Did I just read that?

Not a typo or mistake in language, but definitely flawed logic here. I realize the whole world is going through tribulations right now, and that people have spun the global warming thing to cover all kinds of political drives for funding. But this one was ridiculous!

"It could be that the 2016 Games are the last Olympics in the history of mankind," Ishihara told reporters at a Tokyo 2016 press event ahead of the vote.
"Global warming is getting worse. We have to come up with measures without which Olympic Games could not last long.
"Scientists have said we have passed the point of no return," said Ishihara.

 Could somebody please explain to me how Global Warming is a threat to an athletic competition?  I think this makes the list of stupidest things politicians have ever said.

Can't you see his point? Do you want it to be all Michael Phelps all the time? Keep the Olympics dry, I say!
