Now first off I don't want this to turn into another giant hamburgers that cut down swathes of rainforests to save captive black parrots and monster trucks thread. I have a paper to write for Gym class (what happened to the good ole' days where you actualy did gym in gym class?) I have to choose a sport and debate it's effect on the environment. I chose NASCAR. Thing is yeah it's bad cause IIRC they still run on fuel and burn quite a bit and they have to build the race tracks and all. but in the big scheme of things is the impact really significant? I'm not sure which side I feel like taking for the essay. What do you guys (except for NTB, we all know where he stands) think about this issue?
