How can we take this seriously when the author is this article states that it was a “joking proposal”… And that’s what it is, it’s condemning soccer players and fans that have ALL had on impact of climate change.

Neither of the world’s biggest greenhouse gas polluters–the U.S. and China–are soccer nations. Meyer’s proposal would provide zero motivation for either nation to reach their emission targets.

No doubt, this World Cup punishment would disproportionately hurt countries in Europe and Latin America, where the Beautiful Game is an obsession.

(Clearly I’m taking this idea WAY too seriously…)
