Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think my comment would fit here. Fran

If you look at the things that really make you happy ...well (me) they are not that energy expensive.

Actually, you do not need that much clothes.. or that much so and so..

You just need a good flat (which actually it turns out that the more efficiente hte better)..and some culture-relation item (phones or internet conenction or activities or books)

I think the key component to get poorer are cars and chemichals...

I am absolutely rich in every field just becuase I do not have to pay a car. I can afford very high quality  ,very low-chemciahl food, I can afford to go to discos, restaurants as much as I want.: I can travel by train as much as I want...and just the right maount of clothes...and I do not earn that much money actually

And regarding chemichals, I just do not need boxes and boxes... and I have to use it because some parts of the supermarket like fruit areas force me.. I just do not need them..

So I am not so sure we would need to be much poorer to make living sustainable... not that sure.. if you take out the car and take public transport,a nd take out chemichals as much as you can..

A pleasure
