    Dems Hold 'Closed-Door Discussion' with NFL, NBA, NHL to Promote Climate Change Agenda
    http://cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/sean-l...-change-agenda

    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."

    These sports leagues responded, prioritizing "sustainability." The NFL, NHL, MLB, and USOC each devote a section of their websites to sustainability efforts. These policies include installing solar panels on stadiums, making environmentally conscious renovations to sports centers, and pursuing renewable energy credits to offset greenhouse gas.

    The majority of these leagues have also partnered with George Soros-funded lobbyists at the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) to promote a left-wing environmental agenda. The MLB, NHL, and NBA each worked with NRDC officials to advocate the use of solar power. The NRDC has received $1,775,221 from liberal mega-donor Soros since 2004.

    This is not the first time that liberals have relied on sports leagues to promote a left-wing agenda. In September 2013, the White House partnered with the World Champion Baltimore Ravens football team to promote Obamacare. The Pittsburgh Steelers also set up a similar partnership. These partnerships arose after President Obama's unsuccessful attempt to recruit the NBA and the NFL to hype the health care law.

    The NHL plays on ice. Global Warming and ice make for some strange bedfellows don't you think?
    The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

    Now, you know it's "climate change."

    Instead of worrying about the imaginary climate change they need to work on the screwed up Obamacare that is about to devastate our economy.
