Ski Dubai 2050?

Escalating security costs for future games may be be just as big a deterrent to future games as changing weather patterns. While the terrorist community might not currently have the ability to disrupt the games, the threat that they might is enough to perhaps make the costs of staging Winter Olympics not workable.

Salt Lake City projected to still be good in 2080, so there's that.

Another article of complete drivel. 

 

First of all, the Winter Olympics have grown in scale.  After Lillehammer the IOC explicitly stated they wanted the Olympics to be in an urban center that could accommodate big arenas, have more hotel space,etc.  Anyone else think cities like Torino, Vancouver and Salt Lake might have higher temps than earlier sites like Lake Placid, Innsbruck and Lillehammer?

 

And of course the future temperature projections are driven by positive feedback assumptions which triple the effect of CO2 alone and are not supported by the data fo the past 15 years.
