Dems Hold Closed-Door Session With NFL, NBA, NHL Officials to Promote Global Warming

In case you haven’t noticed, Democrats opened a new front and are now pushing their leftist agenda in the world of sports.

This week far left legislators held a closed-door meeting with sports league officials to promote global warming.

Global warming activists gathered this week in Calgary but only 50 people showed up due to snow.

CNS News reported:

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.

The Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change, formed in January 2013 to combat climate change, previously asked the five leagues, and the United States Olympic Committee, among 300 groups, for policy suggestions to combat climate change. In a letter to these organizations, Waxman and Whitehouse warned that the “window to prevent catastrophic climate change is rapidly closing.”

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

Last year the junk scientists tried to convince us that global warming means more ice. Then they tried to convince us that global warming will cause less snow but more blizzards. Then they wanted us to believe global warming causes thicker ice.
Now they want sports officials to push their junk science.
