    Swiss voters reject climate law and carbon taxes

    Swiss voters voted against a climate law and carbon taxes today in a referendum.
    It was meant to execute the Paris agreement.
    All political parties except one were for the law. The people did not care and voted it down.

    They also turned down two other referendums - one regarding pesticide use, and another providing subsidies to farmers who don't use them.
    Two other environmental questions also looked likely to be defeated in referendums also being held on Sunday, according to early projections.

    A proposal to ban artificial pesticides, and another to improve drinking water by redirecting subsidies to farmers who no longer used the chemicals, were both rejected by 61% of voters in the binding referendums.

    Supporters had argued that pesticides were linked to health risks, while opponents had claimed a ban on pesticides would have led to more expensive food, job losses for the Swiss food processing industry, and greater dependence on imports.

    The Swiss are quite intelligent people for being able to pull that off.
