Perhaps you have seen the new FedEx ad touting our "sustainability" on televison. Fairyland creatures live in an "enchanted forest" (thanks, vantexan) that is in perfect harmony with ultra-green FedEx. This is fertilizer of the highest order, but since being green sells, Fred is going to weave a whopper of a tale about just how concerned FedEx is about the environment. As I walked down the line of CTV's at the ramp this morning, it was raining, and there was a rainbow trail of oil leading straight into a storm drain that leads into our local creek. I told one of the RTD's that he had an oil leak, and he just laughed. Apparently, most of the older trucks lose a couple quarts per week because they leak like a sieve and FedEx won't pay too fix them. The tractors are "too old" and not worth the repair investment. That's pretty "green". FedEx moves vehicles out of states with strict Clean Air laws to other states that have less stringent laws. The vehicle just pollutes somewhere else for another 15 years. See any of those "clean machines" outside of a few particular states? No, you don't. If Fred spent an extra dime on the environment it's because there was a gun to his head. At my station, we still have several 80's vintage W600's and 700's. They also leak (badly), and especially like to weep transmission fluid, to the point where drivers are warned to watch the level daily. Drip pans catch most of it at the station, but don't they leak on the road too? Extremely green. Oh, and how about that executive jet fleet? If Senator Blowhole of TN wants a FedEx jet to fly him to his girlfriend's house in Los Angeles, FedEx will do it, because Blowhole will vote Fred's way on anti-union and other pro-FedEx legislation. Pure green....for Blowhole. And when you send (or receive) that vital box of candy, Italian shoes, or video games, never mind that a fuel-guzzling MD10 burned through a few hundred gallons of Jet-A just waiting to take off. Who is the #2 user of jet fuel in the world? FedEx. Very, very green. And who would be the #2 contributor to flooding the atmosphere with greenhouse gases? Why, that would be FedEx too. Fred is buying new cleaner jets, at the expense of his poorly-paid hourly employees, and he'll sell the old ones to Botswana Express so they can fly drugs all over the world and pollute there too. Green as the Lucky Charms guy. Electric trucks and hybrids. Any at your station? I've seen one, which was on a tour...that's it. Hey Fred!! Exactly what percentage of our fleet is electric, hybrid, or alternatively-fueled? What? I can't hear your answer. Uh oh...that few, huh? Oh, and you didn't really invent that particular electric van, did you? You pretended that we financed the R&D, when nothing of the sort happened, and then heavily publicized this tepid turd on the famous Route 66 Tour, during which the TT was trailered much of the way. Oops, another lie. Lies, untruths, and misrepresentations, all from the master of all that is false and misleading....FedEx. Please show all of those little forest creatures and fairies gasping for breath and keeling over as a fleet of FedEx planes and vehicles passes through the "enchanted forest". That would be truth in advertising.
