I think it is. All those resources spent on people sentenced to life in jail... Starting with building new jails, food, electricity, water, prison guards and many more. This also makes me wonder how environmentally unfriendly is criminal activity in general. Imagine all those police officers around the world chasing thieves, courts prosecuting them etc, when they could be doing something far less energy intensive.
