Winter Olympics and climate change

Recommended Posts

I can't find a similar thread, so I'm starting one here...

How do you think the climate change/global warming will affect the Olympic Winter Games and the bidding process?

Here, we can also post links to materials/articles about the subject:

Global warming a threat for the Olympics?

global warming will have significant effect as it will further limit a city's ability to host. with warm climate certainly affecting snow qualities. a handful of skiing world cup races in europe was cancelled due to warm weather.

No affect on reality.

Lots of affect politically.

You mean:

"No affect on reality, Lots of effects politically".

Sorry, affect vs. effect is a pet peeve of mine.

Affect is a verb, effect is a noun.
