A bank in Canada has become the first in the country to launch a credit card that tracks a customer’s carbon footprint, amid fears such a scheme could one day be used to cap purchases.
In an effort by the credit union to show its commitment to “climate action,” Vancity will offer a credit card that links purchases to carbon emissions, allowing customers to compare their monthly carbon footprint to the national average.
The bank will also advise customers on how to reduce their carbon footprint.
“We know that many Vancity members are looking for ways to reduce their impact on the environment, “Especially when it comes to emissions that drive climate change,” said Jonathan Foley, Vanketti’s head of external relations.
“As a member-owned financial co-operative, we believe it is our mission to do everything we can to help, especially when it comes to the decisions people make with their money. This tool will provide Vancity Visa credit cardholders with valuable information about their purchases and enable them to connect everyday spending decisions to the change they want to see in the world.”
According to research by Visa, more than 50% of Canadians are interested in monitoring their carbon footprint.
As explained earlier, in October, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) also announced a similar scheme, giving the customer the option to “pay a fee” to offset their carbon footprint, with an average listed as 1,280 kilos, which is far from the “sustainable” figure. 200 kg.
Allied with climate shutdowns, technocrats want to exploit hysteria about climate change to increase financial control over individuals.
Such a proposal was put forward in the scientific journal Nature by four environmental “experts” as a way to reduce global carbon emissions.
Each person would be issued a ‘Carbon Allowance Card’ which would require all adults to receive an equal, tradable carbon allowance that would be reduced over time in line with national specifications [carbon] Objectives “.
The authors explain that the program will be a “mandatory national policy.”
Units of carbon will be “subtracted from the personal budget with each payment of transportation fuel, home heating fuel and electric bills,” and anyone over the limit will be forced to purchase additional units on the personal carbon market from those who have the surplus to sell. “
Naturally, this only negatively affects the poor, as the rich can afford to buy carbon credits in abundance and still enjoy their lavish, not-so-environmentally friendly lifestyles.
