Do We Have This Already? I looked on the politics trope page but couldn't find it.

This is a trope for those well meaning but crazy individuals that take environmentalism to absurd and possibly criminal lengths, these people will bomb oil pipelines, violently disrupt development and accuse anybody who disagrees with them of being in the pocket of Big Business.

Related to Animal Wrongs Group, and sometimes overlaps if they are making a fuss over wildlife in particular. May overlap with Evil Luddite if they believe that technology is inherently a threat to the environment and want to get rid of it.

Was inspired by this Not Always Right entry.
