    Climate Change Could Make Olympics Less Global

    By next century the UK might be hosting every other Olympics, because of climate change

    Akshat Rathi, September 1, 2016 (Quartz)

    “…[As climate change intensifies, only 33 cities in the northern hemisphere of a plausible Olympic size are reasonably likely to be cool enough to host the summer Olympics and half of those will be in Britain, according to The last Summer Olympics? Climate change, health, and work outdoors from University of California at Berkeley researchers. The] standard of whether a city can host the Games is whether athletes can run the marathon…In the US Olympic team trials this year in Los Angeles, where peak temperatures reached 25.6 °C (78.1 °F), only about 70% of the elite athletes taking part finished their race…

    [Of northern hemisphere cities with populations larger than 600,000, only 33] met the temperature criterion…[They include] San Francisco, Vancouver, and Calgary in North America, Bishkek and Ulaanbaatar in Asia, St Petersburg, Riga, and Krasnoyarsk in Eastern Europe, and The Hague, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Helsinki, Malmo, Dublin in Western Europe. The list has 15 cities in the UK (Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, London, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, and Southampton)] because it’s among the most populous of the top 10 countries considered least vulnerable to climate change… A 2014 study showed that, by 2080, only six out of 19 former host cities will be cold enough to host the winter games.” click here for more
