The future of regions in Sweden.
I participated in a conference about the future of the regions in Sweden. The conference took place up in Åre were the apine world championship tokk place last year. Amongst other things also the climate changes were discussed. There was the “easy” economic solution proposed from a professor in economics, of course. We should put our money in the developing countries were it is a better pay off in the emission of green house gases, and there ought to be a global CO2 tax, and it is no use to do so much either for the individual person or a municipality in Sweden. That was his message and it was supported by a doctor in technician issues. Some academic people quite often think they are always right….

I talked about a project we do in Karlstad, were people who wants to reduce their environmental emissions etc, with advices and support. We have over 100 families who participate in the project. But, according the “economic” view, this sort of projects is not so necessary to perform. Read more about the project on the link;
