That one stadium will seat 40,000 and features a retractable roof to blot out the sun. Even after moving the World Cup to November to accommodate Qatar’s scorching climate, temperatures are expected to range between 75 and 85 degrees, and the stadiums will have an outdoor air-conditioned system to cool temperatures on the pitch. Qatar has claimed that the event will be “carbon-neutral,” and has invested in solar technology and planted 1 million trees. But the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere from the construction of the stadiums alone makes this promise a fantasy.

There’s really not a better candidate for CUM’s honor than the 2022 World Cup, a climax for the worst of humanity.
We honor you with this award.
