in December, the FDP at the advice of the CO2 act in the national Council have anything to do with Central elements such as binding reduction targets in the domestic or from a ticket-dispensing wanted. Thus the party has contributed significantly to the template in the large chamber has failed. Now the party President responded: in Order to save the CO2-template, offers Petra Gössi now however, Hand-for a domestic destination and an air ticket levy: "We want an effective climate policy," she says in the Interview.
woman Gössi, currently students are protesting with placards on which "FDP: Fuck de Planet". The free mind is considered as a climate hostile party.
We are not a climate hostile party. The sustainable use of resources for decades in our party program. But the Greens and the green liberals were founded, we have given this issue a little out of Hand. That's why many people don't know that the protection of the environment is actually part of the DNA of the lesser extent, the free.
Why has contributed to the FDP, then a decisive factor for the CO2-law failed in the national Council?
This impression is fundamentally wrong. We have agreed to the law, have rejected it Green, GLP, SP and SVP. We have approved an increase in the gasoline tax of 8 cents per litre, a doubling of the CO2 tax and an extension of the programme for the rehabilitation of the buildings. The Left would have supported, however, by the looks of it, the CO2 act only if all would have met their demands. So our consensus democracy does not work.
your group member, Matthias Jauslin grants, the FDP had made "a significant contribution to the dilution" of the law. The FDP was against an airline ticket levy and the CO2-emissions must also be in the domestic lowered.
The business is now in the Council of States, the preparatory Committee has called for a domestic destination with the help of the FDP representative. This correction has taken place. If this is a large trade-off arises, we will also offer in the national Council for a domestic target Hand. We are not against an airline ticket levy, if this does not help, that the Left rejects the whole business again. At the end of the consultation, we will assess the overall result.
"The climate policy consists not only of the debate to the CO2 act, it goes much further."Petra Gössi
This is a remarkable change of Opinion. How did it come about?
We want an effective climate policy. In contrast to the SVP, we want a solution. We do not, but also, above all, the election campaign as the Greens. It is, of course, you can customize the policy.
this Is the consolidated opinion of the FDP parliamentary group?
We will need to close the ranks. But anyway, I'm willing to set something in motion. And I am confident that the FDP-group will not agree to the final compromise.
The Federal Council's proposal was already a fairly moderate compromise.
Look, we lead the party internally is now a relevant debate. It is planned that we will carry out in the next few weeks a survey of all of our 120 000 members. We want to know from the base, what are the goals of your environmental policy is important.
you Will adjust its policy to the survey results?
of Course, we are taking the concerns of the base. And the survey is also intended to bring clarity to the question of where the FDP environment is political at all. I understand it is that it leads to irritation, when a FDP national councillor calls for new NUCLEAR power stations and a FDP Council of States at the same time to the glacier initiative professes to no fossil fuel emissions by 2050.
I am convinced that environmental protection needs to be heavily based on Innovation and self-responsibility, and less on Prohibited.Petra Gössi
talk to the statements by Hans-Ulrich Bigler, and Ruedi Noser.
Mr. Bigler has acted as President of the nuclear forum. The opinion of the FDP is clear: We support the energy turnaround and call for no new NUCLEAR power plant. This discussion is completed, and also out of thin air, because currently there is no one in the construction of new NUCLEAR power plant would invest. In addition, the disposal issue is still not solved. I told the Mr Bigler.
you Have snubbed Mr Noser for his commitment to the glacier initiative?
I have. The glacier initiative is, however, less transverse in the landscape. It is based on the Paris climate agreement, behind the FDP. The Problem of the Initiative is that, once again, an objective should be written in the Constitution, without the is not going to be shown.
This is the case of popular initiatives in most cases.
That's right. But in the climate debate, it is particularly important to have lofty goals, but also thoughts about how to attain them. If you set it approximately increases to bans or price, that is, if the measures are not close to the people, threatening them in front of the people to fail. In France, the Protest of the yellow West is kindled to a gasoline price increase, and in the Canton of Berne a law for the promotion of renewable energies is a failure.
We are not einthemen party.Petra Gössi
The fight, the FDP, together with the SVP. Which shows once again that Hardly it comes to concrete measures, is the FDP.
The Berne act was obviously too bureaucratic. In addition, the municipalities that have to implement the law would were, against it. I am convinced that environmental protection needs to be heavily based on Innovation and self-responsibility, and less on Prohibited. It is good and right to protest on the streets against climate change. We, as politicians, however, are the responsibility of the majority eligible, and to find workable solutions. And this responsibility takes the FDP is true.
The criticism of the last few weeks she seems to have startled. Your commitment to the environment is more than electioneering?
This has nothing to do with choice of tactics. It goes to a Central issue: the environment. I am now since three years, the party President. I have consolidated the party. The FDP members will have joy again, in the free sense join. I will engage at our next Assembly of delegates in may, the base for a new generation contract. This should include not only retirement, but also to the environmental policy; they are both large topics, which relate to the subsequent generations.
What is included in this generation of the contract because that is exactly, and how binding it is?
I want to show that we believe as a party to the freedom for us humans. We are only strong when all the generations to tackle together in the future, and we are not at the expense of the other life. This goal can only be achieved by a liberal economic system, in which not prevented, but encouraged.
The sounds are not new, and also quite vague.
In a first step is to place this message, so that in the party. In June will take place again, an Assembly of delegates, this time with a focus on environmental policy. There, the contract will be of concrete.
Why you have not announced all of this before the scandal around the CO2-law?
In this legislature, we had to deal with heavy boulders to, the many resources of the gangs, about two Federal Council election or policy on Europe. We are not einthemen party.
I want to remind you of the traditions of the lesser extent, the free.Petra Gössi
climate policy, but already for years, making very little headway – because of the FDP.
We can't tackle everything at once. We are the militia politicians. In addition, the climate policy consists not only of the debate to the CO2 act, it goes much further. It is my task to show. I'm trying to bring the party in questions of climate and environmental protection on a line. If I succeed, we will see. But I go this way now, I want to position my party in the context of the intergenerational contract.
you are afraid of the interview? You could show that part of the FDP would be better off with the GLP.
no. The FDP is a party with a liberal compass. The GLP is working with the energy and climate policy, often with bans and paternalism. In the draft for Consultation of the CO2 act, the GLP has supported the ban on fossil fuel heating systems. I have therefore no fear of the green-liberal. We do not base our policy on whether it opens up new layers of voters. My focus is long-term. That's why I would like to contract for my party for a Generation. In any case, the accusation of election tactics is pointless: I'll take the counter-evidence.
you Have hedged internally?
I have had conversations, Yes. I am confident that movement comes into the thing.
you lean far on the window. And risk a total crash.
I am aware of. But I want to remind people of the traditions of the lesser extent, the free. Everything else will show up.
