Lack of information on environmental issues

Other Names:
Inadequate data concerning environment

According to a 1999 report, Europeans claimed to be rather poorly informed about environmental questions. Most looked primarily to television for information, and somewhat less to the print media. While hardly one European out of four had confidence in the media in general when it came to environmental problems, one in two trusted environmental protection bodies. However, some 60% of those polled admitted they made no particular effort to keep themselves informed of environmental issues.
