Greens, greens nothing but greens

After doing some online research, I think that it is really important for me to state my interest in land preservation not conservation. While I do feel that both are very important and I am not opposed to either, I am interested in preservation because it addresses unique issues in human interaction with the environment. Preservation is focused on setting aside land, while conservation deals with creating a balance between industrialization and maintaining a harmony with the natural environment.

I learned that environmentalists are divided into three groups: dark greens, light greens and bright greens- which seems to basically distinguish levels of intensity in terms of activism.
