What are the origins of Eco-terrorism?


In the United States, since the nineteen seventies to be exact, various groups have lobbied for tight legal protection for the environment. However, change in favor of the protection of the environment has been slow to evolve, and thus certain prominent environmentally radical individuals have become frustrated by the lack of change and in turn have become violent, and created various eco terrorist organizations in order to stop those acts it views as abusive to the environment.


Eco terrorists most often carry out their actions through independent “cells” that are operated in various locations all around the country and thus are extremely difficult to uncover or curtail.
