as much as
"As much as our affective risk perception system can sometimes produce a dangerous "perception gap", between our fears and the facts , it's also reasonably good at recognizing risk when it's starimg us in the face."
What does "as much as" mean in this sentence?
Re: as much as
It's trying to say that even though "our risk perception system" does bad things, it also does good things. And it's weighing the good again the bad.

I'd say that it means "At least as much as it does bad things, it also does good things." or "Even though it sometimes does bad things, it does at least as much good things."
