Excellent Reset: Individual CO2 Limitations Needed to Fight Climate Change, Says German Scientist

Those who exceed their limit must be forced to pay for the pleasure.

An individual carbon dioxide limit needs to be applied to every person in order to set up a “ planetary guardrail” within the effort to combat allegedly man-made climate change, a leading German scientist has contended.

Hans Joachim Schellnhuber from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Influence Research (PIK) said this week that every person should have a limit of three tonnes of C02 emissions each year and those who exceed their particular limit should be forced to spend on the pleasure.

In comments  documented   by Taagesschau, Schellnhuber said that there were are two competing property legal rights issues at hand, namely the proper to spend one’s money upon high emissions activities as well as the rights of the rest of the population to “ have an atmosphere worth living [in]”.

Inside a carbon credit style system, those who emit over the three-tonne limit by the middle of the centuries would need to privately purchase credit from those who are under the limit, he suggested: “ Everyone gets three tons of CO2 per year, but if you need more, you just have to buy this. ”

Currently, according to the news outlet, the common German is far above  Schellnhuber’s proposed limit, because ten tonnes of C02 emissions are produced by the common citizen. Citing the Paris World Inequality lab, there are several millionaires within the country that produce over 100 tonnes of CO2 per year, plus some thousands of elites worldwide give off over 2, 000 tonnes per year.

Apart from not spelling out how he expects people to drastically reduce their carbon emissions, the German scientist failed to elaborate on how exactly this will be tracked and monitored.
