Actually, there has been quite a bit of that, and the U.S. Department of 
Commerce (of which NOAA is a part) and other USG agencies support 
telecommuting and also help the cause by some subsidizing of payments to 
local commuter conveyances (such as trains and buses) for their 
employees.  I don't know what the figure is, but it helps.  I use it 
when I can, and I also purchased some solar electric panels for my 
house--doesn't help a whole lot, and it won't amortize out for a long 
time, but it's something!
