    Smile the number-one environmental concern

    According to surveys, the number-one environmental concern in America and other countries today is climate change.

    ... the prime/prior environmental worry ...



    The second version is how I render the first. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks.

    Prime is ok; not prior - which means previous.

    Thanks, Anglika.
    By the way, are worry and concern interchangeable in the base sentence?
