Decorate this, climate change zealots!

MADISON — The left’s war on Christmas has been adjusted to fit its deranged climate change agenda.

O Tannenbaum.

A ludicrous and factually flawed tweet late last month by @Madison_Native (of course) wants fellow lunatics to agree that natural Christmas trees are a cause of the climate change problem.

“I enjoy having a real xmas tree — but I haven’t bought one for decades. At this point, given the extent & rate of climate change, it makes NO SENSE to me to remove a CO2-absorbing tree from nature for a short-term ‘want’,” @Madison_Native wrote, asking Twitter followers to retweet “if you agree we should throw-away xmas trees.”

State Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee), also a candidate for lieutenant governor, agreed. In fact she hearted the tweet.

Perhaps these Christmas tree huggers would prefer a plastic tree instead. No good, says the Nature Conservancy, a climate change alarmist environmental group.

Which Christmas tree is better for the environment?

“Short answer — real!” the conservancy reports. “Real trees help fight climate change, and even though your Christmas tree is cut down, you’re actually supporting forests.”

Real trees don’t require the intensive carbon emissions it takes to produce and ship the approximately 10 million artificial trees purchased in the U.S. each year. About 90 percent of those are shipped from China — You know that communist nation that spews CO2 like unhinged lefties spew vitriol on “climate change deniers.” Oh, and China also has a horrible record on human rights.

Here’s something else:

“When these natural trees are harvested for sale, there are more than ten times as many left standing! Out of the 350-500 million growing on tree farms across the U.S., only 30 million trees are harvested for Christmas each year,” according to the Nature Conservancy. “Buying real trees will help keep tree farms in business – and in turn keep their lands covered in the healthy forest habitat that wildlife depends on to survive.”

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree, how lovely are thy branches.
