At first glance they seem to be parodies - especially vhemt - but I got the distinct impression that they are quite serious. The key for me was the interview between the leader of the one organization & a representative
of the other.

Neither group - er, sorry, movement - loves Our Mother the Earth quite enough to quietly off themselves (this would seem to be the honorable thing
to do given their belief set). No, no, they justify their continued existence (and concommitant destruction of Our Mother the Earth) with their purpose of trying to get others to off themselves first (don't worry, we'll be right behind you, no really we will).
