Did you know that the National Football League (NFL) is preparing to plant thousands of trees in Arizona's wildfire-damaged forests to offset the 350 tons of greenhouse gas emissions expected to be produced by the upcoming Superbowl? In addition, they will turn to wind, solar and geothermal energy sources for the event's location, the University of Phoenix Stadium and the adjacent NFL theme park. This is the fourth year they've taken action to compensate for their carbon emissions.

Whether you approve of carbon offsets or not, the fact that the NFL is taking notice, and taking responsibility, is a step in the right direction.
