The relationship of human beings with nature has been changing. According to the Biblical narrative of the beginning, Man should take care of nature, not master or dominate it. This "oppressive" domination over the universe has undergone profound changes in the structure of the planet. Environmental deterioration is advancing at an overwhelming pace, putting current generations and especially future generations at risk. This Article describes environmental refugees as victims to whom the "common house" has become an "in-common house". Our analysis relies on the narrative of the Genesis and on Pope Francis' Encyclical Laudato Si, proposing a human sense of ecology.
