Ski event nixed in too-warm, climate change denying WI

Right-wing GOP Gov. and climate-change denying Scott Walker sees annual, world-class cross-country skiing event canceled for lack of snow
Days of unseasonably warm temperatures and rain forced the cancellation of the American Birkebeiner, the world's largest cross-country ski race, officials announced Friday.
It's an annual, multi-race, $20 million boon to the local economy, with 11,000 skiers and 40,000 spectators.

Let's see if Walker's science scrubbing PR types or local GOP US Rep. and fossil fuel-friend/clean air enemy Sean Duffy can spin it as a welcome early beach day.
