We’re destroying nature, which is going to harm us badly. We have to change direction. Governments are not going to do it – they’re awash with corporate money, they massively subsidise the fossil fuel industry, pursue perpetual GDP growth and have flown around the world to COP meetings for 27 years, resulting in record global carbon emissions.
We have to do it ourselves, first as individuals:
1. Low-impact living
Learn to live in ways that are less damaging to nature; gain skills to provide things for yourself, your family and friends, and prepare for what’s coming.
Low-impact living is essential, but insufficient – not enough people will do it, and we live in a system that’s hostile to it. We have to come together to build a:
2. Low-impact economy
A low-impact economy is a ‘commons’ economy that will provide the essentials of life affordably, create more and better jobs, prepare communities for what’s coming and decentralise power.
Low-impact living and low-impact economy complement each other – and actually, require each other. We can’t have a low-impact economy if high-impact living is the norm; and low-impact living is impossible in an economy that siphons wealth out of communities and has to constantly grow.
