Another "reach" by one of Canada's most infamous Attention Whores:

Quote:
One benefit of the National Hockey League strike: it gave people time to play outside on real ice! But outdoor skating could face the same difficulties as the NHL -- a drastically shorter season or outright cancellation. Research from Montreal's McGill and Concordia universities shows global warming is already having an effect on outdoor rinks in Canada.

"Many locations across the country have seen significant decreases in the length of the OSS [outdoor skating season], as measured by the number of cold winter days conducive to the creation of rink ice," their study states. "This is particularly true across the Prairies, and in Southwest Canada, which showed the largest (and most statistically significant) decreases in the calculated OSS length between 1951 and 2005."

This echoes a 2009 David Suzuki Foundation report, "On Thin Ice: Winter Sports and Climate Change." The McGill investigation looks at constructed outdoor rinks while DSF's focuses on frozen rivers, canals and lakes, but the conclusions are similar. Both predict that, unless we rein in greenhouse gas emissions, outdoor skating in parts of Canada could be history within the next 50 to 100 years (the McGill study's authors now say it could happen within 20 to 30 years), and the length of the outdoor skating season will continue to decline across the country.

That would explain why I can't get a backgriunbd ice rink going. Either that, or the fact that I live in Vacnouver.

Yup, the bubblers on the lake near me can't keep up with the current cold snap.

One guy's boat slip is already at a 45° angle.

Phht... standby for all the skating injuries that could have been prevented had the pro-pool types stopped the madness.

In other news today The pro pool association published a press release strongly condemning the freezing of pools. Saying it was an act of deliberate sabotage by the anti pool lobby who had done this and had nothing to do with the weather. Security was being beefed up in all pools as of today to prevent further pool freezings !
