So instead of using something that has very few other practical uses, they will use tree, which though a renewable resource, provide food, homes for birds, etc.
For years we’ve been berated by the environmentalists to save a tree, recycle, and now they’re going to burn them all with abandon. We can’t cut down trees for paper. We can’t cut down trees because some birds live there. But we can cut down trees to burn.
If I’m not mistaken, trees are still a carbon product, just as coal and oil are. And the coal and oil we’ll just leave sitting there while we wait for the trees to grow so we can burn them.
Now I understand.
“Forget” this guy. Don’t mess with Texas! Hands off our state!
At one time until coal was put into use, there was a joke that they cut down so many trees in England that Judas would not be able to find a tree to hang himself.
