"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." -- John Adams
Professor John Adams of University College London, is a professor of geography and leading theorist on risk compensation and an environmentalist. His book Risk is an analysis of how humans assess and respond to perceived risks.

Adams spoke at the Shared Space conference held in Ipswich, UK in June, 2005, where in his talk titled "Risk Compensation versus the obedient automaton theory of human behaviour" he discussed how understanding risk compensation was essential to the understanding of why shared space principles work for the design of public spaces such as road layouts in towns.

He has also coined the term and written extensively on the phenomenon of hypermobility.

Adams has been critical of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and has praised "reputable scientists who react sceptically to the “hockey stick” peddled by Sir John Houghton and the IPCC." [1].
