The ability to constantly digitally track and record what we do exposes us to the potential for monstrous abuse.
Witness the use of “social credit” scores by the Chinese Communist Party to intimidate and control.
Now they’re rolling out new CO2 tracking credit cards. What could go wrong?
Marc Morano posted to Climate Depot that:
The new CO2 monitoring Mastercard called Doconomy debuted in order to enable “all users to track, measure and understand their impact by presenting their carbon footprint on every purchase.” The credit cards feature the slogan on them reading “DO. Everyday Climate Action” and have a personal pledge on the rear of the card boasting: “I am taking responsibility for every transaction I make to help protect the planet.” The Mastercards feature the UN “Global Climate Action” logo on them as well.
This CO2 tracking credit card is voluntary, yet every day we see a new push to replace voluntary choices with government mandates.
Could we all be subjected to digitally monitored CO2 limits the next time President Biden “loses patience” with us?
