Total surveillance is required to prevent global warming.
Alibaba Group President J. Michael Evans has introduced a project designed to track people’s personal “carbon footprint,” that the Chinese giant is working on, to the World Economic Forum (WEF) audience.
The intent is to measure every single action a person does to determine their “carbon footprint” and then be awarded social credit-style “carbon credits” when they behave in a manner expected of them by the state. That includes monitoring where and how people are traveling, eating, shopping, and socialising.
WEF member Evans seems pretty pleased with himself as he explained what the upcoming “individual carbon footprint tracker” technology entails, and it is “an ability for consumers to measure their own carbon footprint (…) where are they traveling, how are they traveling, what are they eating, what are they consuming on the platform.”
Those who can’t wait to start using this tech also learned from Evans that while it is not operational yet, Alibaba is in advanced stages of implementation.
A post on Alibaba’s site earlier in the year provided some insight into what the scheme is really all about. Relying on Alibaba Cloud’s Energy Expert platform, the goal is to train citizens to change their lifestyle in a way that will reduce carbon emissions. Many have pointed out that the entire global warming 'crisis' is a scam, a Macguffin used as the reason that total surveillance is required.
The tracker itself is still not operational, but the platform is already in use by close to 1,500 companies and communities in China, the a post said.
Xiao Lei, who heads Alibaba Cloud’s low carbon campus project focusing on students, is cited as saying that the corporation is using behavioral science and technology “to change people’s perceptions and make low-carbon fashionable.” where have we heard that before?
In schools participating in the scheme, thousands of students have started using an app that lets them track the amount of electricity used in their dorm – data that is then used to calculate the amount and rank dorms each week – and also provide proof that they are eating all the food on their plate by submitting photos as evidence.
