Not at all. I can understand where one could surmise this given
environmentalist scare-tactic mass appeal lacking our favored "critical
thinking." Yet, "anti" is a strong prefix and its psychological
ramifications would be a bit entropy gathering.

Rather, an extropian view on environmental issues can be clearly realized
through two definitive writings by both Chris Peterson and Greg Burch.
Greg's extropian environmental ideas and can be found at and Chris Peterson's writing can
be located in the proceedings of Extro 3. (Perhaps someone else knows a
URL for her writings on this subject.)
