+ - "Green" Ice Resurfacing machines fail in Vancouver->

Submitted by lurking_giant
lurking_giant writes: The Seattle Times is reporting that the Men's 500 meter speed skating was delayed or more than an hour Monday evening by the breakdown of the 2 ice grooming machines at the skating oval. The real story is that the machines that failed were the latest state of the art Resurfice — Fume Free Electric Groomers leased to the Olympics committee. An old propane powered Zamboni had to be brought out to fix the ice. This makes 2 nights in a row with ice re-surfacing machine failures.If you're going to spend twice as much on electric devices to replace non green designs at least test the things first.
