Earth Liberation Front torches McMansions, releases CO2 into the atmosphere

"I'm not letting crews get in the buildings. It's a defensive fire right now," said Eastman. "We heard several explosions inside of there, so we're not sending any crews in for the fear that they are booby trapped...We're in a contain mode."

It seems that the ELF has torched a half-dozen McMansions on Seattle's "Street of Dreams" luxury home showcase. Nobody has been hurt.

On the one hand, it makes a statement about our consumer culture and it's effects on the earth, but on the other hand, a fire that size has got to be releasing tons of carbon dioxide in to the atmosphere. I wonder which ELF cares about more?
