Income levels and emissions

    I have wondered if this is related to all the bad economics we see around. Maybe successful economies are not really the goal.

    Good news! We only need to radically change the lifestyles and practices of the top richest 20% of the population to make a dramatic impact on nearly 70% of emissions. The bad news is these are the most powerful politically and economically in the world and would even try to subvert democracy to retain their privileged and unsustainable way of life!

    Splendid comments by both Jeff and Patrick. But what if the truth “goes viral” that we have had all our wealth on credit from the planet, so that those who have the most owe the most. What power over the rest of us would they then have?

    This really is a global tragedy. The truth of the matter is that all traditional power relations have broken down to the extent that one misses managed capitalism! There is no democracy, just like there is no fresh air to breath, or fresh water to drink, or fresh food to eat. Manufactured consent has turned into boastful arrogance and decadence amongst the rich rulers and their stooges and unless a few of them openly change and donate a few billion to the starving poor, which would be enough to secure them clean water and one meal a day, nothing is likely to change. It is an utter disgrace.
