Coming Soon: Direct Carbon Taxes on Individuals! By Richard Miller (London)

Where do all the programs of organisations such as the World Economic Forum lead? What will tie all of the suggestions, such as meat bans and fuel restrictions, together? The one thing that does it is a personal tax. Meat is, and will continue to be expensive, and soon it will be prohibitively expensive, so people will not be able to afford it. Farm profits will collapse, and farms will close without the heavy-handed moves made in the Netherlands to close down farms by government action. It can all be done by manipulated market forces. Likewise, with fuel. And then a tax can be placed upon use of a fossil fuel powered vehicle. Raising the tax level will lead to people not being able to effectively use the vehicle. With a cashless society it will be easy to put into place a “social credit” system, where carbon usage is measured, and once your limit is reaches, your ability to buy is cut. It is as dystopian a society as any in science fiction, and it is the direction that things are moving now.

“Would you like to pay a carbon tax every time that you turn your heater on?  What about every time that you fill up your vehicle with gasoline?  Incredibly, this will soon be what life is like in Europe.  When I first heard that the EU plans to impose direct carbon taxes on individuals, I thought that it must be just another false Internet rumor.  But it isn’t a false rumor.  News sources in Europe are reporting on it, and you can find information about this plan on the official website of the European Parliament.  I don’t know why the corporate media in the United States is not talking about this, because this is an enormous story.

 

As I write this article, I am still in shock.  This is actually happening, and if this plan is successfully implemented in Europe it will be just a matter of time before a similar plan is pushed through in the United States.  The following comes from a Dutch article that has been translated into English

Last night, after long negotiations, the bullet went through the church: residents of the European Union must pay for the greenhouse gases they emit. This means that every time you refuel and if the heating is switched on, you have to pay because of the harmful substances that are released as a result.

Of course they are starting small in an attempt to minimize opposition.

Once this plan goes into effect, the cost of a liter of gasoline will only go up by about 10 cents

The new scheme will entail higher prices at the pump: up to 10.5 cents for a litre of petrol and 12 cents for diesel, according to a study by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research.

But as we have seen so many other times, once people become accustomed to new taxes rates tend to go up significantly.

According to one prominent member of the European Parliament, the new direct carbon taxes on individuals are part of “the largest climate legislation package in the EU ever”

“I am pleased that a balanced agreement has been reached on the largest climate legislation package in the EU ever,” says Esther de Lange (CDA) MEP. She was one of the negotiators and responsible for the coordination of the Green Deal and chief negotiator on the Social Climate Fund.

We are being told that there is broad support for this climate legislation package across the political spectrum.

Europe is scheduled to reduce carbon emissions dramatically by the year 2030, and this new legislation will be a central pillar of that effort

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.

If you do not like this new legislation, now is the time to make your voice heard.

Personally, I pledge to make efforts to increase my carbon emissions in protest to this plan.

In fact, I am thinking about firing up my wood stove even now.

The good news, if you want to call it that, is that the new carbon taxes are not scheduled to be implemented until 2027.

So there is still time for the EU to reverse course.

Unfortunately, other draconian measures that are designed to reduce carbon emissions are going full speed ahead right now.

For example, countless farms are currently being permanently shut down all over Europe.

In the Netherlands alone, thousands of farmers are facing forced buyouts whether they like it or not…

The government in the Netherlands is planning to conduct forced buyouts of 3,000 Dutch farms with the intention of closing them down to cut nitrogen emissions in half to meet the country’s climate goals. As many as 11,200 farms will have to close, and another 17,600 farmers will have to significantly downsize their livestock operations to meet these draconian targets.

The plan could not come at a worse time because grocery prices are skyrocketing, and world leaders are warning about an oncoming food crisis caused by supply disruptions caused by the war in Ukraine and rising input costs resulting from the energy crisis.

This is literally insane.

For years, I have been warning that a global food crisis would be coming, and now it is here.

2022 was the worst year for global hunger in decades, and now the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross is warning that we will see “an enormous level of suffering” in 2023…”

“The globalist-controlled EU Commission is throwing gobs of cash at a consortium tasked with rolling out a new biometric payment scheme for European Union residents.

Instead of paying for things with cash, test participants in the program will use their fingerprints to transfer money for payment from a digital identification wallet – no more paper or coins necessary.

The NOBID (Nordic-Baltic eID Project) was chosen to head up the multinational consortium, which includes as its members companies such as Thales and iProov. These two, along with others, will launch one of four planned EU digital identity pilot programs in March 2023.

“iProov is delighted that the NOBID consortium has been awarded funding and chosen to proceed with the pilot,” announced Andrew Bud, founder and CEO of iProov.

“This project will prove biometric-enabled Verifiable Credentials can address the emerging challenges of the increasingly complex world of payments.” (Related: The World Health Organization [WHO] got the ball rolling on all this with the introduction of a “digital wallet” to store covid “vaccine” certificates.)

Other technological partners said to be contributing to the scheme include Signicat, RB, Auðkenni, IPZS, Poste Italiane, Intesi Group, InfoCert, FBK and Latvian State Radio, and Television Center.

NOBID itself consists of the following countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden. The following six states comprise the consortium: Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, and Norway.

By 2024, a full-scale, fully functioning digital ID will be ready for Europe (and probably the entire world)

The EU Commission has entrusted all of these countries and companies to “pilot and shape” the future of the European Union’s planned cashless society, which will cover all 27 member countries. Funding comes from the EU Commission’s DIGITAL Europa Program.

A consortium of banks, as you might expect, are also participating in the pilot scheme. These include DSGV, DNB and BankID, Nets, Intesa Sanpaolo, PagoPA, ABILab, and Greiðsluveitan, among others.

Representatives from NOBID claim they already possess the experience necessary to produce a successful large-scale digital payment pilot scheme, which the EU has described as its top priority and “vision” for a digital, cashless future.

Existing infrastructure will be adapted to accommodate payment issuance, instant payments, account-to-account transfers, and payment acceptance both online and in stores.

The plan is to have everything fully ready by the year 2024. All EU residents will have their identity documents centralized within the platform, along with their driving licenses and bank accounts. Everything about a person, in other words, will be stored within a single scannable chip.

Privacy advocates such as European Digital Rights (EDRi) are speaking out against the plan, as are civil and human rights groups. They say digital ID programs like the ones being piloted violate many laws and constitutions throughout the EU, including in Germany, Austria, and The Netherlands.

Many companies also worry that the cost of transitioning to a cashless society will be insurmountable, causing them to collapse under the weight of this forced totalitarian oppression that is soon to come.

“It will be a social credit system, too, whereby they can dock your bank account for thought crimes which they will monitor via AI (artificial intelligence) connected to the nanowires in your brain,” speculated a commenter about the full extent of what is truly in store for this new dystopian existence.

“All your health records and all else about you will also be there.”

Another wrote that covid “vaccines” will also probably be included in the scheme, as the unvaccinated may not be afforded the same privileges as the fully vaccinated when it comes to the overall functionality of their digital ID wallets.

Global tyranny under a small ruling “elite” is the endgame.
