Cowboys Stadium uses more energy than Liberia

AMERICA - Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

That's a country. A whole country.

Aaron Gordon has made us aware of this Field of Schemes article about how much energy Cowboys Stadium uses when the lights are on.

So Cowboys Stadium (now renamed after a phone company, but apparently the WSJ's style guide has been slow to keep up) indeed draws more power than a nation of 3.7 million people founded by resettled American slaves, but only on the days when they turn everything on for football. Or, to put it another way, in order to power Liberia for less than it costs to run the Cowboys stadium, you'd need to turn the nation off for much of the year.

America's team!
