Personally I agree with all 10 of the messages and think they are all important but there is 3 that stand out the most to me. The first one is that Laudato Si “is now added to the body of the Church’s social teaching. Laudato Si is a “systematic” approach to the problem and is finally a guideline put out by religion so it does not have a economical bias.
Second the Pope links all human beings to creation. We are part of nature, included in it, and thus in constant interaction with it. But our decisions have an inevitable effect on the environment. A pursuit of money that sets aside the interests of the environment..
Lastly more than any other environmental guideline, Laudato Si is made from the information from bishops from Brazil, New Zealand, Southern Africa and other places. The pope invites into dialogue and debate all people about our common home and the common good. People should not have the freedom to destroy the environment for the future generations because it is unfair to the people of the future and animals being affected by climate change.People should think about what there life would be like if it was filled with trash and unsustainable for life and why we would put a future generation in a bad position. A way to help our growing environmental problems is with carbon tax. The Main reason for carbon tax is to lower greenhouse-gas emissions.
The tax charges a fee on fossil fuels based on how much carbon they release when burned. So in order to reduce the fees, utilities, business and individuals attempt to use less energy from fossil fuels. If people ignore the tax and keep using large amounts of fossil fuels, the money will be put back into the economy so money from the rich can be used to help the whole community so there is no downfall to a carbon tax law being passed. An individual might switch to public transportation and change incandescent bulbs with CFL bulbs that are better for the environment.
A business could increase energy efficiency by installing new appliances or updating heating and cooling systems.
