Newspapers are a huge environmental hazard. They consume millions of trees, which must be cut down using oil, gas, and diesel fuel. Then the trees have to be trucked and processed into paper, using more energy and polluting the air. Then the paper has to be trucked to the newspapers, who use still more energy printing millions of pages every day. Then the newspapers are delivered, using still more energy and polluting the air. Then the discarded papers have to be picked up by garbage or recycle trucks, using still more energy and polluting the air.
Congress should pass legislation limiting the size of newspapers to 10 pages a day. This would help save the world from global warming.
