production necessarily comes before any consumption choices you make. they plan for a certain number, and if people don't buy the product, they will market and discount and fiddle with things until they do. the only way to handle this is to restrict production directly.

and like, i saw your arguments about the gains from, say, not driving a tesla being very low. but all that shows is that we're not going to solve this through individual choices. not every kg of CO₂ can be avoided by making a personal choice.

and under the current system, all the people who are most powerless and least responsible for any of this will die first. it's very convenient for the people at the top

if the population is the problem, or you say it's about "carrying capacity" as if that's a fixed number (as i have seen other people with similar arguments do), then you make it seem like it's inevitable that people will die until we're back at that "carrying capacity"

if you were highlighting the catastrophic consequence why didn't you mention it at all? you just mentioned a hypothetical where there were fewer people you put the emphasis on population which in practice just serves to paint mass death as inevitable

this malthusian BS is just a pre-emptive rationalization for how we couldn't have helped all the deaths that will happen if climate change continues apace

"just saying" that things would be OK if we ~somehow~ had 6.7 billion fewer people

because why else would you raise that hypothetical? do you think we have the time for population to lower naturally? or are you just going to watch as climate change kills people (starting with the most vulnerable and least responsible) and mutter "oh, it can't be helped"

just saying what? that we should kill over six billion people, or let them die?

the problem here is that a lot of the people on top don't even WANT everyone to do this kind of stuff, they just think they should be an exception
