Unpredictability and resistance

If you, dear Rupert's Reader, want to check out what I argue to be the in-principle limited predictability of human behaviour, based on 'reflexive' considerations, then you could do worse than to look at my 'There is no such thing as a social science'. But more directly relevant, in that it specifically discusses the environmental case (which my book does not) is the series of brilliant papers in this area by Larry Lohmann: for instance, http://www.thecornerhouse.org.uk/resource/whose-voice-speaking ,
