Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Just because you're "green" doesn't mean you can't have strong opinions on other issues. I imagine the split between "left" and "right" greens is similar to the difference between "social liberal" and "right-liberal" parties. Some countries have no liberal party, some have one with two wings, and some have two.

By "conservative greens" do you mean a hunting/fishing/rural party, or an economic liberal green party?

Bush is a symptom, not the disease.

You know, I'm not sure exactly...Lil has been a Green for a long time here in St Gallen, and I will have to ask her...but my sense was that here it was almost a personality/ideology difference, ie., that the Left Greens were more progressive, even radical in how they thought about environmental issues and approaches. The "conservative" side seemed much more cautious and controlled. But surely it is more than this...I'll check it out...

Sounds like Fundis vs. Realos.
