The world we envision...
... is democratically changing towards:
Zero population growth and subsequent population reduction.
People understand that more children lead to more poverty
and stress upon the land. Social security for old age and illness
is provided by the community. Reduction will bring
population size in line with the earth's carrying capacity.
Steady state economy and subsequent contraction.
Halting economic growth will stop the increasing depletion rates
of non-renewable resources. New societal incentives will favour
economic contraction by restructuring and increased longevity of products.
The least polluting means of transportation by phasing out
private motorized vehicles and air transport. This is one major step
to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thereby prevent run-away
"Re-localisation" of working and living - firmly linked to the
reduction of transportation. People have much more time, and
money. The benefits for the community are enormous, in terms of
huge reductions in expenditure for traffic infrastucture, resource
and space use, and reduced illness and accident costs.
High quality production, re-use, repair, and recycling - thereby reversing the trends
of resource consumption and pollution. The longevity of many products can be increased
dramatically, thus saving time, money, and resources.
Low speed lifestyles - since high speeds need more energy and resources.
Full employment in healthier jobs. Many industrial jobs will be replaced by manual work
in the agricultural sector. Industrial agriculture will be replaced by natural foods and
Stop worrying about climate change and illusionary greenhouse gas emissions
compensation and trading solutions.
Stopping economic growth and population growth, followed by contraction is the sure and
fastest method to prevent further climate change.
