Do we need more growth?
If we are talking about economic growth, absolutely not.
Do we need more biological growth? Absolutely, yes.
Climate change is (for some) the topic of the day, but it is only a symptom. It is not the real problem. That problem is that humans have become parasites on the planet. We assume that the planet and all its resources are there just for us. We ignore the other 8 million species on earth. We are doing our best to destroy as many of them as possible.
That has to change. We absolutely have to restore biodiversity. We need to grow, grow, grow. Let photosynthesis work its magic.
