Re: The logical next step is the two-dimensional risk rating approach
Our colour system is wrong way round. We've made the highest energy colour the "safest"; and the lowest energy wavelength, the most dangerous. So if something is serious I have to go, "Boss, this one is infra-red." Or "Boss, this one is radio waves."
But if we matched danger with energy then I'd always have the option of going "Boss, this is ultraviolet." Or "Boss, this one will vaporise half your fucking face."
