– Tokyo Governor Warns 2016 Olympics Could Be Last Due to Global Warming –
The governor of Tokyo, the largest city in the world, had this to say on the eve of the vote where his city was considered one of the finalists to host the 2016 Olympic Games:
“It could be that the 2016 Games are the last Olympics in the history of mankind .. Global warming is getting worse .. We have to come up with measures without which Olympic Games could not last long.”
Tokyo was officially eliminated as a potential Olympic site due to the fact their governor is a complete idiot.
This dude is too stupid to host a game of hide-and-seek let alone the biggest sporting event in the world.
Even by standards of trying to get a parking spot in downtown Tokyo, predicting something is going to be “the last in the history of mankind” is a wildly ridiculous statement.
You might as well predict Godzilla is going to kill us all some time in the next decade because there’s a better chance you’ll get stepped on by a giant lizard than being killed by the temperature in your city going up half a degree over the next century.
Handicappers in Tokyo had 100-1 odds city would get the Olympics even before governor spoke…
