In the 184 page document addressed to all the people in the world, the Pope points out that care of the earth is a moral and spiritual concern for everyone rather than just a matter of science, politics and/or economics.

He calls for urgent action in dealing with the interconnected problems which have caused the environmental crisis which affects the whole world.
