Climate Change, The Environment and Football.

Recommended Posts

Fellow forumite Bolo Locks, who, thanks to the power of TLW landed a job at Oxford United, has asked me to post this as he isn't able to post links yet.

 

here goes:

 

Hope you can help,

 

I am working with Oxford Uni to look at how the competitive nature and rivalries we have could be used to ignite others to fight against climate change.

 

We all know how animated we get during a game, buzzed if we win and angry when we lose and I am looking at how we can take those emotions and apply them to climate change.

 

Can we use the "must win" mentality from you guys to get Mrs Miggins to change the way she wastes energy and get Mr Banker to not take so many flights because we have to beat the 2 degree rise?

 

If you could answer my survey (don't worry it's only 5 quick questions) I will get a better insight into your feelings towards climate change at the moment and therefore help baseline how football fans feel about the problem.

 

SurveyMonkey: Free online survey software & questionnaire tool

 

Hope you can help and please ask other boarders to do it as well.

 

Cheers

 

Bolo locks

 

PS I am also asking Manure fans to do the same, please make sure we have more responses than them it would be great to beat them twice in a week!

If I was an Oxford United fan, I'd be pretty furious that they are putting their resources in to a climate change study, surely they should be fully focused on reaching the League 2 play-offs?

 

Hahaha

They play the mighty Shrewsbury Town on the final day. They had better hope they have it sorted by then because they will get nowt from them.

Serves them right for having Dave 'Nice But Dim' Cameron as a local MP.

 

I bet he wont set a good example.

 

In fact if he doesnt keep jetting off to sell arms to Algeria and to overthrow Gadaffi,I will give up my 5 yearly holiday.

 

Sound fair?

Does this mean substitutes will no longer be allowed to warm up?

 

Chile will not be allowed to compete in the World Cup?

 

Arsenal's main rivals will be Tottenham Veryhotspur?

Climate Change is a symptom of reduced Solar Activity, and we mere mortals cannot influence it one iota. All we can do, is what we have always done when it comes to changes in our environment - adapt to it.

I'm going with this theory. Adapting is so much easier than changing.

Loving your work guys, all of your comments are useful the project is not to prove climate change it is to see how a football fan deals with it. There is a response from the University team:

 

The resulting changes we make to reduce our environmental impact dont have to be all bad: faster accelerating cars, less money spent on bills, cleaner air so less hayfever and asthma attacks etc etc.

 

Climate Change may not be 100% man made but it does represent a problem we need to address, it is how we change and adapt and by how much which will determine how much the planet will change.

Well there you have it, any chances you could do the survey now? RedinSweden's post has the link.

 

Thanks
