As ever with enviro-scholars, Professor Markham knoweth not what he hath wrought.
Germany is driving the Climate Change campaign.
Many major international enviro-organizations (Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Birdlife International, etc.) are controlled by their German chapters.
Several militant leaders of Germanys confrontational early-1980s environmentalist protests were, a decade later, running government ministries.
While Germanys big enviro-organizations masquerade as citizens crusades, they are in fact top-down bureaucracies full of cynical well-paid careerists who work in tandem with state and corporate elites.
Only 40 (forty) persons within Greenpeace-Germanys half million members may vote for the board of directors. WWF-Germany has a self-perpetuating board and zero internal democracy.
The League for Homeland and Environment, League for Nature Protection, and League for Environment and Nature Protection have intertwined histories, memberships, and goals. They were reactionaries before, and raving Nazis during, the Third Reich. Collectively they now have one million supporters spread over 4,000 local clubs. These are mainstream German enviro-organizations.
Although it came as a revelation to Professor Markham, beneath the surface of Germanys 9,000 mainstream enviro-organizations lurks a huge sub-movement that can only be described as Neo-Nazi. Markham concludes this sub-movement retains the potential to take over the entire movement ...

One of the primary pushers on this movment was Guenther Schwab, a former Austrian Nazi forester.

It doesn’t surprise me considering that a German invented the study of ecology, supposedly.
In 1866, the father of German Social Darwinism, Ernst Haeckel, coined the term ‘ecology.’ In those days, biology ran ecology. Today ecology is running biology. The racist element has been removed from the environmental movement. Now there is misanthropy directed toward people in general.
