The encyclical letter Laudato Si is available here on the Vatican website. The science & tech model, to the exclusion of other considerations has been shown not good for either the environment or for human culture:
107. It can be said that many problems of today’s world stem from the tendency, at times unconscious, to make the method and aims of science and technology an epistemological paradigm which shapes the lives of individuals and the workings of society. The effects of imposing this model on reality as a whole, human and social, are seen in the deterioration of the environment, but this is just one sign of a reductionism which affects every aspect of human and social life. We have to accept that technological products are not neutral, for they create a framework which ends up conditioning lifestyles and shaping social possibilities along the lines dictated by the interests of certain powerful groups. Decisions which may seem purely instrumental are in reality decisions about the kind of society we want to build.
The challenge is not that scientific achievement is bad, but that any single aspect of human culture by itself is an incomplete expression of the fullness of humanity. Modern culture often avoids the needed dialogue between paradigms. We see it inside the Church as well: a self-limiting of our full potential.
