blereader | 5 comments “Por ejemplo, muchos pájaros e insectos que des-aparecen a causa de los agrotóxicos creados por la tecnología son útiles a la misma agricultura, y su desaparición deberá ser sustituida con otra in-tervención tecnológica, que posiblemente traerá nuevos efectos nocivos. Son loables y a veces ad-mirables los esfuerzos de científicos y técnicosque tratan de aportar soluciones a los problemas creados por el ser humano. Pero mirando el mun-do advertimos que este nivel de intervención hu-mana, frecuentemente al servicio de las finanzasy del consumismo, hace que la tierra en que vivi-mos en realidad se vuelva menos rica y bella, cada vez más limitada y gris, mientras al mismo tiem-po el desarrollo de la tecnología y de las ofertas de consumo sigue avanzando sin límite. De este modo, parece que pretendiéramos sustituir una belleza irreemplazable e irrecuperable, por otra creada por nosotros.”

This should not be "Anonymous" and no book attribution. It's from Laudato Si, Alabado Seas, del Papa Francicso.

You can find the quote by going to Community>Quotes, then search for "Por ejemplo, muchos pájaros e insectos que" in the search box.

blereader | 5 comments Also, whoever typed this quote made some typographical errors (e.g., "finanzasy"), and the hyphens are not needed.

ETA Ah sorry, I see you posted how to find the quote here (misread it at first).

blereader | 5 comments Does each quote have a permalink? I'll admit that the only way I know how to find quotes is by using the search box.

(I'm not going to edit it, since I'm not sure how Pope Francis should be quoted.)

On the quote page, the default edition, in this case that is the English edition, is shown.
