From The Hill and 1440
Not that ownership is really going to do anything. The Sox “will use a portion of ticket proceeds to purchase carbon offsets.” That means “buying” clean air from someone else, or putting money into planting trees or catching methane from landfills.
Terrapass, an offset purchasing company, claims that “Every 1,000 pounds of carbon offsets purchased destroys greenhouse gases equivalent to 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.”
Included in the Red Sox carbon assessment is “how people get to and from games.” Sounds like, “Look for future recommendations/rules against driving private automobiles to the games or taking certain forms of public transportation.”
Cynical Bob wonders at the “Oh, aren’t we doing well as a responsible corporation, proving we care about the planet,” and etc. Buying carbon offsets is in the same “feel good” budget paragraph as wokeism.
