Democrats Push Sports To Do “Climate Change” Stuff

So, climahypocrites in Congress, who take lots of fossil fueled flights and use a coal fueled power plant to provide steam and cool water to their building, want the NHL, NBA, MLB, and NFL to be involved in their little scheme of “climate change”

(CNS News) Climate change alarmists have turned to recruiting sports leagues to promote eco-hysteria. Democrats in Congress are calling on the major sports leagues to promote climate change regulation and to answer what they are doing to limit greenhouse gases.

Democratic legislators from the Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change announced on Nov. 20 that they will host major sports league officials in “a closed-door discussion,” Nov. 21. Representatives from Major League Baseball, the NFL, NBA/WNBA, NHL and Olympics are expected to attend.

That will be followed by press availability. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) are expected to “discuss the effects of climate change on sporting activities and the work these organizations are doing to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,” according to the task force website.

Remember that post about liberals taking over sports broadcasting? Now they’re trying to take over sports themselves. Any who get involved are simply hypocrites, considering the amount of power and fossil fuels used to be able to hold games. Why can’t we just leave the politics out of sports? This next quote is a doozy

The congressmen told the sports leagues that they had “a moral obligation to act.”

If that’s the case, why have these congress critters not significantly changed their own lives to become “carbon neutral”?
