Statistics Sweden news, sometimes needs to be interpreted.
I read in the newspaper that the Statistics Sweden released figures that the carbon dioxide emissions in the County of Varmland, were Karlstad is the residence city, has decreased the by 2 % per person during 2004. Immediately the newspapers asked people in town what they have done to reduce their contribution to the greenhouse gases. Taking for granted that the reduction was due to peoples behaviour.

The fact is that one big factory has shut down its production. The factory contributed with 3,5 % of the carbon dioxide emission in the county during 2001. I think the carbon dioxide emissions from transport- and energysector, actually could have has increased a little during 2004. It’s not easy to interpret the statistics.
