VIDEO. VIDEO. Consumption that makes your skin crawl.
The Beijing Winter Olympics, which will take place from February 4-20, 2022 in the most arid region of China, will be dependent entirely on artificial snow blowing by 300 cannons.
These are the latter, whose criticisms can be heard, and they work fast to make trails in the middle mountainsides that remain for their part desperately brown. As you can see, the video below shows:
According to an official estimate, the cost for water resources will be around 185 million liters per venue for all Olympic venues. It is not uncommon for such high water consumption to occur in areas that are susceptible to drought.
The organizers argue that the cannons are powered by electricity from renewable sources and that water will eventually return to the ground following melting. The Beijing Olympics will still be the first Winter Games that use 100% artificial snow.
