Bret Stephens, New York Times: People like Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein have made careers saying more or less the same thing - that affluence is not our greatest achievement but our biggest problem. This is a world where the clock is permanently set at two minutes to midnight, and where only a radical transformation of modern society (usually combining dramatic changes in personal behavior along with a heavy dose of state intervention) can save us. Above all, the Vogtians say, we need less: less consumption, less stuff, fewer people, and so on.

This ride in the beautiful countryside of Prince Edward Island, Canada and others like it are available to many. With better urban planning, it can be available to all. No need for "grand, save the world schemes" by self-proclaimed Prometheans who claim they can turn back the doomsday clock just in time.
