They are calling for the Declaration of a climate state of emergency in the Canton of Zurich. The government should treat "those businesses is a priority, which mitigate climate change or its consequences".

not much, even if the polar bears clapped in the stands – and from the President of the Council rebuked. The Executive Council now has five weeks of time for a response. Only then is the member of the Parliament can vote on the postulates. In view of the mere 80 votes – the Council has 180 members – a majority is uncertain. Postulates are also very weak instruments.

Ironically, the Left would leave it to the civil government, with measures against climate change to proceed, "the same government that accused you currently, do you in the field of climate policy". And Boesch continued: "If a state of emergency prevails, then in the case of the SP."
