Tomorrow [today] Rep. Henry A. Waxman and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, co‐chairs of the Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change, will host representatives from five of America’s major sports leagues, as well as the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), to discuss the effects of climate change on sporting activities and the work these organizations are doing to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The group will meet for a closed‐door discussion, followed by a press availability.
Now, admittedly, even as a climatologist, I do spend a fair amount of time discussing sports.
But I do so around the water cooler or at the local bar, not with Congressional task forces.
Your tax dollars are probably better served that way.
