Green thinking has become an important and distinctive political philosophy, presenting a profound challenge to longer established political creeds. While its roots can be traced back to precursors, such as pantheism, romanticism and the rediscovery of nature, Malthusianism, and elements of anarchism, it is a relatively new ideology. It has brought together a number of more specific concerns - over, for example, conservation, pollution, energy, population growth and climate change - and woven these together into a coherent and distinctive political philosophy, which, in a comparatively brief period, has achieved a significant impact. As with other ideologies, there are problems of definition and terminology.
