Pope Francis’ Encyclical: 3
In Laudato Si  the Pope points out that the ecological crisis is caused by us, by human activity and not by nature. 
Technological developments have given us tremendous power, but this has given us the illusion that growth can be unlimited, and the false notion that there is an infinite supply of the earth's goods (par. 106).
Simply relying on indefinite market growth is not the answer, and is often part of the problem, leading to imbalances, maldistribution of wealth, and lack of concern for sustainability and the rights of future generations. 
So the Pope concludes, we need a different type of progress, more healthier, more social more integrated (par. 112). (par. 113), rejecting a consumerist vision of human beings.
  Catholics, and others, have to develop radically new lifestyles.
