I’m warming to warming

Posted on Updated on

The Winter Olympics is perhaps the only major sporting event where an old Nazi can sit and watch and feel re-assured. Caucasian after rich Caucasian skies, jumps. luges, bobs and sleds for about two weeks. A dreadful affair, plus it gives the Canadians something to be good at.

So here is some good news. Climate Change is now threatening the Winter Olympics. Half of previous venues will in future be climatically unsuitable for hosting the Games. A timely reminder to those complaining about floods in Britain that there may some positive impacts of climate change.

    Yep, this is one thing I am glad to leave to the dustbin of history. Maybe we shouldn’t be too comfortable though. I think some Arab countries have indoor skiing facilities.

      How many square kilometres of solar panels would it take to power an indoor ski jump? But yes, I look forward to Dubai 2114.

    Actually, I have long suspected that the xgames became popular because they gave something for white kids to excel in.
