9. No, I think the author wants people to attack the industrial infrastructure

to bring down industrial civilisation. The idea is to prevent anyone from having industries that can mine, build dams, solar panels, turbines, electricity and communications grids, powered vehicles, and so on. They are all dangerous, to the author, and must not be allowed.

The author(s?) think the chaos this would produce is a price that has to be paid for the sake of the planet. They seem to think that once industrial civilisation has been destroyed, no-one would want to start it again - or that they and their successors would be able to organise to prevent it.
