ABSTRACT
On the advice of experts a large nuclear power program was introduced in Sweden and unanimously accepted by Parliament. Shortly afterwards nuclear power became a heavily politicized issue with the political parties engaged pro and con. The accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl also had a strong impact on the opinion formation, it now seems, however, that after twenty years public opinion is slowly changing in the direction of the dominant views among experts.
