Euro2020: football's carbon footprint?




by Christophe » 23/06/21, 23:51

Everything is in the title ... the green pipo make restrictions very often without any sense ... but I have never seen any brandish the carbon footprint of Football and sport money in general! Probably a problem of political courage and real convictions?

So the question is simple, what about football's carbon footprint?

In econologist memory I have never found a study on this subject (I did not look too much either ...)

Bread, wine, games ... and you will tame the people of the fields ... Is that their thing?

Am i good? : Cheesy: : Cheesy: : Cheesy:

ps: beautiful Euro2020 evening otherwise, full of goal it was great !! : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen:

Assessment of CO2 emissions relating to the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgian GP)

September 16, 2007

by Pierre Ozer. Department of Science and Environmental Management. University of Liege.

Introduction

This study was conducted with the aim of estimating the CO2 emissions issued during the Belgian 1 Championship event which will take place on September 16 2007 at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.

It remains totally factual and does not wish to argue about the merits of the organization of the Grand Prix.

To our knowledge, never before has a similar study been carried out either for the Belgian Grand Prix or for other Formula 1 Grand Prix. It would seem risky to us to generalize the results obtained for this Grand Prix to the 16 other Grand Prix. Prize for the 2007 season, as the characteristics of each Grand Prix are different, particularly with regard to the logistics implemented for certain events such as those taking place in Australia, Asia or the American continent (massive and distant transport by plane, including automobiles, etc.).

And the carbon footprint of the Paris-Dakar? : Mrgreen:

You haven't read the study on Formula 1 ... That would have answered your question! 8) 8) 8)

CO2 Football >>> CO2 Formula 1 >> CO2 Paris Dakar ...

What about the Tour de France?

I think he is at the level of the Dakar ... slightly above!

But above all CHUTTTT !!! Real ecological problems must not be solved ... greens must exclusively focus on false problems ... : Cheesy: : Cheesy: : Cheesy:

And the carbon footprint of combine, monster truck, truck and lawn mower racing, eh?
This is how we have fun among young farmers with the money from the CAP : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen:

Negligible!

You still haven't read the study yourself! : Cheesy:

ps: except the monster trucks in the USA which fill stadiums ...

It was provocative the blow of the harvesters, I find that the latest idiot but I don't care, they have to decompress ... by inhaling chemicals during the week and black exhausts on the weekends., glyphosate and fine particles, the winning cocktail. : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen:
Monster trucks, phew! Truck races must suck a lot too ...

If you had watched the study you would have understood that Roland Garros certainly pollutes more than most motorsport races ...

: Arrowu: : Arrowu: : Arrowu: : Arrowu:

... because it's not the event itself that pollutes the most ...

I just walked through it : Shock:
It seems to me that in counting the kilometers traveled by F1 cars, they forgot to count the tests and qualifying, right?

Maybe but there are other omissions: it's all the F1 industry shows (from cars to track construction ...) I watched this doc. years ago and I don't believe this is included ...

In short, they have zapped all of the gray CO2 part of this sport ... Not easy to estimate, that's for sure.

The conclusion, if I remember correctly, is that the majority of broadcasts, according to this method, are in fact ... by the spectators quite simply!

So it doesn't matter what we look at as a sport: it is the spectators who emit the most CO2 ... and in Football there is some! Especially if we count the spectators of bistros ... and their beers as a result! : Cheesy: : Cheesy: : Cheesy:

A rather reliable method (I think) would simplify all these calculations: it would suffice to estimate the money generated by the activity in question and to know the CO2 intensity of the participants to obtain the CO2 balance of a sporting event or even of a sport in general ...

See these 2 old but very interesting topics:

fossil-nuclear-energies / petroleum-and-gdp-by-country-energy-intensity-t5022.html # p75186
energies-fossil-nuclear / method-of-calculation-from-energy-gray-generic-t4897.html

In short: the more money, the more CO2!
