Winter Olympics Are at Major Risk from Climate Change. Why is NBC Silent on the Subject? – February 9, 2018

Environmental groups launch Twitter storm pushing netork to end its 'climate whiteout'

Environmental and public health groups are launching a "Twitter storm" on Friday to compel NBC to end its "climate whiteout" and cover the impacts of global warming on the Winter Olympics. So far, the network, which calls itself "the proud home for all US coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang," has failed to address the fact that increased temperatures due to climate change are threatening the future of outdoor winter sports.
