People Power is a familiar term when you want to make your voices known and fight the governing bodies of your country. It is a famous term in the Philippines. But in this case, the cause is for something else; fighting global warming.
This time, this takes place in Switzerland. You may say that it has some political inclinations involved since it concerns the Swiss government’s move in tackling global warming and green issues. Apparently the new measures do not sit well with the green standard society in the country.
A people’s initiative calling for the government to slash greenhouse gases by 30 per cent by 2020 is set to come to a nationwide vote.
Pressure is mounting on the authorities to do more to fight global warming in Switzerland, especially after the government’s latest package of measures met with a mixed response.
