Pope Francis: Consumerism, not overpopulation destroys the environment

Original source

“To blame population growth instead of extreme and selective consumerism on the part of some, is one way of refusing to face the issues…It is an attempt to legitimize the present model of distribution, where a minority believes that it has the right to consume in a way which can never be universalized, since the planet could not even contain the waste products of such consumption.”
