"...nudge people on the right path". You don't get to decide for everybody what is the right path.
Absurd video. "Dispatch a plane" for one package? Plane "probably" uses 8x more fuel than a truck, but how many more packages can it carry? This is a topic that deserves discussion, and I'm sure faster shipping has an impact on the environment. But that doesn't mean you can just makes statements and not support it with any evidence.And the videos main critic of rush shipping, of which Amazon is the main purveyor, is a guy from UPS. UPS has benefited greatly from Amazon shipping but are increasingly being shoehorned out of Amazon's business as Amazon shifts to doing their own shipping. Hardly an unbiased opinion there. I would not be surprised if some marketing executive at UPS was the catalyst for this whole video.
Use tesla, problem solved
random question, do you guys in the US often get your packages left on your doorstep ? Even in big cities ? In most of Europe it would be stolen very quickly
@Quant Quill Thank you for the answer.That's great. In France where I live, it's not even an option except maybe in the countryside. We have lockers though. Very useful.Regarding bandwidth, space .. it's next to nothing. Amazon has virtually unlimited ressources. Same for Google, that's why you can upload tons of videos for free on YT for example. The weight is again on the little guy, the delivery man. Can't wait for full automation so we can get rid of these tedious jobs.
Depends where you live. In most places in my small city, packages are safely left on the doorstep. There are Amazon lockers in some places where it's not safe. Amazon recently started posting pictures of each delivery to your home, crazy! Wonder how much extra time for the driver, bandwidth, space on servers, etc that takes.
Fuck the environment
Crap science crap economic crap logic. Really CNN find real news stories this is dumb.
