MLB's environmental agenda can only lead to empty ballparks

If one wanted America's ballparks to be empty, one would suggest the extremist 'environmental agenda' supported by MLB including carbon offsets and selling defenseless school children the catastrophic man-caused CO2 endangerment hypothesis. We all want clean air and water and to preserve the environment but that's something different from saying humanity is on the brink of extinction due to light bulbs and single family detached homes. It's natural for elite MLB players to want to 'give back' to the community and 'do good' with their priceless aura. Perhaps unbeknownst to them, that's not what's happening when they promote catastrophic man-caused CO2 endangerment to children.

"The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism—it's become an economic suicide pact. And we're here to challenge it."...

In the US adults decide policy. We do not rely on unformed minds of children to convince adults what to do as suggested by an MLB exec (citation below photo). It's imperfect but it's adults only. ""This is very much in line with the best thinking in corporate activity today," said John McHale Jr., MLB executive vice president, administration. "Almost everyone who's a parent hears it from their children when we go home, and it is the way, the model of living we need to embrace for the future.""

"In Colorado, pitcher Jeremy Guthrie is part of the Rockies Games of Green initiative, and he encourages fans to submit entries in his Guthrie Go-Green Classroom Challenge. Elementary, middle and high school classes are invited to present an environmental project they have done (or will do by the May 4 deadline) that will make a positive impact on the environment."

""I think it should be important for everyone to do their part and, in the grand scheme of things, do whatever you can to help in that area," said Houston outfielder Hunter Pence, an ambassador for the "Astros Play Green" campaign. "It's what provides for us. I'm very proud to be able to represent the Play Green campaign and hopefully be a role model to kids to try to do their part. Every little bit counts, and if everyone comes together, it makes a big difference.""

Update: Leading decorated climate scientist now says he was wrong, CO2 does not 'trap heat' or cause higher temperatures. He says CO2 has gone up but global temperatures have not.

  • Will MLB at least stop selling CO2 endangerment disguised as 'caring for the environment' to school children?

4/23/12, "'I made a mistake': Gaia theory scientist James Lovelock admits he was 'alarmist' about the impact of climate change," UK Daily Mail, L. Warren

The entire climate industry pivots on the now disproved notion that CO2 causes rising temperatures. Someone profits when MLB buys "carbon offsets" but it's not the planet.
