without getting into the variations and deviations of what could be considered fascism, I'll start with 3 common elements stated on wiki (via Stanley G. Payne) :

1. the "fascist negations": anti-liberalism, anti-communism, and anti-conservatism.
2. "fascist goals": the creation of a nationalist dictatorship to regulate economic structure and to transform social relations within a modern, self-determined culture, and the expansion of the nation into an empire.
3. "fascist style": a political aesthetic of romantic symbolism, mass mobilization, a positive view of violence, and promotion of masculinity, youth, and charismatic authoritarian leadership.

I'll go with Pentti Linkola's solution as they are the only thinker I'm aware of that has been referred to as actually eco-fascist:

1. they certainly are those, however they seem pretty conservative, and are ecologically conservationist.
2. they certainly want a totalitarian police state to violently regulate (well, abolish really) economic structure, and reform social relations. however, they envision a pre-modern anti-technological existence that contracts rather than expands.
3. not sure their style. I assume going back to traditional aesthetics. violence is talked about as an absolute necessity rather than a positive outcome. they don't like overweight people.

so maybe eco-fascist? certainly eco-totalitarian.
