The National Hockey League (NHL) has announced a partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to promote climate hysteria.

The NHL “says it's confronting climate change to help ensure ice hockey’s long-term survival. 'We need winter weather,' NHL commissioner, Gary Bettman, said in a statement Monday. 'We have a vested interest in this cause.'”

Thanks Sierra. Calling all hockey fans. Support this effort by NOT attending any more games to show that you want to help save the planet. Just watch from the comfort of your own home. How long before all the major sports associations finally understand they need to get on board? Idiots! I suppose the nhl is thinkin' they gotta keep the ice from melting if they want to keep playin'.

Hockey should only be played on Natural Ice. No more indoor rinks.

'We need winter weather,'

Isn't hockey played indoors?

“We need winter weather.”
If last winter wasn’t cold enough for them,the forcast for the coming winter is even colder.
Follow the money if possible,I bet Al Gore and friends are funding this.

What’s the carbon footprint on a hockey rink?

Melt the ice...give’em all roller blades.

Reduce the schedule to 68 games and end the season around Memorial Day.

I totally agree...as a huge hockey fan I think there is no doubt that the season is way too long. I believe the long grind reduces the player’s health by exposing them to more injuries, etc. This is a great opportunity to tell that d-bag bettman that not only is he just greedy for stretching out the playoffs for more revenue...he is also killing the planet.

Gary is a moron.

actually the NHL has played a few games out doors-

But on a serious note...

The millennial’s can be told-— “the NHL is helping to save the Earth!!!- they are replenishing the ice missing from the polar ice cap!!- and they would be dense enough to believe it.— now back to watching the View.

Gary Bettman sounds like he’s never been to Edmonton in January.

Yes they play indoors.

And the NHL has followed other sports in stretching out the season far beyond winter. The Stanley Cup finals are played in June. Game 7 if it goes the full 7 games in played in mid-June.

Yes, the weather outside has nothing to do with how the NHL operates. This is horse blank coming out of his mouth.

If anything, NHL has a bigger carbon footprint than it would if they ended the season earlier. They have to keep that ice frozen and arenas air conditioned during warm weather outside as they play their game on the ice.

Ban refrigerant for hockey rinks. That should fix the problem. They didn’t want to be called racist for team names and the lack of black players. Wimping of Hockey.

Say, boys, what was the weather like at the outdoor Winter Classic this last January?

I agree. This is one more business I will never do business with, course I never did anyway. Won’t be long till I run out of businesses to boycott and be reduced to fried dog food and playing solitary for entertainment.

Funny.

I love hockey, but it just isn't the same on TV.

I did get to watch live what I consider the greatest game ever played

Sabres v Soviet Wings 1976

Jesus Saves! Perrault scores on the rebound!

Pro sports teams hooking themselves up to the socialcommie orgs that seek to strangle this nation and its populace into submission to their agenda.. which has nothing to do with fitness or competition.. or a level playing field.

Note: 'here', in this context, is the Tampa Bay area.
