36 Year Climate Change Record Found in Cycle Racing Footage

I recently stumbled across this article from National Geographic. What caught my eye was the reference to cycling.  My husband is an avid mountain biking cyclist and watches The Tour de France every year.

I’ve learned about cycle racing by osmosis; just being in the same room as the television. The idea that video footage of a race held in the same place every year could show evidence of climate change was intriguing.

I just HAD to read the article.

    Thanks for the link, Chris. I note another link to work by John Magnuson of U of Wisconsin, among others. The suggestion of using Tour de France video is questionable, because the same points are not passed often enough to make much of a sequence.

    Interesting article on our ever changing beautiful planet. Why do people want to destroy it??? Go figure.
