Press Clippings: In the middle of the Winter Olympics, this article from the weekend New York Times points out the fragile future of snow, mountain resorts, skiing, and–yes–even the Winter Olympics, if nothing is done about global warming. ┬áDespite the cold U.S. winter, the very unusual shifts in weather patterns, the snow in the south, science–not emotion–shows that the planet is warming and that snow is going to be in very short supply by the year 2100. With that in mind, it seems like the perfect time for this very important piece.
