SOS: Save Our Snow! Global warming is a very serious threat to the entire world, including the world of winter sports. As the effects of global warming are expected to manifest themselves most severely at northern latitudes and higher elevations, skiers, snowboarders and all-around winter revelers face the prospect of less snowfall, a reduced snowpack and a shorter season for snow sports. according to Moore and Douglas (2006) in their article Global Warming and the Golden State, unless the emissions of human-produced ‘greenhouse gases’ (carbon dioxide) are significantly reduced, the earth’s temperature will continue to rise and we could see average temperature increases of 3 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century;” this presents a serious concern for winter activities. Worldwide, the snow-sports industry has begun to take action to combat the potential effects of climate change with the combined efforts of industry associations, resorts and snow- sports enthusiasts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
