Facing ongoing, massive financial losses, the United States Postal Service (USPS) has said that a cut in Saturday service would help the service do its part to stem the effects of manmade climate change.
In its proposal, the service said that CO2 emissions by its vehicles and facilities could be slashed by up to 503,000 metric tons per year. The majority of that would be as result of the reduction in use of rural and local delivery vehicles with highway vehicle usage accounting for most of the rest.
Calling it “a greener Postal Service,” the USPS said the reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions would be the equivalent of taking between 60,000 and 96,000 cars off the road for a year. In all, the cuts in GHG would cut the CO2 emissions for the Postal Service by 3 to 5 percent.
Of course, the fact that they wouldn’t actually be doing their, you know, jobs would mean little. With the climate alarmists, mostly liberals, it is all about intentions, not results.
Electronic communication has taken a toll on the Postal Service and a switch to five day delivery is seen as a way to try to return it to solvency. By using a ‘green’ argument, the USPS is hoping to win over the support of Congress and the American people while it battles the powerful labor unions that are resisting the loss of 40,000 jobs.
Heck of a good point, which could win over a good chunk of the alarmist population, otherwise known as kool aid drinking sheeple.
Elsewhere, no the kool aid drinkers are claiming the “missing heat” may affect the world later. Sigh.
