How Climate Change Threatens The Sports We Love
"Sport is a global business with a unique power to convene, move and inspire. We stand ready to support efforts within sport to work towards the climate secure, resilient economy that world leaders committed to in Paris. This report from the Climate Coalition is a welcome step on that journey. Just like athletes need a strong foundation to compete at their very best, the planet is no different. We need the right conditions to maintain peak performance. For too long we’ve treated the planet as if we’re in a sprint—using all our energy and resources in one short blast. We must understand that far from a sprint, we are, together, in the longest of marathons"
