Transformers and environmentalism - yeeeaaah. It is true that the Transformers, depending on which universe you go by, were looking for resources. The central theme was about freedom - those who fight for/against it - not environmentalism, so it is quite a stretch to lump it in with other environmental thematic movies. Overall, the article has an interesting point, but definitely stretches some things to support its hypothesis.
Still, at least the movie is getting some attention. I can't understand why Paramount is not marketing the movie a lot more, considering that July 4th is not far away (using marketers' reckoning).
