    Don't forget all that CO2 spewing Concrete and asphalt material and land clearing of trees and plants too.

    So your alternative is to be as pollutive as you can and waste as much energy and our natural resources as you feel like wasting?

    The logging industry, just like the fossil fuel industry, is feeding us a bunch of bullshit for profit and gain. Well guess what, energy efficient technology creates way more jobs than the fossil fuel pricks.

    ... energy efficiency creates more jobs than fossil fuels — and at a faster rate and a lower cost.

    From 2015 to 2016, there was 53 percent employment growth in advanced and recycled building materials, and 59 percent employment growth in Energy Star appliances. Compare that to just 9 percent growth in fossil fuel-based electricity generation.

    ...every $1 million invested in energy efficiency creates 12 jobs, compared to just 4 or 5 for fossil fuel jobs.

    Energy efficiency jobs in the United States totaled 2.18 million in 2016, more than double the total of fossil fuel production and fossil-fuel based electricity generation combined.

    Look dude. The fact is there is too much wood on the land. Imagine your lawn and you only get to cut 10% of your lawns growth every year. What's your yard going to look like in 20 years? Use your head. It doesn't matter if people profit from clearing the dead trees. It's GOOD FOR THE FOREST you nitwit!

    I probably have a smaller carbon footprint than you do, and my business was involved in environmental cleanups for over 30 years. It was MY JOB to clean up the messes of others. And I was damned good at it too!

    Another progressive suckered by % statistics. Always look impressive....until the are compared to something. Especially when one realizes that solar power still accounts for less than 2% of electricity generation in America!! Then its fucking hysterical :fu::fu::funnyface:. Except for the progressive, of course.

    Nobody cares how many employees there are in renewable energy. The only thing that matters is how much actual energy renewable energy is generating compared to fossil fuels. And the answer is......almost nothing by comparison.
