3 Responses to “Climate Cult Is Rather Upset That New USPS Trucks Will Be Fossil Fueled”
> My younger daughter worked for the USPS for a year, in Versailles, Kentucky, and she has said, many times, that the mail trucks at that Post Office were garbage. They were in horrible shape, and there were many times where she had to deliver the mail in her personal car, because there wasn’t an operational mail truck for her. After thirty years running concrete plants, I know the reason: when vehicles are passed around from driver to driver, you have people who don’t understand the individual quirks of the vehicle, people who don’t write up needed repairs, and maintenance sucks. The Postal Service being a government corporation, they mechanics there are probably not the greatest, either. Plug in electrics actually should be simpler mechanically, but who knows if they actually will be? One over-tired postman who forgets to plug in his vehicle to recharge overnight, and that vehicle is out of service the next day. Since there’s no engine idling in a plug-in electric at stops, EVs just might be the ideal vehicle for the Post Office . . . if they are properly maintained. Our esteemed host suggested that hybrids might be a better choice, but I disagree. The gasoline engine in a hybrid stops when the vehicle stops, and that could mean literally hundreds of gasoline engine starts per shift. A hybrid Postal Service truck on a rural route could easily have as many engine starts in two days as a gasoline powered one gets in a year. I remember driving a diesel-powered BMW in Italy, and the engine shut off every time I braked to a full stop. I remember stop-and-go traffic on the S2 — Italy’s version […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
