Surveys and statistics aren’t always easy to interpret. Here’s one example:
When the Swedish SOM Institute recently presented their annual survey about what Swedes think about different things in society, the things that most people felt concerned by were
1. Environmental degradation
2. Climate change
3. The sea environment
After that come organized crime, unemployment and widespread corruption.
Conclusion: Swedes are worried about climate change and the environment.
But – on the list of today’s biggest problems in society, the environment isn’t to be found anywhere near the top. What does this mean?
