No, no, no.
(1) Look at the environmental record of the USSR, or of pre-Deng China. Soviet Earth would be facing ~ as big a climate crisis as Neoliberal Earth (only with Comrade Mann in the role of Sakharov at best).
(2) Maintaining our _current_ sized economies _with our current technologies_ would get us cooked, so it's not _economic growth_ that's the problem.
