Where can I find out the EPA’s policy on employee telecommuting?
I’d be willing to telecommute, if I could.
I wouldn’t be doing it to save energy, but because I could then work in a matter I like and not have any boss or co-worker looking over my shoulder.
I work from home 2-3 days per week and I probably use a lot more energy at home than I would at work.
This assumes you drive to work.
In my case, the PATH train runs from New York to New Jersey whether I’m on it or not. I save energy by not walking to the station, but then burn it up by going to the gym during the lunch hour.
Everything must be wonderful when all you have to worry about is your carbon footprint. Why am I not feeling reassured? Rome burns; Nero fiddles on.
STEP ONE: Mandate that every government worker whose job can be done at home must telecommute.
STEP TWO: Outsource those jobs to India at 25% of the cost.
“Working” at the EPA: Sitting on your @$$, gazing at your navel, blue-skying ideas about how to “save the planet.”
In other words, a complete waste of oxygen.
1,600 pounds? If you're driving an A1 Abrams tank back and forth and decide to leave it in the drive way for 104 days of the year.
Liberal Logic actually heard: "Imagine if everyone were to own a Volt. Americans could drive twice as much as they do now and it would be good for the environment and the economy."
If we went back to horse and buggy and did away with electricity, we wouldn't even be able measure the difference in atmospheric CO2 concentration.
Has anyone suggested this to the Obamas?
No matter how you spin it, Earth Day is still just a disguised version of Comrade Lenin’s Birthday celebration.
It’s a COMMIE holiday.
A few weeks ago, Obama said that he wanted to see us spending less on gas instead of saying that he wanted the price of gas to be lower. My immediate thought was they would somehow start dictating what a reasonable commuting distance was and impose strict fines if you live too far from work. I wouldn’t put it past these people.
EPA tip 2035: Stay home from work and eat your children, saving tranportation costs, CO2 emmisions and eliminating future polluters.
The idea of not having to fight the traffic 3 days a week sounds good to me.(/S)
If I work from home 5 days a week that would be better and I cut my carbon tire tracks even more.
I'm on salary and they don't care what hours I work for the most part as long as I get the job done. I have gone in many days at 11:00 or 1:00 but stay later of course.
The next time my house is being robbed, I’ll call the police and ask them to have one of their officers telecommunicate with me to hold off the robber.
I realize these idiots are trying to destroy manufacturing in this country (or at least non-Union mfg), but do they think they have succeded?
Let me know when the Feds start to do tele-commuting, or better yet all of these overseas conferences/meetings start to be done via video conferencing.
Ask my boss If I can work from home to save energy?...
You bet he would say....In fact you can save a lot of energy because you’re fired!
