Can climate neutrality and the NFL go hand in hand? LOHAS directory reports that it is indeed possible! Last week’s game in St. Louis between the Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles generated an estimated 58 tons of carbon emissions – mostly to heat the domed stadium. An organization called StopGlobalWarming.org has arranged the purchase of an equivalent amount of energy from wind and methane to offset the game’s climate footprint. However, that amounts to only a tiny fraction of the more than 10,000 tons of CO2 generated by fans driving and flying to the game. The organization hopes that by publicizing their efforts, fans will take notice.
