People must end the “senseless war against creation

“People must end the “senseless war against creation” and help victims of environmental and climate injustice”, Pope Francis said.
This sentence was the opening one in the news article. Nothing else about the meaning of creation or the creator in the article other than some ambiguous comments like “It is imperative, he added, that
people “harmonize our own rhythms of life with those of creation, which gives us life.” I humbly ask the Pope what does HH mean by “those of creation which gives us life”? May be HH meant air, water, land and the like. But do they give us lives? Or is it God Who does, as HH mentioned later? God has provided those elements to sustain life, not to give life.
HH added “Unfortunately, the heartbeats of so many people do not beat in harmony with the heartbeat of creation and God; “they are not harmonized in justice and peace.”. Again, I join HH in this call, whether he meant in a literal or metaphorical way.
I also, with great deal of humility and love, ask HH and the Catholic Church, to stop the war against creation as the Bible narrated it , and do not compromise the faith in the Bible to accommodate false science.
