The left’s climate obsession will put us all in our basements…

According to a recent report from the Department of Energy entitled The U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization, a disastrous multi-department plan which President Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency and Energy, Transportation, and Housing departments joined forces to release, telework can help reduce greenhouse emissions.

Put simply: never leave home, never use gas.

The report indicates that there were a lot of positive learnings to take away from the COVID pandemic —and one of them is Americans don’t really need to go anywhere.

“Telework and other components of a digital economy … can improve convenience by reducing travel demand, especially for work commuting,” the plan states. “The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted major opportunities for telework, with some studies showing the possibility of 10 percent long-term reduction in annual vehicle miles traveled.” The plan goes on to identify “remote access to services like health care and education” as one of the “key determinants of future travel demand.”

The Democratic Party may be taking the wrong learnings away from the pandemic.

“Once again, the Biden administration is blindly pursuing a ‘green’ agenda despite the unintended consequences it poses to the economy and, more specifically, small businesses,” Job Creators Network president Alfredo Ortiz told the Washington Free Beacon. “Small businesses struggled to survive the pandemic and we don’t need to return to a similar environment in which in-person consumer demand is severely compromised.”

But not all Democrats are in the climate cult —Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser wants folks back to in-person work.

According to Axios, “at her swearing-in [ceremony], Bowser pressed for ‘decisive action by the White House to either get most federal workers back to the office most of the time’ — or to rethink how the federal bureaucracy uses its ‘vast’ real estate.”

“U.S. energy use declined to its lowest level in decades during the pandemic, a trend that also led to a 10 percent reduction in emissions,” Free Beacon reports.

Climate cultists see that stat and start to drool.
