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.

Another great example of Democrat genius ... on a par with Hank Johnson worrying that additional troop deployments to Guam might cause the island to tip over and Sheila Jackson Lee asking if the Pathfinder robot had taken a photograph of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969.
Will Rhode Island tip over into the sea, too?
The rising of the sea level is the result of continuous tectonic movement
He should be worried about continental drift
Then they can have sea battles in them, like they did in the Roman Colisseum.
Soldier Field in Chi-Congo is in trouble then.
Gees! Another Senate DemonRat Looney - Toon!
Well when they have the NHL Winter Classic, no need to bring in water. It’ll be frozen already LOL.
I guess Mile-High stadium in Denver is at risk.......................
Could this finally mean the end of the Dallas Cowboys? Maybe?
He’s a Democrat. Maybe we expect too much...
super genius like Wylie E Coyote
Only a Democrat could be that stupid.
Give him a shiny object.
He’ll be distracted for hours. Then maybe he’ll go away.
“...following a closed-door climate discussion with executives from the NFL, NHL and NBA.”
Why are execs from sports leagues meeting with a senate loon from an insignificant state about something that only exists in the fevered imaginations of libtards and statists?
I suspect this is just cover for some kind of crony deal, where the sports stadiums get more tax money and the sports teams help make him and his cronies more popular with the voters.
Climate change is almost always cover for such deals.
I’m really in the wrong line of work. Of course, I coulnd’t spew this kind of pablum without a smirk the size of the Titanic spreading across my face, so it’s probably better I remain desk-bound, and not try to become a politician.
Finally, you found a new scam for Algore!
We must give up all of our freedoms and most of our money to stop continental drift!
The only thing that can help us now is to give large amounts of money to the Government!!!
Do it for the children.
Maybe they could make a PSA about how kids will suddenly be “eliminated” if they don't believe that chewing gum causes man-made continental drift.
Will they press the 1010 button?
That’s true. it would take only a very slight shifting of the plates beneath eastern New England to make Rhode Island disappear from the map altogether.
