Lack of snow is endangering Winter Olympics

The next Winter Olympic games are beginning this week in Vancouver and snow is lacking and has to be either shipped or manufactured. Current high temperatures are to the AFP up to 10°C (50°F).

After the air pollution issues being at the center of the Beijing Olympics two years ago, now climate is worrying organizators. All this is mirroring our environmental concerns all too clearly.

Contrary to what deniers claim, climate change is real and starts seriously worrying the International Olympic Committee (IOC). For more on this, please check out the New York Times article.
