growing pains

Sorry but this isnt really about music.. but am just noodling away after having turned on the tv whilst putting away a month's load of washing..
Newsnight was on and i found myself tuning into a discussion on climate change and economc 'growth'. Cos for ages I have considered the word 'growth' as a bit of dirty word.. like when the news reports that "consumer spending is up" its like encouraging a foul disease in my high n mighty opinion. But AT LAST HALELLUJIA (how do you spell that?) the big guys are talking about the need to slow growth in the traditional sense to tackle our planet's problems, and instead find a new SUSTAINABLE type of growth which does not necessarily use more energy and resources, just more labour.
Obvious init? Back to the good old days?
