The Zurich cantonal Parliament supports the demands of the climate youth: He calls a climate emergency. The Parliament voted on Monday morning with 90 to 84 vote for the procedural request. Support this received from SP, GLP, Greens, EPP and AL.
the Decisive factor is the were Yes-votes of the EPP. In the new, more bourgeois-dominated cantonal Parliament has a crucial role in the middle of parties. It handle climate change as a scientifically-based species protection and peace problem, reasoned EPP member of the Parliament, Daniel summer, need the Yes of his party: "Therefore there is now a Parliament that ideological grave to cease fighting and move on."
The SVP had voted against it. In the previous discussion, you made a left-hand Eco-populism, referred to, contrary to any scientific evidence of underground volcanoes as the main cause of climate change, and doubts that the climate goals could be achieved without nuclear energy return. The FDP said, however, against the climate emergency, because the term "emergency" will be abused. Also, the CVP declined.
wink at the end is one of the Central demands of the pupils, demonstrating for the climate protection of polar bears in the audience
The climate emergency. Cities such as Basel, London or Vancouver have declared a state of emergency already and the fight against climate change a symbolic priority in the Council. The cantonal Parliament had declared the corresponding motions of the SP, and GLP in March for urgent.
During the meeting on Monday morning, polar bears were sitting in the public gallery of the Audience, and waved in approval, and folded their arms in disapproval, as they do in their own debates. The disguised young climate activists kept in addition, the statements of each individual Canton parliamentarian on Video.
Neukomm, on behalf of the government, however,
The governments Burr has voted in April against the proclamation of a state of emergency. Such requires, according to the cantonal Constitution a "serious disturbance or immediate threat to public safety". This is not true when it comes to climate. This attitude was represented on Monday morning, of all things, the newly elected Green building Director Martin Neukomm in front of the Parliament. The government know with icon's policy, he said, "we will cut ribbons, make spade tricks. However, the government preferred direct measures and rejects in this case, icon policy."
a further requirement of the climate youth rejects the government so far: the reduction of CO2 emissions to "net zero" by 2030. They wanted to be based on the long-term Swiss climate strategy to reach the Paris climate targets, i.e. CO2-neutral by the year 2050, established by the governing Council in April. (lop/meg)
