CAN CONSUMPTION OF ANY SORT BE REDUCED, EG PRODUCTS?

It is known that people consumes the products and services of nature, thus everyone has an impact on the earth. The answer to the above question is defininately yes; we can consume less by consuming less per person and lowering the population size of the future generations by reducing fertility below mortality. Thus one strategy of most cost effective that may also increases peoples quality of life and their future possibilities is to meet the demand for safe effective family planning.
 

Consumption can thus be reduced in many ways. For e.g. the environment tax reforms can make the production of disposable products more costly and resource efficient products more affordable. However, this reduction in consumption may then allow people to save money and afford more time for them, having more leisure time.

  • Do only people consume the products and services of nature ? - I think you will find that other organisms do so as well. OK birth control is the ONLY long-term solution but how do we get the majority of the population to accept this - its an infringement of personal freedom.
