They look like the “perfect” youth in all their Olympic glory and backdrops and may well be a strange “breed” of human being, being able to do incredible feats of strength, speed and athletic prowess but in reality OUR Olympic Youth are not only “human” but also very very INTELLIGENT!
With UN elitists and power mongers ever standing in the background like Ban Ki Moon who seems to show up to every event and in every “Global Parade” one would think that these athletes would be a rather Green Loving Group of corrupt purveyors of the Global Warmers.
This Olympics has shown only 105 athletes out of 3,000 have echoed the ridiculous lies that surround FAKE GLOBAL WARMING!
Could it be that their parents at home in the COLDER climes of the world are tweeting and e mailing each and every youth with the cold reality of their hometown: “It’s F’n COLD HERE SWEETY!”
To the Ban Ki Moon’s and Suzuki’s and Gore’s of the world: Your done, finished,kaput…….STFU!
SHUT UP AND SKI: 105 Olympians conned into calling for climate treaty… good news is 2,795 Olympians NOT conned.http://goo.gl/j3L68u
U.S. Ski Team Member Andrew Newell and 105 Winter Olympians Call for Climate Action

(Pacific Palisades, Calif.) – Today, US Ski Team member, 2014 Olympian Andrew Newell, 105 Olympians and Protect Our Winters released a statement calling on world leaders to take action on climate change and to prepare a commitment to a global agreement prior to the UN Framework Convention in Paris in 2015.
“Recognize climate change by reducing emissions, embracing clean energy and preparing a commitment to a global agreement at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris 2015.”
The letter has been signed by 105 Olympians from countries that include: The United States, Switzerland, Norway, Estonia, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Italy and Sweden. In addition to Newell, some of the 105 athletes include: US snowboarders Danny Davis and Arielle Gold, Switzerland’s Bettina Gruber, Norway’s Astrid Jacobsen and Italian ski jumper Elena Runggaldier.
This year alone, nearly half of the FIS cross country World Cup international competitions have taken place on artificial snow. Even last year in Sochi, several pre-Olympic skiing and snowboarding events had to be canceled because of poor conditions, something that has been a consistent problem both in Central Europe and Scandinavia. Snow conditions are becoming much more inconsistent, weather patterns more erratic, and what was once a topic for discussion is now reality and fact. Our climate is changing and we are losing our winters.
Given this, and after having seen climate change affecting his local training grounds in Vermont, Newell decided that the Olympics would be a good opportunity to galvanize the global community of winter Olympians, raise the level of awareness at the policy level and take action on a global stage.
The athletes are calling on world leaders to come together at the UN Framework Convention in Paris in 2015 to finally take bold and immediate measures to tackle climate change.
“We know that as the snowpack declines, the sobering economic impacts start to impact communities everywhere”, says Chris Steinkamp, POW’s Executive Director. “Having this quantity and caliber of Olympians make this statement this week should be one more wake up call for world leaders.”
