Bud Selig--like many millionaires and hedge fund guys--wants to remind you what an evil, selfish American you are for insisting on watching baseball at night which uses more electricity than day games. Robert Redford explained why rich guys like global warming so much:
"Major League Baseball's relationship with a group of environmental extremists is drawing criticism from experts at the National Center for Public Policy Research who believe that taking good care of the environment, like baseball, should be a uniting factor, instead of a divisive one.
"Conservation is as American as baseball, but MLB has gone into foul territory by partnering with the group that started one of the most memorable unfounded junk-science campaigns in a generation, the alar scare, which in 1989 caused Americans to think apple pie could cause cancer.
- "MLB's partnership with the radical Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) undermines what should be a goal of bringing Americans together for a clean environment," according to Jeff Stier, director of the National Center for Public Policy Research's Risk Analysis Division.
"You don't have to be a Tea Party member," says Jeff Stier, "to be offended by the
Major League Baseball, which partnered with the NRDC to show a public service announcement narrated by Robert Redford during the playoffs, leaves the public with the dubious impression that the NRDC is a group that baseball fans should support.
- To this day, the NRDC promotes unscientific scares that hurt job-creating industries and consumers alike," says Stier."...
it could have done so with an inclusive organization, or on its own," says Stier, who is a veteran monitor of false, misleading and/or harmful health claims by radical activist groups. "The PSA, of course, excludes the strident language and rancid politics otherwise employed by NRDC. But the ad," says Stier, "amounts to a free fundraising campaign for a group that a large percentage of baseball fans, regardless of their political affiliation,
- "If Major League Baseball wants to tout responsible environmental practices,
Stier, a long-time New York Yankees season ticket holder, is particularly disappointed that "an extremist organization is given the opportunity to bask in the goodwill of what should be America's non-partisan pastime."
If privately-owned major league baseball clubs want to install solar panels in stadiums they own, commit to recycling, or encourage their fans to do so, good for them," said National Center President Amy Ridenour, a Pirates fan. "But partnering with an organization that routinely slanders tens of millions of Americans is an insult to those Americans and to all fans who don't share the NRDC's extreme agenda. Unless Major League Baseball plans to recast itself as a political party, and a left-wing one at that,
- would abhor if they understood the group's true radical agenda."
Robert Redford ran a blaring global warming video
- it should withdraw from this partnership.""...via BTF
at Yankee Stadium during the 2009 playoffs
telling fans to lower their standard of living to save the planet:
10/19/09, "'Global Warming' at Yankee Stadium,
" Powerline blog
NRDC and others are dedicated to eliminating the automobile
and therefore discretionary driving such as driving to a baseball stadium.
They're succeeding. Americans have cut out billions of
discretionary driving miles. MLB promotes global warming theory
which says American motorized activities like driving
cause sinking islands in the Indian Ocean
, African Civil Wars
, etc. Everyone wants to a clean and healthy environment. No one needs a multi-trillion dollar scam which includes 'sustainables
' and 'renewables'. MLB encourages its own demise. This isn't about clean air and water which everyone wants. This is about something completely different, the claim by profiteers that CO2 is poisonous, that people should revert to pre-Industrial Revolution behavior, that Americans are criminally liable for climate crime and must pay. If this is just a simple, benevolent idea, why is it making billions for organized crime, why is it the biggest profit center at European investment banks? Because we've been sold out by a generation of politicians and global money men the result of which is the current worldwide depression. (I've linked to all these statements previously on this blog).
An NRDC trader says trillions of dollars
will be needed in the 'global warming transition.' The 'climate' industry takes advantage of peoples' natural instinct to give to others, to want to feel they're a better person. Believing what Al Gore said about Americans being the cause of fires and floods, sinking islands, and suffering of millions, people have allowed trillions of dollars to be siphoned out of world economies which are now in a depression. The money has been transferred to corporate interests
who claim they 'care' about the planet but aren't they allowed to make money too, they bully? All over something that doesn't exist, ie man made global warming. ed.
If evil Americans weren't so selfish insisting on playing baseball in the dark
this wouldn't happen. Of course, MLB teams would go out of business playing only day games-
4/22/08, "People in high and visible
places - from Robert Redford to Bud Selig
- have come to understand that America's games can spur change among corporate partners and
- even among the eco-ignorant masses."...

"IPCC expert admits UN (climate) goal is wealth redistribution," American Thinker, Marc Sheppard, 11/18/10
"Climate policy has little to do with environmental protection. Ottmar Edenhofer, a German economist and IPCC Co-chair of Working Group III on Mitigation of Climate Change, “Climate policy is redistributing the world's wealth” and that
- “it's a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization.”
Edenhofer went on to explain that in Cancun, the redistribution of not only wealth but also natural resources will be negotiated, adding that:
The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference,
- but one of the largest economic conferences
