The idea that humans must live within the natural environmental limits of our planet denies the realities of our entire history, and most likely the future.

Humans are niche creators. We transform ecosystems to sustain ourselves. Our planet’s human-carrying capacity emerges from the capabilities of our social systems and our technologies more than from any environmental limits.

It is time for all of us to wake up to the limits we really face: the social and technological systems that sustain us need improvement.

There is no environmental reason for people to go hungry now or in the future. There is no need to use any more land to sustain humanity. ... The environment will be what we make it.

Environmentalists [can be seen as] being split into three groups:

Light greens see protecting the environment first and foremost as a personal responsibility. ... They often focus on environmentalism as a lifestyle choice.

Dark greens believe that environmental problems are an inherent part of industrialized capitalism, and seek radical political change.

Bright greens believe that radical changes are needed in the economic and political operation of society in order to make it sustainable, but that better designs, new technologies and more widely distributed social innovations are the means to make those changes - and that society can neither shop nor protest its way to sustainability.

To what degree are these types reflected in, say, the Austrian Green party?
