The incongruity, of course, is that it is news
to these people that environmentalism’s ultimate goal

First they demand we give up cars. Then they do the math and realize that we should actually give up cheeseburgers. Then it's on to a diet of a loose, flavorless (what with all the shipping for exotic spice), vegetable sludge. The inevitable conclusion is that we should stop eating altogether

The thing that really gets me is how earnest
they are about it – they actually believe
