The carbon footprint of soccer

The carbon footprint of soccer
I'm watching Liverpool (England) VS Flamengo (Brazil) in the FIFA club world club final, held in Qatar. It's just gone to extra time. Attendance in the stadium is reported to be 45,000. Don't get me wrong, it's been a great game and I'm loving it, yet HOW MANY FLIGHTS?! to attend the game? I'm a bit like the XR Grinch that tried to steal Xmas...perhaps. #flygskam

Add to that my farts in the general direction of professional sports, and you have a hell of a footprint.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Psalm 14, KJV revised edition

We have players of games being payed more in one year than me, on 5000 (rough estimate) years. Merry Xmas.

I wonder how many carbon offsets those sportsmen could afford to buy with their disposable income if they only knew of the climate terrible perril...the mind truly boggles!
