What shade of green are you? en.wikipedia.org

Submitted by Mullvaden in Green

This is a "new" way of looking at environmentalism for me. I'm leaning more towards a "bright green" stance because I see lifestylism as a liberal fraud and many of the deep ecology ideas as essentially anti-human.

Some mix of dark green and "there's no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism". If it was viable to just go live in the woods for the rest of my life I would but I also need a job where I need a car and power hungry computers. I know its a major fucking problem and try to do what I can when I can.

pretty deep green but probably not as deep as most here. "bright green" anarchism just seems like a slightly more ecologically focused variant of classical anarchism, which is cool and all, but it doesn't really get to the crux of the problem of how technologies function as tools for social control.

Interesting little idea, I knew the Green Party sometimes sepertae themselves between the Watermelons (Green on outside Red on inside) and the Avacados (Green on outside and in)

I would probobly describe myself as a mix between Dark Green and Bright Green for much the same reasons as you said Deep Ecology Ideas can be very anti-human. However I do belive that we do need to take our own personal steps to influence change at a greater level so I can't say I completely disavow Lifestylism in this regard.

I'm a bright green, but I don't innovation and regulation alone are enough to stop climate change. First, we need to get rid of capitalism. So, I'm a bright green, with communist characteristics. (If communism's color is red, and green and red mixed together is yellow, does that make me a bright yellow?)

Deep with bright streaks. I think technology can be a valuable crutch towards averting catastrophe, but ultimately the only way out of this mess is making a conscious decision as a species to reject our predecessors' mistakes. Junk the cars, tear down the skyscrapers, rebuild something better from the ruins before it all blows up in our faces.
