    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) warns sports stadiums are at risk from the "sea level rise effects of climate change," and that climate change specifically threatens hockey and skiing.
    "We see significant sports facilities, the palaces of - of sport that are at risk from the storm, climate, sea-level rise effects of climate change," Sen. Whitehouse said today following a closed-door climate discussion with executives from the NFL, NHL and NBA.
    He said the threat to hockey is that people will no longer be able to play outdoors on frozen ponds:
    "Without cold enough weather for frozen ponds, the kind of hockey that you play out of doors with your friends gets a little bit harder to achieve."
    Whitehouse also suggested climate change will prevent his family from continuing to go skiing in Rhode Island:
    "I took my kids skiing at Yawgoo Valley ski slopes in Rhode Island. The New York Times recently reported that we can expect all the ski slopes in Connecticut and Massachusetts to be gone.
    "Obviously, given Rhode Island's location, if that's true of Connecticut and Massachusetts, that will also be unfortunately true of Rhode Island."
    The senator is no stranger to such Chicken Little scare tactics. In May 2013, Whitehouse blamed Republican inaction on climate change for deadly tornados in Oklahoma.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    See this is why I laugh when people say "When you attack the person and not the position you have lost the argument."

    Some people are just so stupid they need to be told that they are stupid. When will someone tell a guy like this, in a very public way, that he is one IQ point above a chimp?
