    What's killing the planet is the combination of overpopulation and overconsumption.  

    But the place to start dealing with overconsumption isn't by impoverishing the working people down to quasi-slave levels.  

    It's by chopping the top off the pyramid, and working down from there.

    We truly can't afford the super-rich any more.  

    What we need is a radically progressive income tax, and a radically progressive carbon tax that gets ferociously steep for high-impact luxury goods such as private jets and yachts.
