"How could this situation arise in the engineering nation of Sweden?"

If education in Sweden is anything like education in the US, few people other than those pursuing STEM careers learn much of anything about science and engineering...most K-12 'science' classes are now just more 'social studies' in slightly different form.

Even a high % of those who are today called Technology people, such as computer programmers, have little knowledge about the 'hard' engineering topics such as energy production and distribution.

So in the US, I doubt that much more than 10-15% of the electorate, at best, has any interest/knowledge in energy matters...and *worse* for the political classes. Probably the same in Sweden.
