George is a writer known for his environmental and political activism. He writes a weekly column for The Guardian and is the author of a number of books including Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain, Feral: Searching for Enchantment on the Frontiers of Rewilding and Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics in the Age of Crisis. He is the founder of The Land is Ours, a campaign for the right of access to the countryside and its resources in the United Kingdom.
George is vegan, implying a sentiocentric moral scope, although his primary motivation was environmental. In 2020, while making the film Apocalypse Cow, he shot a deer, seemily justifying the killing for bio/ecocentric reasons that undermined his sentiocentric compassion. He seems to have a naturalistic worldview.
