As seen with the Chinese Communist Party’s social credit score, worldwide purchases will be controlled and monitored by the banks, corporations and governments.
Banks have already started collating people's detailed purchases into percentages of increased or decreased historical spending data.
Current articles that are circulating, which have been validated firsthand, are reporting that the Big Four Banks are now directing guilt onto people's purchases, by informing them of their carbon usage and shaming them on how many trees each purchase has cut down.
This can be seen when you click the 'yes' option to the carbon tracker within your online banking app, but even if you don't, they still collect and calculate your carbon usage via the backend.
- How will this information be used?
- To which governments and private corporations is this information being revealed?
See more below on banks and carbon tracking programs being implemented.
Why is Carbon Tracking Being Used by our Banks?
It relates to carbon capture and trading derived from so-called climate change policies implemented by Governments globally under the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Carbon tracking also links to the Digital ID and Digital currency that is in the process of being implemented globally.
According to a paper written in Nature.com, "... personal carbon allowances (PCAs) aim to influence energy and consumption behaviour by increasing carbon visibility, by evoking users’ cognitive awareness of carbon in their daily routines and by encouraging carbon budgeting.
Moreover, the shared goal of emissions reduction and the equal-per-capita allocation of PCAs is envisaged to create a social norm of low-carbon behaviour".
It can be seen that employing behaviour-modification techniques via guilt and shaming has been planned well in advance.
The use of psychological warfare to influence compliance to the overall plan (in which we have zero-say) is common practice.
What if Work from Home = Carbon Tax Offset?
Here is a hypothesis to consider. We can assume corporations knew the carbon tax and allocation plan was coming, as it has been in the wings via the G20 Summits over the years, plus other global leader meetings such as Davos. Was the whole 'work from home' planned as part of the lockdowns?
It would certainly benefit large corporations renting office-space in the cities, for the majority of workers to exit office buildings under the guise of public health safety. Hence, the carbon cost is then pushed from the employer onto the employee.
The employer does not have to foot the carbon bill in running a large office or building with multiple staff, equipment and utilities.
However once the carbon allocation and limits come into effect, those who are working from home will be exceeding their personal carbon allowance limit, and will be required to purchase additional carbon credits at their own cost, placing the burden on those individuals.
"....in many countries, mobile apps designed for COVID-19 infection tracking and tracing played an important part in limiting the spread of the pandemic. The deployment and testing of such apps provide technology advances and insights for the design of future apps for tracking personal emissions"

You are Likely to Foot the Bill, if You Work From Home
Employees that are aware of the additional financial burden being placed on them, could use this as an advantage in their workplace contract negotiations. You can thank the writer later for this workplace relations tip.
The flip side and ONLY benefit that employees may be able to salvage from this may be by being able to use it as a remuneration bargaining chip (their salary + super + additional carbon allowance).
We have seen many instances where the Covid-19 'track and trace' implementation has been touted as a successful exercise and social experiment of compliance by various global organisations, including the World Economic Forum.
In hindsight, we can see how 'track and trace' has paved the way for carbon tracking to now be implemented.
