Which is Which – when it comes to the environment?

Along a stretch of US Highway 183 North of Austin Texas there is a power line made up of both concrete and wooden poles.  Both types have the same life expectancy (until obsolescence), but which one has the better impact on greenhouse gasses.  

One REMOVES 33,113 lbs. of greenhouse gases per mile
          and the other one
                  CONTRIBUTES 42,912 lbs. of greenhouse gases per mile. 
Want to guess which is which— GO GREEN!
