Sweden is a country well known for its engagement in environmental preservation. The pollution from industries and other activities is regulated by strict laws, many times stricter than for the rest of EU. In countries from the old eastern block, polluting coal plants and unsafe nuclear plants are used. At the same time the Swedish government chose to close this top modern Swedish nuclear plant and instead import “dirty energy” from abroad. By doing this they can say that we are using less nuclear energy in Sweden but the facts do not show the amount of pollution this causes since the energy is produced outside of our country.

It is just another political way of playing with figures to trick the people that we are aware of the environment in Sweden.
