This is a short book that consist of two essays on the "green" elements in Germany, before, during and after the Nazi regime. If you can get beyond the authors warnings of the"dangers" of "right wing" (why do so many morons keep calling Nazis right wing? Do these idiots even know what right wing is?) environmentalists co-opting the ecology movement you actually get some good historical stuff about the Pagan Volkish movement as well as other environmental idealogues who did not toe the line of political correctness over the years in Germany.

The biggest problem in the environmental movement is that more or less all the well known groups toe the politically correct line and refuse to confront the fact that the biggest cause of the environmental crisis is due to human overpopulation, especially in third world countries, and they refuse to deal with the devastating effects that immigration has on the ecology of countries where there is an excess of it going on.

Conservation of forests and nature, eating healthy, animal rights, organic farming, living away from society, not having an uptight attitude about sex, worshipping your own ancestral gods instead of the gods of semites, localized socialism and self sufficency, these were all common themes and practices in the early days and origins of the nazi party. Most of these things were not practiced or even thought about at that time in history until the Volkish movement in Germany popped up. The hippies and environmentalists picked up on a lot of these ideas, although 99% were totally clueless of their origins.
