Climate change poses major problems for many regions of the world. Switzerland is finding it difficult to follow a path at the national level. That is why more and more cantons are rushing forward with proposals – just recently, for example, the canton of Bern wrote a climate protection article in its constitution.
The canton of Zurich will make a contribution to coping with climate change in the field of energy use. A large part of the CO₂ emissions should arise in this sector. The new energy law is intended to remedy this. What exactly is involved and the cantonal and national results from the Canton of Zurich can be found below.

Zurich: Changed energy law
This is what it’s about: “Oil and gas heating cause 40 percent of the climate-damaging CO₂ emissions in the canton of Zurich,” writes the Cantonal council in a press release. For this reason, the Zurich Parliament will replace all these heating systems at the end of their service life with more climate-neutral variants such as air-heat pumps. The homeowners association held a referendum against this.

Zurich: The results of the national submissions
At the national level, a decision will be made on three submissions in Switzerland on November 28th. On the one hand, opponents of the corona policy have that Referendum against the Covid law taken, caregiver with the Nursing initiative better working and dying Justice Initiative should change the selection process for federal judges.
It is the second referendum against the Covid law, determined by the Swiss electorate. A first one was rejected in June. In November, the focus will be on the Covid certificate.
The Nursing Association launched this initiative to relieve the nursing staff in Switzerland. The nursing emergency is to be eliminated with various measures such as better employment conditions and more training positions.
The Justice Initiative calls for federal judges to no longer be elected by parliament, but to be given their office by drawing lots. This should lead to more independence of the judiciary, say the initiators. (Lion)
