I do sort of like examples like this that expose how some environmentalists are just anti civilization, and place the natural state of things on a religious level.

That's a stretch. All that article says is that the Sierra Club, et al, want the complex's location moved slightly, for what sounds like a plausible reason to me. It isn't "religious" to think that consideration should be made when siting new infrastructure projects, even if the new project has a more green-friendly tinge to it.

What seems more like religion is your unwarranted extrapolation of the story into support for your own biases.

I wouldn't blame that last on religion, it's older. Human nature.
