The Green Tyrants are moving forward with the first-ever carbon credit system and citizens will be forced to pay penalties for their carbon crimes. This attempt to address the perceived rising global crisis of climate change will force a dramatic shift in how individuals use everyday resources and could mark an entirely new era of environmental tyranny.
The European Union recently approved a plan to institute the world’s very first “carbon credit” system—which basically amounts to everyone in Europe paying for carbon emissions. In its current state, this is still very much a proposal, and is yet to be fully implemented and tested; in fact, the exact details of how it will work are still being figured out as we speak. Still, there is no doubt that this system represents a tyrannical move towards environmental control on the European continent.
For the green tyranny of authoritarian environmentalists and ‘climate communists’, their climate agenda has revolutionary consequences for everyday life that are “still relatively abstract” and for most households “still acceptable.” But soon, drastic interventions in terms of transportation, housing, heating systems, electronic gadgets, food consumption and other aspects will be needed for them to achieve climate neutrality – this is when the massive political resistance will start to kick in. It’s clear from the EU’s goal of zero-carbon emissions by 2050 that green lifestyles won’t just be a suggestion – it’ll become mandatory!
Trending Politics reports the European Union’s parliament has approved the first ever “carbon credit” system. In the early stages of implementation, the plan states that “everyone in Europe will pay for carbon emissions.”
The Dutch site NOS reported that “the measures are part of a package of climate laws. Before 2030, CO2 emissions must be reduced by 55 percent. European industry, which already partly has to do this, will have to deal with higher emission costs, and companies from outside Europe will pay for their emissions at the border. The money raised with this can be spent on climate plans.”
The report added, “Citizens and companies will have to pay for the CO2 from the exhaust and the chimney. This goes through energy companies and pumping stations. They have to pay for emission allowances and then charge the costs to the customer who comes to fill up or turn on the gas heater.”
By 2030, every European citizen will be required to pay for their carbon emissions in order to reduce emissions by 55%. According to climatological records, both carbon dioxide levels and global temperatures are at historical lows.
Americans are now seeing measures similar to those of the European Union being implemented in Democratic states for the first time. John Kerry is trying to raise money for his own climate credit program.
CNN reported, Kerry told CNN at the COP27 climate summit in Egypt that without private money, governments cannot avoid the worst effects of climate change.
The plan by Kerry to allow companies to pay for someone else to reduce their planet-warming emissions, instead of cutting their own, raised concerns among climate experts. Selling carbon credits has been warned to discourage companies from making real reductions in emissions.
Kerry seems determined to get his carbon credit program funded, yet millions want nothing to do with it.
American taxpayers are naturally skeptical of liberal policies that involve large sums of money to carry out. The kind of climate change regulations championed by John Kerry simply requires too much capital and too much effort for most here in the United States to accept it. Therefore, while climate activists across the pond may be able to push their climate tyranny due to European indulgence, American traditions of frugality reign supreme and prevent such measures from getting anything more tantamount to lip service here in the United States. Even token environmentalists are unwilling to part with hard earned cash for such efforts. If people want to change their emission habits they are more than free to, but forcing it on Americans is not the solution.
