masterofnoneIf carbon emissions are not cut dramatically, the next century could really suck for skiers.
If the predicted 1-3 degrees celsius increase in global temperature occurs, then snow would become more or less nonexistent- hell, even the arctic would be ice free (during the summer) by mid-century. So basically, no more skiing for our kids or their kids, just about anywhere one earth. We could literally be one of the last skiing generations.

Steezenbreezealthough there would be no outdoor resorts open indoor skiing would become more popular, their are already places in dubia and europe that I know of plus ive seen some cool dryslope setups in line videos. I really hope it doesn't come to this but I have a feeling as an 18 year old im gonna need to buy a surfboard to keep occupied most of the time because im not counting on skiing being a big thing anymore in 2035.

Daveycrocit1010I'm sure it will continue to snow until you die
BarryMcKocinerThat is mostly true, but climate change is happening, not Global Warming. On the east cost temps could get colder resulting in more snow, while the west could suffer from drought & warm weather. Nobody really knows whats going to happen, but i sure as hell want something to change. plz obama
RusticlesIt might be the epidemic we need
.MortonI don't know if I'm interpreting this right but I think even though it's messed up it's probably right. People are not going to change what we're doing until it's too late, which some people say it already is, and the consequences are already taking place.
How can you trust these predictions if they can't even forecast 15 years correctly?????
The earth isn't warming, get over it.
Oh yeah, and that that US is snow cover is 15% above average.
kryptonicDont think of it as global warming think of it as climate change, so instead of just extremes heat wise its sort of goes both ways. Climate change can create extremes of cold and hot, the real issue is that it alters the jet stream so places that usually dont get a lot of snow might get more than average amounts of snow and vise versa, not saying your data is incorrect but just because snow is falling more than average does not mean climate change isnt real.
WVskiingHow about you get some data to back this up, because I have not seen any. Climate extremes are not occurring.
Dustin.This is just God's way of stifling progression. He won't stop until we are back to 5's and 7's with no grabs winning comps.
WVskiingAnd no one bash my data either, that is NOAA satellite data. RSS & UAH.
You can't deny it, thats real as it gets.
freeballerWe can't even predict what the weather is going to do 2 weeks out, so I'm skeptical of anyone saying that a 2 degree Celsius increase in temperature will do all these crazy things to the earth.
AK_Liberal propaganda. Prime reason to vote for Trump.
KennyfIf fusion power actually works, and people adapt to it, it might save skiing
Fusion power is a form of nuclear power. Instead of using uranium, it uses hydrogen from ocean water ( basically INFINITE energy) and the only bi poduct is water.
essentially, it is a clean safe way to make energy that doesnt harm the enviroment
all of the large science companies are working on it, Lockeed-Martin, Boeing, Nasa
its supposed to me 5-20 years away
THERES HOPE GUYS
Connor_SullivanIts scary stuff. But the worst of it is, without government intervention (large scale) no significant change is gong to occur. There needs to be a massive change in the way we live our daily lives... and every day that change doesn't come the clocks counts down a bit farther.
The.Natty.VeganGet fucked kid. Like 98% of all scientists agree climate change is a real threat and humans are the main cause. You're going to tell me you think you know better than the scientists who study this shit?
No, 33% said is caused my humans.
The.Natty.VeganI couldn't even find that image when I searched google for it. Well that goes to show how shit your source is. Get fucked if you actually think humans aren't the main cause of climate change. No one can be that stupid can they???
WVskiingHahaha, this is what NASA cited.
So there is no true Consensus
And scientist is not a consensus
moosevisionIn my opinion the theory of mad made climate change is pure propaganda and shady science at best.
The.Natty.Vegan" Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming" that's literally in like the first 3 sentences in the study.
But I highly doubt you have even read the study as it does come in the form of an easy to look at picture and requires some form of intelligence, that of which you do not possess. Only 0.7% of scientists disagree with climate change. Around 65% haven't made up their mind 35% of scientists who have said climate change exists 97% of them agree humans are the main cause.
GTFO kid, you sound alot like Donald Trump
