I'm fortunate in my garden that a lot of the weeds in my beds aren't even particularly noxious weeds.

They leave the soil better than when they found it. Some people plant them on purpose as a cover crop.
Here in Michigan we have lost a whole shit ton of some of the most effective carbon sink habitats we have at our disposal, wetlands, and it's all thanks to lawns, logging, and unrestricted urban spawl. We're literally changing the climate manually by making asphalt and lawngrass deserts. Every chunk of land dedicated to a golf course, a supermarket parking lot, or a big stretch of suburban lawn, it all adds up to just more habitat destruction. And it's not like we can't live alongside local flora and fauna, it's just a matter of politics.
