How Pro Sports Can Be a Player in Climate

From baseball to football, few things are as all-American as sports. Americans spend $56 billion attending sporting events each yea - "but at what cost to the climate? Between the hotdog-with-everything, energy needed to power 100,000-person stadiums, and transportation to get crowds and players there in the first place, these events can rack up a hefty carbon footprint.

But in the world of pro sports, culture can have a bigger impact than carbon. Venues are setting the standard for environmental and energy-efficient design, and players and coaches have dedicated themselves to bettering their communities outside the game. 

Could the core values of athletics - integrity, teamwork and commitment - be the same values we need to tackle the climate challenge? Join us for a conversation with Dusty Baker, special adviser to the San Francisco Giants, and Jim Thompson, founder of the Positive Coaching Alliance, on how sports are changing the climate game.
