baitSkiing itself is not green. Groomers run on diesel, lifts are powered by a coal/gas electrical grid, and the sleds that mountain ops ride around are filthy 2 strokes. Not to mention the lengthy commutes that skiing incentivizes for people to get to the hill, and no skibum drives a Tesla.
Its really an oxymoron. Skiing which relies on a cold climate is a major greenhouse gas producer.
The best solution I have found is to deny climate change and claim its a Chinese hoax, hope that works.
nelesonNot from the US so can someone explain what this pow is
killaTrumpI can’t be the only one that noticed that protect our winters or POW only gives money to socialist politicians who want to “fight” climate change with forced government coercion. They SHOULD give money to researching cleaner technology instead so we skiers can keep skiing instead of turning American skiing into communist Russia where we are waiting in breadlines instead of lift lines
CaptainObvious.Lol. Ur cancer.
BitcoinOk, so if you really want to protect the environment (looking at you ski resorts) probably stop making manmade snow? I'd imagine all those chemicals are horrible for the environment.
TOAST.You mean water and air?
theLiquorI have so much love for this thread I believe in the strong possibility manmade activities are altering the globe but POW is just finger pointing and blaming others for your misfortune. Speaking of commie shit, they wouldn’t let my car that runs off E85 pass emissions because it didn’t come stock from the factory that way. Shit has nothing to do with actual climate change just a way to cover “corporate” interests for lack of a better term (or a lack of my further intelligence and vocabulary).
but when you look into movements like POW and emissions, there is always an underlying financial interest backing it. Because there has to be, government doesn’t just do things out of the goodness of their heart
nolliebackflipIt's so sad that all the people in politics who want to stop climate change are some social justice warriors with no sense of reality.
freestyler540It's so sad that all the people in politics who don't want to stop climate change are all old egocentric billionaires with no sense of reality.
T.L.e85 is a joke. It might be great for some engines to run on but subsidizing the growth and production of inedible corn using up all of our arable land so that we can feel good about putting a "natural" product in our cars is just about the most retarded thing western civilization is doing right now.
Actually, I take that back. The mining and extraction of lithium for all of our precious batteries might be dumber. Pumping fresh water into the desert just for it to evaporate takes the cake.
