Environmental issues beat nuclear annihilation as the source of most concern among South Koreans in a study conducted by the government
Living next to an erratic, nuclear-armed North Korea is apparently not the most distressing aspect of life in South Korea, according to a new study. That distinction goes to air pollution, ranked number one in a national survey.
The spectre of North Korea’s nuclear programme ranked fifth, after economic stagnation, the South’s ageing population and water pollution. Only natural disasters were of less concern in the study conducted by the government-affiliated Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs.
