy prices is the single most important factor for mitigating global warming."

As a researcher with the Good Judgment Project https://goodjudgmentproject.com/ this is right up my alley.  I think there is room for improving prediction which can be used in planning, but I think you (and perhaps Perrow) are giving short shrift to decentralized approaches... the government's first priority should be aiming to avoid subsidizing risk-taking.  Because the government cannot politically precommit not to rescue people from their mistakes, they must instead force people to buy insurance.  The cost of the insurance will help deter people and companies from excessive the risk-taking.

Help me find data on car accidents!  The key thing I want is number of accidents by day for recent years.  Any leads?
