파리 – 지구 온난화는 스키장이나 골프 고스에 어떤 영향을 줄 것인가? 리조트 운영자들이나 관광 여행 운영자들에 미칠 영향은 막대할 것으로 보인다. 최근 스위스의 다보스에서 열린 한 UN 회의에서, 한 관광 문제 담당 UN 간부는 관광지 마다 모두 기후 변화의 영향을 받을 것이며, 관광 여행 상품에 큰 변화가 예상된다고 경고했다.

But, though they may be less adorable than penguins and less gripping than melting ice caps, resort owners and tour operators will be directly and strongly affected by climate change. Indeed, few livelihoods are more dependent on the weather, other than farmers'. Last month, organizers of a U.N. conference in Davos, Switzerland, sought to hammer that point home to officials and tour operators from nearly 100 countries. "The entire tourism product will be affected," said Geoffrey Lipman, assistant-secretary general of the U.N. World Tourism Organization, "Every destination has a climate-related component." Speaking by telephone from the meeting, Lipman said if the climate was going to change, "which we know it will, we'd all better adapt." A changing climate is the only certainty, he said. What kind of change and how it will affect a nation's tourism industry will depend on where you are and what you offer. Indeed, climate change in some places may actually provide opportunities.
