The climate debate gives the Ökoparteien wings: Green and green-liberal are authorized in the most recent SRG-election barometer, the big winner in the election.

‘ want to use the Greens now with a Climate campaign in Parliament. On Monday, the beginning of the spring session, you submit a whole bunch of Attempts to save the climate. “The debate on the new CO2 law, we have seen how blatantly, the economic lobby from SVP and the FDP foutiert to the climate crisis,” says the Bernese national councillor Aline Trede (35) to VIEW. However, the worldwide student climate strikes have given the discussion a new dynamic. Especially the FDP, the pressure is increased and as party leader Petra Gössi (43) has made a u-turn in views.

“fossil-free commuter deduction”

This is now also the Green hope to score with new ideas. The most controversial idea comes from Trede and her party colleague Sibel Arslan (38, BS). The two take the car commuters to the visor: The commuter deduction in the tax return will in future only be granted to those “to be used for commuting to and from work in a vehicle with a net-Zero CO2 emissions”. As an Alternative, you can think of to pair, the amount of the commuter deduction of CO2 emissions.

A “fossil-free commuter deduction” is the goal. Electric cars are not fine out how to Trede stresses: “It also depends on the current, with which the cars are operated. Dirty coal power may not benefit from the commuter deduction.”

of the thousands of francs

For those Affected, it is the Federal tax of up to 3,000 francs, which can be deducted. In most of the cantons significantly higher deductions are for taxes, even possible – in Zurich, for example, up to 5000 Swiss francs in Bern 6700 Swiss francs, in Aargau, 7000 francs, or in the Grisons 9000 francs. Some cantons do not even know about limit no fixed upper.

should be also in the cantons of the “fossil-free commuter deduction” is a reality. The Federal Council is to show “how the cantons can be motivated to adopt in the framework of the cantonal competencies to the same requirements”, calls for Trede. In addition, the Greens want to do with analog Motions directly in the cantonal parliaments and pressure.

“motorists need to make their contribution”

With your Initiatives to create the Green car commuters barely friends. The white Trede, but it doesn’t bother you. “The traffic is a third of the greenhouse gas emissions are still the biggest climate polluters,” she says. And unlike oil there is in the petrol, to date, no CO2-tax.

“The car lobby is still touched with velvet gloves,” says Trede. This must change. “Given the climate crisis, the drivers must make their contribution. The climate-damaging incentive must therefore be deleted from the law.”

FDP-Burkart: “Massive punishment”

In the case of the FDP in the national Council and TCS Vice-Thierry Burkart (43, AG) pushes the green idea. “The proposal boils down to a massive punishment, virtually the entire working population,” he says. “Our society and the way we earn our money, not by the push of a button change.” Many people could not sell of your car and an electric vehicle purchase.

“should Systematically be applied when public transport is the same principle, and for each journey shown that it is only with electric drive with renewable electricity,” replies Burkart. He could not imagine that the voting public were willing, such a “bureaucratic Monster”.

SVP-criticized Imark “demonization”

SVP national councillor Christian Imark (37,) rejects if Tredes proposal of the hands. “Apparently, the lives of Mr and Mrs Swiss will be more expensive with all the violence,” grumbles he. Had to pay then the working population.

the recipes of The Green were not sustainable, he says. You would cause your policy even more greenhouse gases. “The shutdown of nuclear power plants and the demonization of the diesel engine directly lead to higher CO2 emissions,” complains Imark. “Now, to be switched with all the violence on electric, without this technology would be more environmentally friendly.” Thus, climate change will not stop.

The green climate offensive to not only the commuter deduction, but in many other areas, such as further initiatives.

CO2-brake: national councillor Irène Kälin (32, AG) is required on a parliamentary Initiative that new laws be tested on the expected greenhouse gas emissions. This CO2 balance is to ensure that the laws correspond to the objectives of the global Climate. With a further advance requires the introduction of a CO2-brake – analogous to the output brake. CO2-oriented laws would have to agree to an absolute majority of the two councils. the flight restriction in the Federal government: The Greens want to take the Federal employees in air travel to the curb. When the destination without a flight within eight hours, they should waive the service of air travel. This regulation should also apply to members of Parliament, if the Federal government shelled out for the trip, Trede. the climate-warnings: When advertising for air travel will be climate warnings attached. In addition, flight advertising on SBB is to be prohibited areas. the night trains : The Federal Council is to take night trains in the SBB-owner’s strategy.

But not only, with Initiatives to make the Green print. You are planning for the spring session, a “FDP-Monitoring”. “We will look to the FDP members of Parliament in climate-related transactions carefully on the Finger, whether you believe it with the climate protection seriously, or whether your Boss Petra Gössi just empty promises,” says Trede.

As an indicator to the Green, using the recommendations of the major environmental organizations. “We will draw each week, an interim balance sheet and publish,” says Trede. “So the boys can see where the FDP is in the climate issue, really.” Ruedi Studer
