  Ecology movement Summary
Although the growth of the science of ecology and concern for the environment converged toward the middle of the twentieth century, ecology should not be confused with "environmentalism,"; although environmentalists and ecologists today accept the idea that a species can be wiped out by the destruction of their fragile ecosystem.
Ecology, the scientific study of relationships in the natural environment, is often confused with "environmentalism,"; a concern with conserving the natural environment by protecting it from the adverse affects of human use.
The global ecology movement is one of several new social movements that emerged at the end of the sixties; as a values-driven social movement, it should be distinguished from the pre-existing science of ecology.

  Deep ecology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Deep ecology is a recent philosophy or ecosophy based on a shift away from the anthropocentric bias of established environmental and green movements.
The philosophy of deep ecology helped differentiate the modern ecology movement by pointing out the anthropocentric bias of the term "environment", and rejecting the idea of humans as authoritarian guardians of the environment.
The term shallow ecology was coined at the same time as deep ecology by Arne Næss, who critiqued shallow ecology for having a utilitarian and anthropocentric attitude to nature and having a materialist and consumer-oriented outlook.

 Ecology - Simple English Wikipedia
Ecology is the science studying the interactions of organisms with their environment and with one another.
Ecology, biology and other Life Sciences overlap with zoology and geography, which describe the things that ecology tries to predict, and energy economics which describes mostly human food chains and trophic levels.
Ecology gave birth to many powerful philosophical and political movements - including the conservation movement, wellness movement, environmental movement, and ecology movement we know today.

 The ordination of a tree: The Buddhist ecology movement in Thailand[1]
ECOLOGY MONKS In Thailand, the self-proclaimed ecology monks (phra nak anuraksa) are at the core of the Buddhist ecology movement.
Their movement does not advocate a new form of Buddhism, they argue, but is an effort to put the basic ideas of the religion in terms that meet the needs of the modern world.
While the scriptural justifications behind the ecology movement are important to understand, the practice which accompanies or motivates the re-examination of the canon demonstrates that the process cannot be examined solely on an abstract theological level.

 Deep Ecology Movement: Arne Naess Pictures, Quotes, Ecosophy
Deep Ecology is a movement which promotes an awareness of the oneness and interconnection of all life and its cycles of change and transformation.
Deep Ecology is rooted in a perception of reality that goes beyond the scientific framework to an intuitive awareness of the oneness of all life, the interdependence of its multiple manifestations and its cycles of change and transformation.
It sets up ecology as a model for the basic metaphysical structure of the world, seeing the identities of all things- whether at the level of elementary particles, organisms, or galaxies- as logically interconnected: all things are constituted by their relations with other things..

Ecology and Movement of the Wheat Curl Mite
The management of this mite is complicated by its ability to move, and the study of the movement of this mite is complicated by the size of the mite.
During the last two seasons we have monitored mite movement in different areas through the season and have found differences between the level of movement found in an area where wheat is the primary crop and in areas of where irrigated corn is one of the major rotational crops.

 Deep ecology Arne Naess
The heart of Deep Ecology is its platform, which consists of a number of inter-related factual and normative claims about humans and their relations with the rest of nature.
The platform was intended as a description of a Deep Ecology social movement and as a basis for a larger unity among all those who accept the importance of non-anthropocentrism and understand that this entails radical social change.
The Deep Ecology movement reflects a man-in-environment image, and favors a relational, holistic view of the world in all its diversity of life and cultures.

 Deep Ecology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The emergence of deep ecology and its coincidence with the emergence of radical movements of the 1960s, and the way it has given these movements a spiritual/ethical dimension, and added to their radicalisation, is a pointer to the future direction.
Deep ecology is supported by modern science, and in particular by the new systems approach, but it is rooted in a perception of reality that goes beyond the scientific framework to an intuitive awareness of the oneness of all life, the interdependence of its multiple manifestations and its cycles of change and transformation.
For growing numbers of converts, deep ecology is the religion of the new millennium, the new ethics, the new morality, a return to the chthonic world-view of vernacular man, part of the paradigm shift to a new ecological world-view.

