Environmental Jihadists

I like Gus Van Horn's term "environmental jihadist" since it connotes both the religious (i.e. dogmatic) nature of the environmentalists and their willingness to use force to suppress any arguments against them. Moreover, the story to which he refers again highlights: that the battle is much deeper than just a question of science and that it is literally an issue of life or death -- not a quaint discussion among "well-meaning" participants as many would have us believe.

(PS I realize that Gus uses the word warming, but I think it applies to all the environmentalists; whether they're promoting malaria by banning DDT, promoting middle-east killers by shutting down domestic nukes, promoting fires by outlawing asbestos, etc., etc.)

You're too modest here. Your more general phrase is an improvement on mine!
