Contender 10: TeleCommute: Average Daily Commute = 45 Pounds of CO2 per Day

A typical car gives off 20 pounds of CO2 for every gallon of gas consumed.


Contender 10: TeleCommute:
Average Daily Commute = 45 Pounds of CO2 per Day


Environmental Protection Agency figures indicate that
if just 10 percent of the nation's workforce TeleCommuted
just one day a week, Americans would conserve more than
1.2 million gallons of fuel per week.

Similarly, if only one in 100 American car owners
left his or her wheels in the garage one day a week,
it would save an estimated 42 million gallons of gas per year.

And in addition to conserving energy,
we could breathe a little easier:

A 90-minute round-trip commute pumps
9 pounds of carbon monoxide and
45 pounds of carbon dioxide into the air every day.


Reduced global warming:

Automobiles and light trucks emit 20 percent
of the U.S.'s fossil fuel-based carbon dioxide (CO2)
--a key contributor to the greenhouse effect.

A typical car gives off 20 pounds of CO2
for every Gallon of gas consumed.


Environmental Protection Agency figures
------


telecommuting just two days a week can reduce a person's gas expense by 40%

Around the country gas prices range about the same:
$2.96 in New York, $2.99 in Massachusetts,
$2.80 in Texas, and a whopping $3.24 in Montgomery, Alabama.

Who can afford the commute to work?
Who can afford to drive?

Consumers are wracking their brains trying to figure out
ways to cut down their gas expenses.
...

What is the best solution? Telecommuting.

According to Chuck Wilsker, President and CEO of
The Telework Coalition, telecommuting just two days a week
can reduce a person's gas expense by 40%.

Wilsker, who has studied workplace trends and telecommuting
for over ten years, recently noted,

"The more organizations that have telecommuters,
the more likely we will see gas prices stabilize
or drop at the pumps."

Wilsker isn't the only person who understands
the logic of telecommuting.

To help relieve some of the pain from gas prices,
even President Bush
has been encouraging federal workers to TeleCommute
since the last wave of Katrina.
It only makes sense: if you don't commute,
you buy less gas, and you save more money.

Nice idea, but isn't the prize offered for taking CO2 out of the air, not just reducing the amount we put into the air?

My problem is this:
Step 1- telecommute
Step 2- Lose your job to someone in India or another developing nation who can telecommute for a much lower salary.
Part-time telecommuting is a nice go-between, most jobs will always require personal interaction, but if possible, this option would also help reduce traffic congestion if there were any way government could stagger the days in which people telecommuted. Reducing traffic congestion also reduces ghg's emitted by shortening travel time and engine idling.
