'It Could Be That the 2016 Games Are the Last Olympics in the History of Mankind'

What better reason could there be to award the 2016 O-lympics to the corrupt Chicago machine? Oh, you mean this quote isn't some scare tactic from Obama and friends? Well, no, it's not. It seems global warming hysteria has also infected the brains of some in Japan.

How pathetic.
Tokyo governor Shintaro Ishihara warned on Wednesday the 2016 Olympics could be the last Games, with global warming an immediate threat to mankind.

Tokyo is bidding to host the 2016 summer Olympics with Chicago, Rio de Janeiro and Madrid also in the running. The International Olympic Committee will elect the winning candidate during its session on Oct. 2 in the Danish capital.

"It could be that the 2016 Games are the last Olympics in the history of mankind," Ishihara told reporters at a Tokyo 2016 press event ahead of the vote.

"Global warming is getting worse. We have to come up with measures without which Olympic Games could not last long.

"Scientists have said we have passed the point of no return," said Ishihara.
Plenty of scientists have also said this is nonsense. I prefer to side with the sane and rational, not the hysterical.

Although if Chicago indeed does get the games, I hope President Palin is kind enough to invite the Obamas to join her for the opening cermonies.
