woman Rytz, they are considered to be potential Federal Council candidate. Why are you running for the Council of States?
It is not yet determined whether, and with whom the Greens to compete with the Federal Council elections in December. It is clear to me: If I would compete as the Bernese Councillor of state and elected, I would be Councillor of state. Point.
your candidacy is not a Fake candidacy?
SP and the greens have agreed that the runner-up in the first ballot dispensed with. Why don't you hold it?
SP and the greens have also agreed to assess the situation after the first ballot, new. Hans Stöckli, and I were on the two top places. In addition, the elections brought a historic strengthening of the Greens and the women. Therefore, we have decided, both again to compete.
in the Canton of Bern Would be represented by two left the Council of States members because adequate?
the result of The first ballot has shown that in the Canton of Bern changed. Even in rural areas, we know that it needs due to the climate change urgent reforms – such as in tourism. According to a study by the University of Bern will lose the winter tourism in the Bernese Oberland 70 million francs of added value created by climate change. The population to trust us, apparently, to find new solutions. The last of the votes in the Canton of Bern on tax reform or the cuts in the social assistance show that the population weighted social balance is stronger than the government and the Great Council.
"You will need to ensure that the Drive of an SUV has its price."
The Green growth is critical. How do you intend to Finance the conversion into a green economy?
We want economic prosperity without the destruction of nature. And we know that climate protection can be the Chance for the economy. The first CO2 act has created Switzerland more than 40'000 new jobs in the areas of construction and alternative energies. With a sustainable energy policy we can keep the value added in the Canton and not to send every year, billions of francs for Oil and Gas after Saudi Arabia and Russia. Doing nothing will cost more than tackle. Already today, high infrastructure costs on to us. It is almost four billion Swiss francs of taxpayers ' money, for example, costs to the Rhone reflect the water masses, caused by the melting of the glaciers.
How will it be financed without economic growth?
We want a conversion of the linear throwaway economy into a circular economy. A circular economy has fewer jobs, but others. There are more people in the repair area, or in the case of Sharing work platforms.
A circular economy will not be international but competitive.
All countries will need to change. There are huge problems in the use of water and land resources to come to us. Even at the WEF is discussed today about the eco-social restructuring of the economy. It is Berne in the Rest of the typical Japanese, because thinking ahead. The economic society has, in the Canton of Bern already in the 18th century. Century-new ideas for agriculture. And today, we are again in a time of upheaval.
Switzerland to go ahead and not about China or the USA?
Switzerland is a rich country with a strong research location for the development must not lag behind. The policy can set the framework conditions so that it the company is worth, on sustainable economies to change and to renounce, for example, plastic packaging. I have therefore used also successfully for a sustainable Reform of the procurement law.
you have said in an Interview, you would hardly buy new clothes anymore. It is hard to believe.
I have said that I use everyday goods such as clothes for as long as possible and you'll often patch. I buy in quarters also prefer a good bike on which you can ten times to mount a new brake, as a Billigvelo, this is after two winters broken.
The summer of 2019, although in the summer the climate protests. But also the airports recorded record numbers. Between green and green action are worlds apart.
It is not the case that the majority of the population has green selected. But it is a change in the speed. School classes there is a heated discussion about whether or not you can still go with the plane on the Maturreise. A Board operator in the Canton of Ticino told me that you had the fall never before have so many guests as this year. Also the TGV to Paris will be expanded, because the current offer is too small. These are welcome developments.
Plead you for bans?
We are primarily for steering duties, technical limits, and the use of funds, such as the social effects of house renovations. And it will also be necessary to take old technologies out of the market, to introduce new ones. The Greens demand that from 2030 onwards, no new cars with fossil drive be approved. The only way the auto industry has the incentive to make alternative powertrains to the market.
How do you want to convince people?
The effects of climate change are becoming more visible and are changing our everyday lives. Business as usual is not an Option. If the necessary reforms are fair, socially, and effectively, will support the population.
do you believe that people will ultimately come to understanding, and there is no need for bans.
Is a limit, a prohibition or an incentive to develop better technologies? As the Federal Council in 1986 decided to banish the phosphate from the detergents, there was a leap in technology. That's about it.
The share of electric cars is still small, but the number of SUV's is increasing.
The SUV to be purchased, especially in the urban flat land, where the Fort hardly come through the snow is hampered. The advertising is fuelling these needs. You will have to provide pollutant limits and financial incentives for Driving an SUV has its price – for example, via a Revision of the motor vehicle tax.
I'm a vegetarian, have the power from time to time, exceptions. The meat must come from good animal husbandry and local origin.
How should poorer people, biological products make?
Unprocessed and seasonal products are usually cheaper. Of course, the meat produced through cruel mass animal husbandry is cheaper than quality goods. Also, tomatoes from Spain, which were picked in slave labour, are cheaper than Biotomaten from the Seeland. Many consumers are willing to pay for quality at a fair price.
And if you can't pay for it yet?
For food, it is little in comparison with the expenditure for health and Housing. Who wants to social action, it must take the pressure off Rents and health insurance premiums and the protection of the environment save.
