Yao Ming – First Ever U.N. Environmental Champion

Currently the tallest player in U.S. pro basketball is Yao Ming standing at a mind-blowing 7’6″. Do you think there has ever been an article written about him that does not reference his height? Well I found one, and instead it discusses his passion for protecting the world and his appointment as the United Nations’ first Environmental Champion.

The Chinese superstar’s role is to raise awareness of climate change and energy efficiency. Yao explained how he’ll take on this enormously important task, “So I will work with young people across the world and try to inspire them to plant trees, use energy efficient light bulbs, harvest rain water and to become environmental champions in their own communities.”

He’s got billions of eyes on him as he competes for the Chinese basketball team, and he recently had the coveted honor to act as their flag carrier in the Olympic opening ceremonies. He uses this opportunity in the spotlight to ask for help in his task, “As the world celebrates the Beijing Olympic Games, I would also like to call upon the organizers of all major sports events in the world to make sure they use public transport facilities, build proper waste management systems and use greener forms for energy.”

“Please join me in this global team effort.”

I hope his home country, tainted by the polluted haze at their ‘Green Olympics’ will be the first to respond to his plea for assistance in tackling climate change and energy efficiency. Leave the coal in the ground, China!
