French term or phrase: Un enjeu d'opinion
This is from a PPT promoting nuclear energy (low waste, low greenhouse gas emissions, etc.)

The title of one slide is: "La question des déchets, un enjeu d'opinion,"

The slide shows a graph comparing amounts of waste produced by different industries, with nuclear producing the smallest amount.

Any ideas?
thanks!

neutral  Kiwiland Bear: Well, yes, but is it the same meaning? I take it the original slide doesn't target the public opinion. Or does it?

an issue of perception


Explanation:
I think perception might make the idea clearer in English.

Or even "the challenge of perception", with a definite article where the French has an indefinite.

Some options to play with, anyway...
