Climate Change A Threat to State Ski Industry: Report

Climate Change A Threat to State Ski Industry: Report

UNH report is stating climate change as a big threat to the state ski industry and so has the report been issued by the proponents of tougher regulation on carbon emissions, who are looking forward to protect the multibillion-dollar winter sports industry.

The officials said on Thursday that the release of the University of New Hampshire study is clearly showcasing that the New Hampshire's winter tourism industry is heading downhill due to warmer winters and so is the time immediately demanding some tougher steps to prevent the industry from any losses.

The 36-page analysis named under "Climate Impacts on the Winter Tourism Economy in the United States," has used data of New Hampshire as one of the five case studies to openly document the economic consequences of winters to the concerned authorities forcing them to get strict with the issue.

The report has added warning the officials that more winters with lesser snowfall can increase, if aggressive efforts are not taken to mitigate climate change. It claimed a loss of $54.3 million to New Hampshire ski resorts with every low-snowfall winter as 17 percent fewer skier will visit the region as compared to the high-snowfall winters.

The report's authors suggested, "Without intervention, winter temperatures are projected to warm an additional 4 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century, with subsequent decreases in snow cover area, snowfall and shorter snow season".
