Outshining the environment

This week, a blasting UN Report Assessment yelled out that over 1M species are at risk of extinction, but was outshone by the birth of the new royal baby in the UK
We care about kids but we also tremendously care about the survival of animal and plant species. Anyway, we’re glad that the Guardian understood the relevance of such assessment.
It’s worth noting that the assessment reflects on the current conservation strategies, such as the creation of protected areas. [They are] “well-intended but inadequate”.
Instead, [it’s more important to focus on] “a shift in incentives, investments in green infrastructure, accounting for nature deterioration in international trade, addressing population growth and unequal levels of consumption, greater cooperation across sectors, new environmental laws and stronger enforcement”.
So, putting nature in front of everything doesn’t work. We need a more solid and well-integrated ecological culture and society. Religion is not excluded, and that brings us to the next GreenMarked event. Two meetings of ecological catechesis were two environmental scientists, a priest and the community of Mezzocorona discuss about environmentalism in the Bible based on the encyclical Laudato Sii of Pope Francis.
