"a correct understanding of the relationship between man and the environment will not end by absolutizing nature or by considering it more important than the human person. If the Church's magisterium expresses grave misgivings about notions of the environment inspired by ecocentrism and biocentrism, it is because such notions eliminate the difference of identity and worth between the human person and other living things. In the name of a supposedly egalitarian vision of the 'dignity' of all living creatures, such notions end up abolishing the distinctiveness and superior role of human beings. They also open the way to a new pantheism tinged with neo-paganism, which would see the source of man's salvation in nature alone, understood in purely naturalistic terms" (Pope Benedict XVI’s Message for the 2010 World Day of Peace)
We need to carefully vet philosophical/theological. ideas. The NY Post (3/26/23) reminds us that "belief in eugenics was rampant among early conservationists, with figures such as Gifford Pinchot, Irving Fisher, President Teddy Roosevelt and others promoting the noxious ideas associated with the movement, such as the sterilization of the poor or disabled." Pope Francis' Laudato Si also offers cautions of what may be in the big climate/ecological/environmental/green tent.
