Electric Chainsaws - The Green Way to Clearcut

I finally gave in and bought a chainsaw, as it was far too difficult to cut some major branches around 12 feet up by hand (previously, I'd always cut down trees by hand).  However, I did choose an electric chainsaw.  I have to wonder why they exist - much less convenient than a petrol chainsaw, they still need oil for the chain, and the total initial cost (including, say, a 100ft 12/3 extension cord, as they draw quite a bit of power) comes out somewhat higher than the traditional approach.  Is it just for those who want to feel that there is something not quite so eco-terrorist about their tree removal or pruning?