 Deep ecology Summary
Deep ecology is a recent philosophy or ecosophy based on a shift away from the anthropocentric bias of established environmental and green movements.
Deep ecology describes itself as "deep" because it is concerned with fundamental philosophical questions about the role of human life as one part of the ecosphere, in distinction to ecology as a branch of biological science, and to merely utilitarian environmentalism based on the well-being of humans alone.
The term shallow ecology was coined at the same time as deep ecology by Arne Næss, who critiqued shallow ecology for having a utilitarian and anthropocentric attitude to nature and having a materialist and consumer-oriented outlook.

 ScienceDaily: New 'Movement Ecology' Discipline Takes Off
Movement ecology is a developing academic pursuit, combining expertise in a variety of fields, including biology, ecology, botany, environmental science, physics, mathematics, virology and others.
Nathan emphasizes that organism movement research is central to the understanding of how ecological systems work and has important implications for human life.
A comprehensive understanding of movement as a process will help to conserve biodiversity, adapt to changes produced by global warming, and cope with environmental threats such as infectious diseases, invasive alien species, agricultural pests and the spread of allergens.

 Church of Deep Ecology -
In forming cross cultural global movements some general consensus develops that focuses the movement through platform principles (as is the case for many movements--literary, philosophical, social, political, etc.), such as the principles of social justice, or the principles of peace and nonviolence, or the principles for the deep ecology movement (DEM).
Movements so described have their principles emerge from the bottom up and are thus called grass roots movements (as in the Gandhian tradition), not top down power over hierarchies.
He explained that the distinctive aspects of the deep ecology movement is its recognition of the inherent value of all other living beings, and of the inherent worth of diversity of all kinds.

 Social Ecology versus Deep Eclogy
The very words deep ecology, in fact, clue is into the fact that we are not dealing with a body of clear ideas but with a bottomless pit in which vague notions and moods of all kinds can be such into the depths of an ideological toxic dump.
Implicit in deep ecology is the notion that a "humanity" exists that accurses the natural world; that individual selfhood must be transformed into a cosmic "Selfhood" that essentially transcends the person and his or her uniqueness.
To social ecology, nature is natural evolution, not a cosmic arrangement of beings frozen in a moment of eternity to be abjectly revered, adored, and worshiped like the gods and goddesses that priests and priestesses place above us in a realm of supernature that subverts the naturalistic integrity of an authentic ecology.

 Deep ecology - Encyclopedia of Earth
The term was first used by the Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess in 1972 in his paper "The Shallow and the Deep, Long-Range Ecology Movement." The term was intended to call for a fundamental rethinking of environmental thought that would go far beyond anthropocentric (human-centered) and reform environmentalism that sought merely to adjust environmental policy.
Deep ecology began as a critique of the “shallow ecology” of anthropocentric conservationism, epitomized by Gifford Pinchot, who saw the Earth as a set of natural resources that need to be managed for present and future generations of humans.
Similarly, it has criticized deep ecology’s general neglect of social problems that are caused by the logic of domination, in which some social groups are assumed to have more value and have the right to control and use others, the same logic of domination that fuels environmental destruction.

 Deep Ecology: Philosophy of Deep Ecology: Environmental Deep Ecology - Downbound.com
Deep ecology is an offshoot of the ecology movement.
These are distinguishable from the more limited and generic view of a deep ecology which includes human beings as an inherent organ of Earth, the Gaia philosophy which sees the Earth itself as one living thing, and the more limited goals of the scientific ecology movement, political environmental movement, and aesthetic conservation movement.
Deep ecology exercised relatively little influence on Green parties, political ecologists, environmentalists, the peace movement and the ecology movement, which were busy trying to prevent human extinction via nuclear war or other weapons of mass destruction.

 Ecofascism / Fascist Ideology: The Green Wing of the Nazi Party and its Historical Antecedents by Peter Staudenmaier   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The various strands of the youth movement shared a common self-conception: they were a purportedly 'non-political' response to a deep cultural crisis, stressing the primacy of direct emotional experience over social critique and action.
The youth movement did not simply fail in its chosen form of protest, it was actively realigned when its members went over to the Nazis by the thousands.
This is, perhaps, the unavoidable trajectory of any movement which acknowledges and opposes social and ecological problems but does not recognize their systemic roots or actively resist the political and economic structures which generate them.

If there is anything fascinating about "Earth First!" as a movement and especially as a periodical, it is the fact that the periodical does go from "A" to "Z" and draws all the logical conclusions from "deep ecology," conclusions that Devall and Sessions often bury with metaphors, sutras, poetic evocations, and pretensions.
