Interesting article, but I don't think I could make the bold statement, that was in bold, The USPS example proves that the US could become a renewable energy nation, if only we had a mandate to do so.

I don't think the US would be able to produce enough ethanol to power the country and still have enough grain to feed the nation.

The idea of USPS to increase the volume of junk mail is hassle for everyone. This is because USPS is not exactly in the very best of financial health. The bureau has been bleeding money for many years and it is looking to cut costs or boost revenue anywhere it can and a huge moneymaker for the bureau is one that many people are not tickled pink with. Namely, expect more spam.
