Hazy sky for opening ceremony of 2008 Olympics
There has been no improvement in the sky today for the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. It is a little disappointing, but I am sure it won’t affect the opening ceremony too much. It could be worse.
“The weather conditions today aren’t conducive to the dispersal of pollutants,” said Guo Hu, who heads the Beijing Meteorological Observatory.. “Temperatures are high, humidity is high, one must take precautions against heat strokes.
“The humidity might prove to be an issue, it takes a bit of getting used to,” Patrick de Geode, a technical specialist for Namibia’s cycling team, said in an interview. “The problem might be for the mountain bikers because the speed is slow and there’s less cooling winds.”
And the wise one speaks:
“The fog does not mean necessarily pollution,” IOC President Jacques Rogge said yesterday. “We prefer clear skies but the most important thing is that the health of the athletes is protected.”
