Switzerland backs new climate measures in referendum as glaciers melt โ€˜at an alarming rateโ€™

๏ปฟ
A majority of Swiss citizens have voted in favour of a Bill aimed at introducing new climate measures to sharply curb the rich Alpine nationโ€™s greenhouse gas emissions.
Final results released by public broadcaster SRF showed that 59.1 per cent of voters were in favour of the Bill, while 40.9 per cent voted against.
The referendum was sparked by a campaign by scientists and environmentalists to save Switzerlandโ€™s glaciers, which are said to be melting away at an alarming rate.
This victory means that at last the goal of achieving net-zero emissions will be anchored in law. That gives better security for planning ahead and allows our country to take the path towards an exit from fossil fuels,โ€ Georg Klingler, an expert on climate and energy at Greenpeace Switzerland, said.
It also sets aside more than three billion Swiss francs (ยฃ2.6 billion) to help wean companies and homeowners off fossil fuels.
