Note this release for World Environment Day last week: http://www.zenit.org/article-19824?l=english

In particular, there is a call to be free from the conditionings of a Malthusian environmentalist culture:

 "According to the president of Sorella Natura, Roberto Leoni, only with a new culture founded on Christian virtues "will the initiatives of legislators develop, free from the conditionings of a fatalist and Malthusian environmentalist culture." "

I believe Darwin was strongly influenced by Malthus. Does Leoni imply that Malthus's observations have moved from descriptive to prescriptive in our culture and that we need to reverse this based on Christian virtures?
