CarbonSat: Enforcing green fascisms CO2 tax from space.
The European Space Agency is set to green light a new surveillance satellite that will measure man-made carbon emissions from space in order to hunt down violators of international climate agreements, allowing Big Brother to enforce a future tax on CO2 emissions.
Labeled CarbonSat, the satellite system will have the ability to differentiate between natural carbon emissions and man-made CO2 releases. Earlier this month, the ESA announced that it had contracted space company Astrium to develop the satellite, which will be ready for deployment by 2017.
The Astrium press release announcing the project makes no mention of the fact that the satellite will be used to perform surveillance on individuals and businesses to keep tabs on their carbon footprint, instead presenting its role as merely measuring carbon emissions.
However, an interview with Astrium President Evert Dudok carried by a German climate alarmist website makes it clear that the technology will be used to spy on human activity from space and impose penalties for non-compliance with United Nations environmental treaties and regulations.
According to a translation by the prominent climate skeptic website No Tricks Zone, Dudok reveals that the primary function of the satellite will be to perform highly intrusive surveillance.
The target is to hunt down environmental violators, said Dudok, adding that the satellite will have the capability to detect methane as well as CO2, meaning farmers, whose activity is already policed by a network of spy satellites and drones, could face fines and taxes depending on the flatulence levels of their livestock.
Knowledge of both of these gases is not only decisive for climate forecasts, but also for monitoring international climate treaties, said Dudok, adding, Up to now there has been no reliable way of monitoring the implementation of the Kyoto and Copenhagen treaties.
In other words, the CarbonSat will be the enforcement arm of dictatorial UN climate mandates.
Dudok also explains that the satellite will be able to detect emissions from cities and coal power plants, greasing the skids for the enforcement of a tax on carbon emissions against both individuals and power companies, which in turn will drive up energy prices for consumers.
The CO2 Handel warmist website explains the true scope of the project in chilling terminology.
Aerospace company Astrium is designing a new satellite for the European Space Agency (ESA) to be used for monitoring greenhouse gas occurrences. The new climate satellite will be able to detect greenhouse gases with an unprecedented spatial resolution: 2 x 2 kilometers. The European Space Agency wants to hunt down environmental and climate violators with its new satellite. Aerospace company Astrium will put together a feasibility study for the project by the end of 2013, according to company reports Thursday. If things move forward successfully, the mission dubbed CarbonSat could already begin as soon as 2017 and thus enable monitoring of international climate treaties.
Given the fact that the global warming alarmist lobby has previously intimated that people who refuse to lower their carbon footprint should either be arrested and put on trial for war crimes, have their homes burned down, or simply liquidated in an orgy of blood and guts, the fact that sophisticated surveillance technology is being prepared to spy on carbon criminals comes as no surprise.
P Gosselin points out that CarbonSat is a perfect reason for European countries to reject United Nations climate mandates.
Now if anyone ever needed a compelling reason not to sign the treaty, this is it. Signatories will have to subject their territories to a constant invasion of privacy. Who knows what else they may want to monitor later on? Where does it end? he asks.
Indeed, this represents the ultimate goal of green fascism, where cutting edge technology is used to oversee a scientific dictatorship in which every facet of human behavior is restricted and controlled. This is the first step towards the Planned-Opolis society imagined by climate alarmist group Forum for the Future as illustrated in the terrifying video below.
Does this mean I can’t burn my garbage?
Looks like we need more F-15A/C satellite killer planes. Failing that, I wonder if we could blind and/or damage the dang thing wish a powerful laser beam.
And what is the carbon footprint of designing, producing, launching, and ground station operations for this? What will be their threshold for going after someone, their anticipated (realistic) rate at doing anything about it? In other words, for you AGW and carbon alarmists... What will be the net gain or loss in carbon here? Do the math, and you may just decide it would be better to going back to mom’s basement.
Remind me to spell out a “greeting” whilst burning old truck tires.
Can't wait to see Belgium declare war on them. I'm getting popcorn for this.
Al Gore's house in Nashville
All of these E.U. nations are going up in 'financial smoke' and the a$$holes want to fund, build and operate some shit like this????
The U.S. is not part of the E.U. but we will wind up giving them the money to do this crap. Then, they will fly over us and charge us with violations, take us before the U.N. or World Court and we'll be paying trillion $$$ in fines.
Are those vehicles parked next to Algore’s humble cottage a new model of Prius? They look a bit Escaladey from the sky.
I’ve seen this link before but didn’t watch the vid until now.
Very, very powerful. Thanks!
looks like the perfect spot to aim for when programming the post-hack de-orbit sequence.... ;)
By God the percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere is already at 0.04% which you can call zero point zero! If anymore CO2 is released that level will reach zero point zero! These people have to be stopped! Before you know it, that level could even get as high as zero point zero and THEN where will we be??
Linking to Digg is just a _sneaky way_ to post stuff from Infowars (Alex Jones) on Free Republic. Did you think no one would notice?
Yes, methane. Another gas the envior-Nazis focus on even though the percentage of methane in the atmosphere is 0.00017% There is more of Al Gores eyebrow hairs floating in the atmosphere than freakin' Methane!
the thing will be permanently blinded then after it’s first trip over China
And see those buildings in the upper left corner? I bet you that’s his as well. Probably his garage(s).
No, the target is freedom, capitalism and America.
Don’t think that the “black box” soon to be mandated in all new cars won’t have the capability to track us in some way so we can be taxed for the carbon we emit while driving. Already there have been proposals to use such GPS tracking to tax us for miles driven on state and federal highways as the gasoline tax is no long “enough” for the government’s needs.
Let me know when it’s over my house so I can ‘moon’ it.
Gee, Hatchet, I didn’t notice that but being the bright-eyed beagle that you are I’m certainly glad you did.
You could get hall monitor out of this bit of obamaesque spy work.
Love to see the court provable science on the satellite imagery to be acceptable evidence and not heresy. The the provable science that the defendant in the case has performed damage and how that damage amount is to be determined. Remember, IN A COURT OF LAW. Not the kangaroo court of public opinion and dueling scientists seeking funding.
Nice teeth, Al.
Good target for one of our (non-existing, of course) anti-sat weapons.
Don’t thank me. Thank FatherofFive.
Nominating me for "hall monitor", belies the fact that you're "glad" that I noticed something you claim not to have noticed. Do you want us to believe you wouldn't have posted it had you "noticed"? /s
The two biggest CO2 creators are China and Africa. Think they’ll be taken to task for doing such?

You’re hall monitor. Keep up the good work.
