Webcast of TNS Gallup Climate Barometer presentation

Posted in Politics on August 9th, 2010 by Daniel Rees – Comments Off


The cold winter has not affected the Norwegian population’s belief in climate change being man-made. However, The TNS Gallup Climate Barometer 1/2010 shows that the climate issue has lost some of its urgency.

My presentation of key results at Lillestrøm on June 11 is now available as a webcast – Check it out. Other speakers at the event were Erik Solheim, Minister of the Environment, and Dr David Barber from University of Manitoba.

Perceived importance of climate change

Posted in Politics on July 8th, 2009 by Daniel Rees – 2 Comments

How important is the issue of climate change to Norwegian voters? Yesterday I was interviewed by NRK Dagsnytt about this question based on my research on TNS Gallups Klimabarometer. In this survey climate change ranks fourth in perceived importance, behind education, healthcare and crime, but above the financial crisis, even though the interviews were carried out just after the government launched its economic rescue package in late January.

Listen to the interview here.

Nordmenn vil bidra i klimasaken

klimasegmenter

Folk flest er positive til å betale for fornybar energi som klimatiltak, men de er ikke fornøyd med norsk klimapolitikk. Det viser resultatene fra TNS Gallups Klimabarometer som jeg har vært prosjektleder for. I undersøkelsen har vi også delt inn befolkningen ut fra deres standpunkt i klimaspørsmålet. Modellen er basert på en kombinasjon av interesse og handling, og med utgangspunkt i tre grunnsyn: idealister, pragmatikere og likegyldige.

Resultatene viser at Norge er en nasjon av strebere. Hele 45 prosent av befolkningen havner i denne kategorien. De har et rasjonelt og praktisk forhold til klimaspørsmål, men føler likevel at de burde gjort mer. Idealistene, pragmatikerne og skeptikerne utgjør hver 15 prosent, mens de likegyldige er den minste kategorien med 5 prosent av befolkningen. 3 av 4 er dermed opptatt av klimaspørsmål og er klare for å handle.

Les hele min analyse av resultatene her.

Resultatene ble presentert på Felix konferansesenter 3. juni, med blant annet olje- og energiminister Terje Riis-Johansen tilstede. Mer om arrangementet, pressemappe med resultater og min presentasjon finner du her.

To Manchester with Ole Gunnar’s dreamteam

Posted in Politics on August 5th, 2008 by Daniel Rees – Comments Off

Last Saturday Ole Gunnar Solskjær played his testimonial at Old Trafford. He has decided to donate the income to the UNICEF Schools for Africa program, and he also challenged Norwegians to join in the action and collect money. My employer TNS Gallup raised more than 20.000 NOK at the annual summer party event, and for our efforts we were awarded a place on Ole Gunnar’s Dreamteam. Thanks to my soccer skills I was a natural choice for the Manchester trip (actually we did a draw). It was a magnificent end to a fantastic career, reaching its height with the 1999 Champions League final winner, but also one that connected with fans and represented what football really is about.

The 2007 Student Peace Prize has been awarded Charm Tong from Burma for her struggle for human rights and democracy in Burma. Tong is currently in exile in Thailand, where she has started her own school and several organizations to improve life for Burmese refugees in the country, and to pressure the military junta controlling Burma. The prize will be presented on the behalf of all Norwegian studens at The international student festival in Trondheim (ISFiT) in February.

Næringslivet må bekjempe fattigdom

Posted in Politics on January 10th, 2007 by Daniel Rees – Comments Off

YUNUS Telenor

Grameen Phone er egentlig Norges mest vellykkede bistandsprosjekt gjennom tidene, for næringslivet har en avgjørende rolle i å bekjempe fattigdom. Bedriftene vil kunne tjene både penger og legitimitet gjennom å investere mer i fattige land, men da må statlige og internasjonale organer være med på å dele risiko og sikre gjennomsiktighet.
