As most sane folk know, the notion of carbon footprint was invented to provide an extraordinary degree of control over every person on Earth. All seven billion of us – we each have a carbon footprint and the UN still seems intent on using it as designed – to control us in a way any farmer would understand. It’s what COP17 is all about.
As governments and global bureaucracies grasp the possibilities of having international standard measures for all the inputs and outputs of a human life, it may be that we need to raise more than our voices about the implications. Especially now we have even more hard evidence from the revelations in Climategate 2 that climate change propaganda is just that – propaganda.
Carbon footprint is the equality agenda taken to its Animal Farm conclusion. Equality is turning out to mean little more than the rights a farmer expects livestock to have. Carbon footprint using common units such as kilograms of carbon dioxide per year can be used as a standard measure of :-
- Warmth and light.
- Non-food sundries.
- Work environment.
All these have their carbon footprints. Because they are expressed in the same units, they can be mixed and matched and added together to give global pictures of what sized carbon footprint is appropriate to maintain a human being in a state of bovine passivity – or equality as it is so often described by those with an ambiguous vocabulary.
The carbon footprint seems to be the tool by which human beings are to be domesticated. It is the key measure by which we are to be farmed – to be reduced to livestock where all inputs are calibrated to a global standard and thereby globally controlled. Don’t believe it? In the UK we are already being lectured on how many bedrooms there should be in what we used to think were our homes.
