    Instead of producing planet killing carbon in the Adirondacks, demo the buildings and make the land into native forest.

    Unless a town is as beautiful as a charming, Austrian mountain village with tiny, winding foot paths, a tiny old church with shingles from the local forest, and a little hay barn on stilts, then its not worth restoring.
