Are individuals ready to make sacrifices in their consumption to reduce CO2 emissions? The answer is no.
It is fair to say that capitalism is at the origin of the large increase in consumption that the western world experienced during the last 200 years. This should definitely be considered as a good thing. The degrowth movement claims that capitalism is guilty for generating the climate change problem, and this is a legitimate reason to dismantle it. The problem is that any alternative allocation mechanism, such as socialism or the Green New Deal, would probably not be better in terms of CO2 emission.
