The Swiss Vote for Environmental Sanity

The Swiss have rejected imposing a climate tax on themselves. 

As we have observed many times, it is easy to tell a pollster that one is concerned about the environment but giving politicians more power to spend your hard-earned money or reduce your lifestyle is something very different. 

Carbon taxes are a terrible idea -- the polls will spend it on their pet projects and their constituents will be that much worse off. Power, once given to politicians, is very hard to reclaim. 

The far better way to achieve decarbonization of energy is through nuclear power and, where possible, hydroelectric power.
