Special report: Why politicians dare not limit economic growth - science-in-society - 15 October 2008 - New Scientist
"In short, if we insist on growing the economy endlessly, then we will have to reduce the carbon intensity of our spending to a tiny fraction of what it is now" The Ehrlich equation: "impact (I) of human activity on the planet is the product of three factors: the size of the population (P), its level of affluence (A) expressed as income per person, and a technology factor (T), which is a measure of the impact on the planet associated with each dollar we spend" Page 2 "The one piece of advice you will not see on a government list is "buy less stuff"." "This is the logic of free-market capitalism: the economy must grow continuously or face an unpalatable collapse. With the environmental situation reaching crisis point, however, it is time to stop pretending that mindlessly chasing economic growth is compatible with sustainability."

The good news: You'll find out ways you can make a not-so-big "impression" on the world."
