1. Eco-terrorism is a crime committed to save nature. The crime must have the characteristics of terrorism as defined by the FBI. To begin with, eco-terrorism had no separate definition and crimes were investigated and prosecuted under the general definition of terrorism:
Terrorism is the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.

2. Terrorism that actually seems to have a reasonable backing. Done to make the idiotic governments realize that their asses aren't the only ones in danger and that the earth matters, too. Like all terrorism it achieves no end except to make people afraid of you and the goverment pissed as hell.
3. Eco-terroist~ VERY extreme environmentalist who resorts to violence and the destruction of property to get his/her message across.
