Pentti Linkola is a writer/fisherman from Finland who is the sort of environmentalist who gives environmentalism a bad name. The hardest of the hard greens, he believes society should completely de-industrialize and human population should drop to a small fraction of its current numbers.
He is sort of the Fred Phelps of the environmental movement. Even most other hard greens want nothing to do with him.
 Specific views
He has been known to advocate eugenics and praise the idea of World War III as a depopulation measure: "If there were a button I could press, I would sacrifice myself without hesitating, if it meant millions of people would die." Likewise, he has defended the Holocaust - "We even have to be able to re-evaluate the fascism and confess the service that that philosophy made 30 years ago when it freed the earth from the weight of tens of millions of over-nourished Europeans, 6 million of them by ideally painless means, without any damage to the environment." - and the 2004 Madrid bombings: "Every act which disrupts the progress of Earth's life destroying Western culture is positive."
