The argument of the paper is that environmental problems are a direct consequence of a certain Weltanschauung Christianism brought into Western societies.

Fairly simple solutions exist for the large ecological problems generated by the intrusion of humanity in the ecosphere, including at the limit an almost complete withdrawal.

Because cultural changes have long time constants, there is no hope of short-term application of the solutions. Ecologists have to learn thinking long term and recognize that perseverance is more important than argument.
