Pond hockey heats up
Date:3/5/2012

oss the country, the researchers discovered that only a few of the weather stations showed a trend towards later start dates of the outdoor skating season. A much larger proportion of stations, however, showed a statistically significant decrease in the length of the skating season over the past half century.

The results paint a grim picture for the future of outdoor skating. The largest decreases in the skating season length were observed in the Prairies and Southwest regions of Canada. By extrapolating their data to predict future patterns, the researchers came up with some ominous news: within a few decades, we could see a complete end to outdoor skating in British Columbia and Southern Alberta.

No Canadian region is safe from that fate. For Matthews, it's clear that we are all vulnerable to continued winter warming. "It's hard to imagine a Canada without outdoor hockey," he says "but I really worry that this will be a casualty of our continuing to ignore the climate problem and to obstruct international efforts to decrease greenhouse gas emissions."

"The disappearance of outdoor hockey rinks and probably cross-country ski trails is not going to be good for the health of our youth and the leaders of tomorrow, who need all the exercise they can easily get." said McGill Emeritus Professor, Lawrence Mysak, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences.
