FIFA: Travel for 2014 World Cup Will Produce Equivalent of 2.72 Million Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide

Will try to do some "carbon offsetting"


The World Cup may be great for planet soccer, but it isn't so good for planet Earth.

Soccer's world governing body, FIFA, says the 2014 tournament, which will require huge amounts of air travel to venues across Brazil, will produce the equivalent of 2.72 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.
