Department of Interior going hybrid
The Department of the Interior plans to replace one-third of its gas and alternative-fuel vehicles with hybrids, becoming the first agency to take part in a new federal program that covers additional costs for greening up government auto fleets as opposed to buying new gas guzzlers.
Interior Secretary Sally Jewell is scheduled to announce the plan during a Wednesday news conference at a D.C. park. ”We are excited to be the first to partner with [the General Services Administration] on this important initiative to make our vehicles more fuel-efficient,” she said in a statement. “This is simply a good business decision that will benefit not only our bottom line but reduce our carbon emissions as well.”
This is what happens when you put an unqualified person in charge of something they have no clue about!
