More lumber, more trees, more CO2 processed. But there's always some salamander a hippie is trying to save or some woman with hairy pits living up in one on some selfish crusade.
Same goes for nuclear. Currently the US is only 20% nuclear at best. More nuclear = less CO2. But every time a proposed nuclear plant goes through the notions some hippie with molested nightmares of Chernobyl gets in the way and we're all back to burning tons and tons and tons of coal.
