‘Doconomy’, a Carbon-Credit Card That Tracks Users and can Block Their Spending

A new credit card called Doconomy is now working with Mastercard. This will allow you – or others in the system –  to monitor your personal CO2 budget on every purchase you make. The card cuts off spending when it hits the carbon max that has been determined for you. This credit card follows on the heels of a study in the Journal Nature in August 2021 calling for “personal carbon allowances” that would monitor individuals’ CO2 emissions through smart meters and tracking apps. The personal carbon allowance also tracks food consumption for rationing. Future credit scores may be based on browsing history as well as debt history. Doconomy’s new CO2 monitoring card boasts that it provides 90-million consumers with carbon footprint insights, and it aims to reach 1-billion users at COP26 in November. It is voluntary at present, but the goal is to create a mandatory monitoring system similar to China’s social-credit score program. -GEG

The World Economic Forum praised Doconomy. “While many of us are aware that we need to reduce our carbon footprint, advice on doing so can seem nebulous and keeping a tab is difficult. DO monitors and cuts off spending, when we hit our carbon max.” 

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano: “This CO2 monitoring credit card will begin as a ‘voluntary’ measure with no ‘mandate.’ But how long until this CO2 card will be mandated by big corporations in collusion with governments? Given how the climate activists are aping the COVID lockdowns, expect this credit card to be mandatory under a ‘climate emergency.'”

Get ready for a Chinese-style social credit system scoring when it comes to your personal spending habits and how they impact “climate change.” A new credit card called Doconomy, has launched that is “working in tight collaboration with Mastercard” and an alliance with the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)  is now available so you can monitor your personal CO2 budget on every purchase you make.

The new CO2 monitoring Mastercard called Doconomy debuted in order to enable “all users to track, measure and understand their impact by presenting their carbon footprint on every purchase.” The credit cards feature the slogan on them reading “DO. Everyday Climate Action” and have a personal pledge on the rear of the card boasting: “I am taking responsibility for every transaction I make to help protect the planet.” The Mastercards feature the UN “Global Climate Action” logo on them as well.

The World Economic Forum praised Doconomy. “While many of us are aware that we need to reduce our carbon footprint, advice on doing so can seem nebulous and keeping a tab is difficult. DO monitors and cuts off spending, when we hit our carbon max,” the World Economic Forum wrote on the Doconomy CO2 monitoring website.
