People Power - Swiss voters strike down climate initiatives
Switzerland's government just bailed out of talks with the EU on climate issues, and now its citizens, voting on three climate-related referendum questions have struck another blow against the climate alarmists by defeating all three.  The margins against the questions ranged from 51% to 61%, with rural voters most strongly opposed..
Each issue had been put before the people by the government rather than by citizen petition.  One of them would have raised motor fuel taxes and airline ticket taxes to meet the demands of the Paris "climate accords".  The other two were directed at artificial pesticides and at drinking water.  The strongest opposition to the environmental initiatives, according to exit polls, came from voters aged 18 to 34, who rejected the initiatives by between 60% and 70%, 9 points more than the public as a whole.

Hooray for the Swiss in fighting back against the climate alarmist boondoggle and just saying NO to the increased taxes demanded by these scam artists. I wish we could do the same with a referendum, but I am also mindful of how the French forced their president to back down on these "climate taxes". They took to the streets in massive protests, the so-called Yellow Vest movement, and basically shut down the country to force Macron to back down and repeal them. The US does not have provisions for a national referendum like the Swiss, so we may have to go the French route if Biden and the Democrats try to sock us with similar taxes.
