Climate change and ski resorts

Climate change and ski resorts | Texas Coast Living | Scoop.it

This is the first in a three-part series about climate change as it relates to the ski industry. Just think about the coastal areas, if mountain tops are worried.

Michael Stuart's insight:

Of course climate change has natural cycles over long periods of time — thousands of years, or at least hundreds — but it’s really hard not to conclude the impact humans have on it.


People who don’t believe that climate change has to be affected by the population of humans and industrialization.


That mainstream thinking is prevalent within the ski industry, as energy-saving initiatives, environmental programs and activism have become the norm.


But the scientists known as climate change skeptics or deniers point to everything from faulty weather models, biases and political influence as proof that mainstream beliefs on climate change are nothing more than irresponsible groupthink.


Just think about the coastal areas, if mountain tops are worried.
