    our fed  and state funded universities from broadcasting sports on partisan RW radio stations dedicated to global warming denial.

    RW radio is the main tool for national global warming denial efforts and many of the loudest of those stations depend heavily on the endorsement they get from their associations with uni and college sports broadcasting.

    from link in sig:

    76 universities that help Rush Limbaugh spread global warming denial.
    Rush Limbaugh was recently named the Climate Change Misinformer of the Year by Media Matters.

    Of 120 top ranked football programs, 71, or approximately 59% broadcast on Limbaugh stations (see below). Some broadcast on more than one Limbaugh station and accounted for 170 of Limbaugh's approximately 600 stations, or 28%. 15 of last year's final 16 NCAA tournament basketball teams (except BYU) broadcast on Limbaugh stations.

    The urgency of climate change makes it imperative that our institutions of higher learning take their mission statements more seriously and act now to dissociate themselves from those radio stations.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
