Living without growth must be possible, otherwise we will eat the earth.
Why do humans want to have more and more? Because the top of the world, the 1%, want to have more and more. Therefore the deteriorating climate cannot be solved, just as the continuing poverty and the ongoing wars. Not humans reign but money.
The role of money only can be changed when people with most money, the 1%, are prevented to spend money for their own benefit. About 1800 people possess more than 1 billion dollar (according to Forbes). The top 10 people possess together more than 500 billion.
Imagine what can be done with the money of only 10 people to improve life for all people. But these ten people and also the further 1800 billionaires were never pressured by any activity of the 99%. They promote that money reigns instead of the life of common citizens. The 1% want to have more and what happens to the 99% is unimportant.
The richest 10% of the world population produces at least more than half of the CO2 gasses. They are in the first place responsible that the climate becomes worse and worse. Money streams upwards and not to the people who need it most. Greed should be replaced by humanity. We can do it by stopping the use of exclusive products.
The climate cannot be saved by the political servants of the 1% who look upward do not mind what happens to the subordinate 99%. The money (and the power and the violence) of the 1% never changed the world in the right way. The 99% should undertake actions against the 1% who spoil the climate by collecting still more money.
The 99% should not demand change from the political servants of the 1% but directly pressure the 1%. In the first place by preventing that exclusive goods, places and services can be used by the 1%. When the 1% cannot spend their money anymore on extravagant items, their money comes available for other purposes. The world will become a world without a 1% that is not dominated anymore by money but by the interests of common citizens. And the climate will become liveable.
