(LifeSiteNews) – A Canadian credit union will be launching a Visa credit card which will allow users the option to track their carbon emissions.
Vancity says its “Carbon Counter” Visa card is a Canada first and claims it is needed for “climate action.”
Those who sign up for the program will get a monthly total of their purchasing carbon footprint, as well as “advice” on how to make more “climate” friendly purchases.
According to Vancity’s Chief External Relations Officer Jonathan Fowlie, its members want “ways to reduce the impact they have on the environment, particularly when it comes to the emissions that cause climate change.”
The G20 meeting this October will see the most powerful nations in the world - the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the E.U., Australia, India, China, Russia and Brazil among others - discuss climate policies that are already affecting billions of people around the world.
This powerful cadre of international leaders wants the world to run on solar and wind power, forcing an end to the use of gas, oil and nuclear power, as well as crushing beef farmers because of supposed methane emissions.
But the harsh impact of such policies is already being felt, with energy blackouts and soaring inflation hammering people around the world, making it beyond time for all of us to speak out.
SIGN: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
As western leaders turn off the oil spigots and impose draconian restrictions on farmers, we've all experienced the pain of increased prices, not least at the pump and the grocery store.
This inflation was entirely avoidable if only our politicians prioritized food and energy security over climate theories, but instead they have succumbed to radical environmentalists whose agenda would cripple the livelihoods and living standards of much of the globe.
Communities all around you are feeling the weight of crushing price hikes, which will soon reach your own food isles and gas pumps if it hasn't already.
The effects of inflation are being felt in the developing world most, as fuel and food prices sky rocket, making even worse poverty an inevitabilty for hundreds of millions of people.
Reality will hit home for us soon.
The harshest effects of energy shortages will be felt this winter in the west, when our leaders' decisions to cut oil supplies and reject Russian natural gas will:
- force heating, fuel and electricity prices to sky rocket
- continue to make food more expensive
- risk a global depression as inflation spirals out of control
- prompt more blackouts
- make civil unrest a real possibility
The media are already preparing people for rolling blackouts. States like California and countries like England are warning citizens that they face severe electricity and gas shortages.
Now is the time to speak out and be part of a movement that can prevent this disaster spreading.
SIGN the petition calling on international leaders to abandon their reckless energy agenda and return the world to economic stability.
The entire climate change industry is based on models that have been consistently inaccurate for decades, with Al Gore among the most infamous prophets of doom to be proven wrong.
In 2009 Gore told the COP15 climate change conference in Copenhagen that the North Pole would be ice-free by 2014, a claim that remains wildly off the mark.
Arctic sea ice has increased since 2012 and is now close to the average for 1991-2000 – another inconvenient fact for climate change alarmists, alongside thriving polar bears and more coral on the Great Barrier Reef. https://t.co/3m7jcaj1hV— Toby Young (@toadmeister) September 1, 2022
Al Gore is not alone in getting things wrong however, as this brief timeline of scaremongering headlines proves:
The world needs to wake-up to what's really happening: our lives are being upended on the basis of climate theories and models that have been consistently wrong for decades.
It's time to stop the scaremongering and push back against the radical agenda of international elites.
SIGN & SHARE: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
He added that the new carbon-tracking credit card will allow those with it the ability to “connect their daily spending decisions to the change they want to see in the world.”
Vancity’s program is being launched in partnership with the German company ecolytiq.
Visa is also backing the program as well in what is known as a “green transformation” of the worldwide banking system.
The CEO of Visa Europe Charlotte Hogg said last year that “A significant shift is needed towards more sustainable behaviors to meet the global net-zero goals by 2050.”
Groups such as the World Economic Forum (WEF) along with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change have been strong proponents of pushing agendas that track people’s finances, much like social credit like schemes in place in China.
A large part of the great “reset” idea is the implementation of purchasing tracking mechanisms on consumers under the guise of following one’s so-called “carbon footprint.”
Indeed, at this year’s WEF’s Annual Summit in Davos, Switzerland, China-based Alibaba Group spoke of new technology that would track people’s carbon footprints through the monitoring of their spending, eating, and traveling habits.
Klaus Schwab, the WEF founder and chairman, told thousands at the Davos summit that “the future is built by us, by a powerful community such as you here in this room.”
Since taking office in 2015, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pushed the radical environmental agenda also being promoted by the WEF as part of its “Great Reset” agenda.
Indeed, Trudeau’s 2022 budget includes a portion that mandatory climate-related reporting is in the works for all federally regulated financial institutions in Canada.
This is part of a push for businesses to adopt so-called “Environmental Social Governance (ESG).”
ESG, as it is known, is a set of standards for business operations that can be used by global investors to see whether a company is following standards when it comes to its environmental, social, and governance work models.
A company’s ESG indicator can be used to create a climate “score” of a business, including its overall carbon emissions, along with internal accounting practices.
The Great Reset is a militant plan created by global elites that “seeks to ‘push the reset button’ on the global economy.” Its many critics say it would create a new world order with aspects of the Chinese Social Credit System.
In recent months, the Canadian federal government, citing “climate change,” has been looking to implement a “Great Reset” backed by nitrogen-rich fertilizer reduction policies in Canada like those in Sri Lanka and the Netherlands.
The Trudeau government said that a 30 percent reduction in fertilizer by 2030 is one of its goals as part of its radical climate agenda.
LifeSiteNews has reported that there is an official job posting by the Trudeau government for officers in the so-called “Environmental Enforcement Directorate.”
A June 2017 peer-reviewed study by two scientists and a veteran statistician confirmed that most of the recent global warming data have been “fabricated by climate scientists to make it look more frightening.”
