Pope Francis’ Climate Change Encyclical Leaked Four Days Early
#9
Not every papal document is going to be on serious spiritual matters. Because of the significant temporal authority that popes have historically had, no doubt many papal documents have been published simply to address temporal matters that were completely itrelevant to those living outside the Papal territory.

It is good to care for the environment. God made it, and we can glorify Him by making a reasonable effort to keep it beautiful and to help others do the same. It is only the means to an end though, not the end in itself.  It becomes idolatrous (i.e. sinful) when people begin to see it as the end rather than the means.
