Save Our Slopes, say top skiers in climate change SOS, meanwhile Ski Resorts have had biggest November snowfalls in a decade!


By the blogowner, honestclimate, December 6, 2008

This is an except from an article I read this morning

POZNAN, Poland (AFP) — Some of the world’s top skiers and snowboarders Friday urged governments locked in UN climate talks to curb greenhouse gas emissions, saying that global warming was threatening their sport.

I wouldn’t be too concerned though after reading this last week:

Ski resorts across Europe will open this weekend ahead of schedule after the biggest November snowfalls for at least a decade.

The exceptional conditions, including 60cm (23in) of snow on Alpine slopes and even more in the Pyrenees, has given a much needed boost to the ski industry after claims that global warming could devastate its multibillion-pound business.

I find this part of the article explaining the record snowfalls amusing though

“We know that global warming is happening,” Mr Rochette said. “Perhaps there will be an unforeseen impact which means we carry on getting as much snow as we do now.”

Ok, so now global warming causes record snowfalls, get it? There is nothing global warming can’t do!

I can vouch for the snow in the Pyrenees, we were on the slopes at least a month ago and all runs and lifts were open with good snow and lots of people at Ax Les Thermes
