I agree with every word of Ted Trainer’s message

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.

  1. Dr Bob Rich says:

    Oh, but Ted’s philosophy, like mine, is strong on reducing rather than increasing population.

    There are some words I disagreed with. Here are some, for instance:

    “…there can be no defensible option but to shift to lifestyles and systems that involve extremely low per capita throughput”

    That would only help temporarily. The Jevons Paradox would set in, as the reduced demand on the environment would simply allow there to be still more people on the planet — for a short time, and then we’d be back to square one.
