Anyone who is worried about CO2 and its proposed effect on the atmosphere should be dead set against any cutting down of trees. Trees are a store of carbon and they also pull CO2 from the air. Almost too good to be true. The only downside is that trees grow very slowly so any tree that’s standing is an asset. Personally, I like the woods and want to protect forests – especially if they are in a more natural state. Green policy that destroys forests and cuts down trees is hypocrisy in the extreme.
In the end, it means wood pellets are backfiring. They lead to forest degradation, and even more rapid CO2 emissions and pollution from their burning. The practice just couldn’t possibly be dumber.
