Chapter Three THE HUMAN ROOTS OF THE ECOLOGICAL CRISIS [101-136]

I have begun to publish sections and segments of the Popes letter on OUR network of blogs as well as on Linkedin & Quora & Newsvine and will add my comments over time. Papa Francisco's 180 page letter is much less about religion than it is about nature and the planet earth. He proposes some fairly radical yet simple and understandable solutions for humankind. It is way past time to start paying attention to what we are all doing or allowing others to do.

101. It would hardly be helpful to describe
symptoms without acknowledging the human
origins of the ecological crisis. A certain way
of understanding human life and activity has
gone awry, to the serious detriment of the world
around us. Should we not pause and consider
this? At this stage, I propose that we focus
on the dominant technocratic paradigm and the
place of human beings and of human action in
the world.
