NFL and other sports leagues tackle climate challenges

Sports leagues are stepping up to the plate as advocates for sustainability efforts, including reducing carbon emissions and solid waste at their facilities.  As noted by the National Journal (more at link):

Representatives from five of America’s major sports leagues hit the Hill on Thursday to discuss the work they’re doing to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions. The National Football League is measuring the greenhouse-gas effects of the Super Bowl this year, and last year it conducted solid-waste management and recycling at all major Super Bowl facilities. Major League Baseball stadiums have adopted solar panels. And the National Basketball Association has come out in support of Environmental Protection Agency standards to reduce carbon pollution from electric power plants.
