Chinese Tech Giant Unveils Tracking Device to Monitor Citizen’s Climate Footprint

Chinese behemoth Alibaba has unveiled a troubling new device which could give governments an even greater ability to track the actions of their citizens.

Alibaba announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos that they are developing a digital “individual carbon footprint tracker” to monitor the actions of the public.

Speaking at a “Strategic Outlook: Responsible Consumption” WEF panel in Davos, Alibaba Group President J. Michael Evans said that his company will be introducing more surveillance systems within China in order to usher what they referred to as a “greener” future.

“We are developing through technology the ability for consumers to measure their own carbon footprint… where are they travelling, how are they travelling, what are they eating, what are they consuming on the platform,” Evans said.

 

The former Goldman Sachs banker dubbed the project the “individual carbon footprint tracker,” saying: “stay tuned, we don’t have it operational yet but this is something we are working on.”

The Alibaba Group president added that the company would be providing the data to merchants and individual users.

While Evans did explicitly say that the data would end up in the hands of the CCP, all Chinese corporations are expected by the government to do as they’re told.

The power which the central government has over the firm has also been publicly demonstrated by the disappearing of the billionaire founder of Alibaba, Jack Ma, in 2020 after he offered critiques of the Communist economic model.

Evans further revealed that the firm is developing a green travel” maps system in which people will be provided “the best route, the most efficient route, and the most efficient form of transportation and then if they take advantage of those recommendations, we will give them bonus points that they can redeem elsewhere on our platform”.

So they are incentivized to do the right thing even if they were provided the opportunity to do the wrong thing.”

The proposal has many people comparing it to the Chinese government’s social credit score system, which has seen millions of people barred from travelling, getting favorable loan terms, getting credit cards, applying to higher education, as well as throttling internet speeds and taking away citizens pets if their scores fall too low.

It has also been pointed out that the new device which claims to focus on a greener future was unveiled at the event where thousands of elites fly in on private jets.

Interestingly, the Alibaba Group president said that the purpose of introducing the green tracking measures was “not to make money” but rather to “contribute to our ESG commitments.”

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) rankings, which have also been compared to the Chinese social credit system, have been pushed by massive companies like BlackRock, Microsoft, Sherwin-Williams, Apple, Nike, Google, Goldman Sachs, Facebook, Ebay and Chipotle as a means of pressuring employees into following orders by woke leftists on the environment among other things.

Michael Evans said that “every brand we talk to is interested in ESG,” suggesting that the “woke capitalist” scheme has also penetrated Communist China.

  1. Bad news on EVERY level.
    The question is, what are we going to do about it?
    America is dying.
    Never forget that…

  2. How about you idiots who think carbon is destroying the Earth go and check the facts about climate change not the propaganda saying it’s carbon. It’s tectonic plate shifting and thus is not unprecedented it happened during the Roman Empire and us a cycle that happens not carbon related. If they want to track a carbon footprint then let me be the first to shove my carbon based foot up someone else’s carbon based ass for the world buying into this diabolical lie and see how much carbon is released when my foot comes out.
