From my perspective, little has been lost or gained in your above analysis of the current trends of "environmentalism."
The "real" issues have been a part of my worldview for more than 50 years. I first heard the word "eco-system" in a freshman college course in the '60s.
The "environmental movement" has remained about as anemic of force since then as it is now. In fact, it rivals the "peace movement" in its many failures to model any viable, global solutions over these decades.
Maybe, the time has come when the liberty-lovers take the lead and add Nature to our agenda of systems that need to be restored.
In fact, the NAP is rarely thought of to also apply to the other millions of species. This idea alone could start a nice, little paradigm shift.
