Some that come to my mind also include:

NOLOGIC
NOCOMMONSENSE
NOBRAINERS

or the triple-name evoking memories of three monkeys:

SEENOSENSEHEARNOSENSESPEAKNOSENSE.

The other part of me sees the group as:

HOWCANIGETTHEIRGOAT,

which makes me think that maybe the best response to
nonsense is none at all?

I had fun thinking about these names, though, so making
fun at their expense seems a reasonable response too.

SERIOUSLY HOWEVER,
One part of me thinks that the REAL person behind the
name is a true environmentalist.  By making ridiculous
claims and dismissing logical human thought, this
environmentalist is making fun of anti-environmentalists
and portraying them as idiots.  The effort of this person
has resulted in some of us expressing the logic of the
environmental movement in a public forum, thus giving
an even greater voice to the environmental movement.
As a result, some of us have spoken about this thread in
our classrooms, focusing our efforts in teaching and
outreach on the environmental movement.  In other words,
whoever NOENVIRON is, their efforts have strengthened
the environmental movement.  My message to them is:
keep up the good work!
