Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) warns sports stadiums are at risk from the "sea level rise effects of climate change," and that climate change specifically threatens hockey and skiing.[blink] [blink]
"We see significant sports facilities, the palaces of - of sport that are at risk from the storm, climate, sea-level rise effects of climate change," Sen. Whitehouse said today following a closed-door climate discussion with executives from the NFL, NHL and NBA.
So tell us, Senator: will the loss of life be mitigated because the stadium parking lots will flood first, reducing the attendance as fans cannot find a place to park their Earth F***er pickup trucks?
Mark Twain once said Friend, assume for a moment that I am an idiot. And assume also that I am a Congressman. But I repeat myself.
And Hockey will be a victim of Climate Change®* because no kids will be able to find a pond to skate on. Yes, he really said that**:
"Without cold enough weather for frozen ponds, the kind of hockey that you play out of doors with your friends gets a little bit harder to achieve."But it's not Global Warming that melts the ice. No, no - it's "Climate Change". So hockey is doomed, because of Glob^H Climate Change.
That's right, sister - we're talking about you. Well, and the Good Senator.
The stupid - it burns.
* No, not "Global Warming". There's been no warming for almost two decades, so they can't call it that. But we're doomed, I say! Doomed! No more ice because of Global, err, change (or something).
