The Swiss Say ‘No,’ ‘Nein,’ to Costly Climate Regulations

Anthony Kim writes in The Daily Signal about how the Swiss are rejecting costly climate regulations.

The C3 Take
  • Swiss citizens recently voted to strike down a referendum that imposed costly climate regulations such as a carbon tax, an artificial pesticide ban, and subsidies for farmers who stopped using pesticides.
  • The actions of the Swiss give the United States an excellent blueprint for effective climate policy.
  • Instead of pursuing mandates, the Biden Administration should look to markets to lower emissions and provide solutions that benefit American citizens and our environment.

“From a broader policy perspective, the right way to ensure a cleaner and healthier environment is through free market principles, which have proven to deliver environmental success. The most remarkable improvements in clean energy use and energy efficiency over the past decades have occurred not as a result of government command and control, but because of advances in economic freedom.”
