Buying the green tree

When you go out and buy your fresh green tree and tie it up on your SUV's roof you are making a big carbon faux-pas. That tree has been removed from the chain of carbon sequestering organisims to be used to consume electricity (lights) derived from coal that releases more carbon and then finally to be inserted into a dump to take the place of materials and increasing the dump size. Over all, how can a person that cares about the environment actually have a real tree during this episode of the Inconvienient Truth as we know it. We can celebrate big corporate big business greed during the Christmas shopping season by increasing the demands on our environment to deal with our carbon emission carelessness. This sounds stupid. no green trees here. Less fire risk as well. By the way, what about the Saffo (Senior, not mayor) project to have a New Hanover County dump developed next to the North Western side of the Landfall Community? What permits have been already signed off by the State of North Carolina?
