No Impact Man on Consumption

Warren wrote earlier today "wasn’t it rampant consumption that got us into this mess?"

Colin Beavan, aka No Impact Man, is asking the same question.


None of the politicians seem to want to discuss the fact that consumption is at the root of our environmental problems. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the reasons for that.

Doesn't reducing consumption make perfect sense? Why is it the elephant in the living room? Are people too selfish to consume less? How do we move towards a less consumptive society? How much would it help with the climate crisis?
