A delicate balance has to be maintained when speaking about these places, for we cannot overlook the huge global economic interests which, under the guise of protecting them, can undermine the sovereignty of individual nations. The God who created the universe out of nothing can also intervene in this world and overcome every form of evil.

It follows that the fragmentation of knowledge and the isolation of bits of information can actually become a form of ignorance, unless they are integrated into a broader vision of reality. We all know that it is not possible to sustain the present level of consumption in developed countries and wealthier sectors of society, where the habit of wasting and discarding has reached unprecedented levels.

It is the first time a pope addresses the issue of ecology in the sense of an integral ecology as it goes beyond the environment in such a complete way.

La última encíclica papal destaca que justicia y ecología son una misma cosa

Laws may be well framed yet remain a dead letter. Today, the analysis of environmental problems cannot be separated from the analysis of human, family, work-related and urban contexts, nor from how individuals relate to themselves, which leads in turn to how they relate to others and to the environment.

The extreme poverty experienced in areas lacking harmony, open spaces or potential for integration, can lead to incidents of brutality and to exploitation by criminal organizations. We lack leadership capable of striking out on new paths and meeting the needs of the present with concern for all and without prejudice towards coming generations. Caring for ecosystems demands far-sightedness, since no one looking for quick and easy profit is truly interested in their preservation.
