Short-sighted snowmen

 

Do recreational snowmobilers care enough about the future of their sport to lobby for global reduction of greenhouse gas emissions ("Snowmobiling for science," HCN, 6/9/14)? Snowmelt is occurring earlier every year, and that is directly attributable to global warming. While snowmobilers are worrying about "large closures," they ought to worry even more about shorter and shorter snow seasons.
