Switzerland: New legislation to conserve the country’s energy supply will make heating homes to more than 66ºF (19°C) unlawful in the event of an energy shortage. In addition, hot water should not be heated to more than 60ºF and portable electric heaters, saunas, and heated swimming pools are prohibited. People who violate the new heating rules could face fines of 3,000 Swiss francs and up to three years in prison. French economist Charles Gave said many people aren’t buying the narrative that Vladimir Putin is solely to blame for the crisis. “For the last 15 years, our European leaders have gone into a climate craze, promoting magic mirrors and windmills as the solution. It does not work. These solutions demand the same capacity in gas power plants.”

After the Swiss and Finns joined the Germans, Austrians, and Swedes in bailing out there energy providers, who are facing trillions in margin calls; new legislation covering Switzerland’s energy supply will make heating homes to more than 19°C unlawful in the event of an energy shortage.

In addition, hot water should not be heated to more than 60 degrees, and portable electric heaters, saunas, and heated swimming pools are prohibited.

Remix News’ Thomas Brooke reports that Swiss citizens found to be in violation of the country’s new heating rules, which prohibit warming homes above 19°C this winter, could face daily fines of up to 3,000 Swiss francs and up to three years in prison.

To note, the World Health Organization has long held that a temperature no colder than 20°C is recommended for children, the elderly, and those with existing health conditions.

Markus Spörndli, a spokesperson of the Swiss Department of Economics (DEF) explained that “infringements of the law on the supply of the country are always misdemeanors, even […] crimes, and must be prosecuted ex officio by the cantons.”

The fine to be imposed on consumers found to be violating the new energy laws will range from 30 francs up to a maximum of 3,000 francs per day, Spörndli said, confirming the amount would be dependent on the nature of the offense and the economic situation of the perpetrator.

Furthermore, willful violations of the government guidelines could see consumers jailed for up to three years in prison, something Spörndli says the government hopes to avoid.

“The draft ordinances are based primarily on the fact that the vast majority of the population respects the laws,” he added.

Economy Minister Guy Parmelin told a press conference at the Federal Council last Wednesday that Switzerland is “not a police state,” but it is understood, as reported by Swiss news outlet Blick, that there may be spot checks undertaken to ensure people are complying with the rules.

Swiss cantons now have until Sept. 22 to discuss the proposals and address how they may be enforced, with some officials concerned they may be inundated with citizen complaints from nosy neighbors.

One wonders if people voted for their own demise or whether the ballot count was rigged in favor of these fruit-loop marxists. However, there is a carbon-neutral alternative that most anyone can make, doesn’t have to be imported, that has been around for centuries, proven by Brazil to output 6-8 more energy than the inputs(including building the tractors to work the fields) ref Alcohol Can Be A Gas: Ethanol.

And exactly how do these despots think they can find out if a house is heated to 70°? Unannounced house visits? A lot of Swiss people have guns at home.
