Title in Portuguese
Estudo comparado das percepções de risco nuclear e ambiental
Keywords in Portuguese
percepção de risco
risco ambiental
risco nuclear
Abstract in Portuguese
Com a necessidade de novas formas de produção de energia para conter a crise ambiental e o aquecimento global, novas tecnologias têm sido estudadas e a energia nuclear foi apontada como uma das saídas para a produção de energia limpa. O estudo do risco está diretamente relacionado ao estudo de sua percepção, que determina a maneira de agir do ser humano e, portanto influencia na aplicação de novas tecnologias, uma vez que o reconhecimento de algo como perigoso é determinado por fatores sócio históricos. Este estudo teve como objetivo comparar as percepções de risco nuclear e ambiental, em um grupo de estudantes universitários, com a aplicação de uma pesquisa, no período de 31 de março a 31 de maio de 2010, contendo: imagens de fatos históricos para serem nomeados; estruturação de uma escala de risco para determinadas atividades; e um questionário sobre riscos e benefícios relacionados ao tema da pesquisa. A análise dos resultados evidenciou uma diminuição da percepção do risco nuclear em relação ao risco ambiental na população estudada.
