Become a Consumer to Save the World
That's right, think about it. If we only buy what we need most of the world's population will be out of work, because the amount of labor required to produce our basic needs is very little. It's all that stuff we don't really need that provides work and creates thriving economies. So get rid of the old and buy the new. But this does not mean we can ignore the environmental impact from our activities. Recycling and developing low carbon sources of energy for example can all be part of the cycle. Increased government income from taxes in a growing economy can be used to clean up the environment whereas in a stagnant economy the money for this is not there.
