The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is about to start making one of the world’s largest and most polluting fleets a whole lot cleaner. That is, unless environmental zealots, including some Members of Congress, derail things. USPS has 140,000 high-polluting vehicles that are at least 20 years old. On February 23, USPS announced a contract for up to 165,000 cleaner vehicles over the next decade. It has sufficient cash to do so and the option of purchasing “all electric” vehicles it chooses. Meddling by Congress will only gum up the works and potentially delay the deployment of safer, cleaner vehicles. Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses these matters in RealClearEnergy here.
