ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of the climate change on the cross country skiing. It notes that planet Earth was finely balanced and such change is enough to shift all major physical systems in significant ways. Several examples are given to show how climate change has been affecting the oceans and glaciers around the world. However, cross country skiers are making a stand against climate change and calls for everyone to help in their own little way to prevent global warming.
