The GOP is taking out the trash, and Pelosi’s House composting program is deemed garbage:
The House composting plan was part of Pelosi’s initiative to make the Capitol more environmentally friendly, and that included installing low-flow toilets in House office buildings, bringing organic foods into the House cafeterias and incorporating recyclable utensils and composting programs throughout the Capitol complex.
Have you EVER seen an instance of “organic foods” being more economical than our regular old peasant-grown fruits and veggies, from plain old American soil? (or Mexican soil)? I haven’t.
But the estimated $475,000 program has only produced nominal reductions in carbon emissions – a reduction equivalent to removing one car from the road each year, according to a congressional inspector general report.
Additional energy was being used for the pulping process that breaks down the biodegradable materials, and that required additional electricity
Pelosi’s spokesman said she is “disappointed” to see her “important” work “suspended.”
