Skip to comments.Climate change pushes poor women to prostitution, dangerous work’ (more alarmist nonsense)

The effects of climate change have driven women in communities in coastal areas in poor countries like the Philippines into dangerous work, and sometimes even the flesh trade, a United Nations official said.
Climate change could reduce income from farming and fishing, possibly driving some women into sex work and thereby increase HIV infection," Mukherjee said during the Wednesday launch of the UNFPA annual State of World Population Report in Pasay City.
Of the 92 million Filipinos, about 60 percent are living in coastal areas and depend on the seas for livelihood, said former Environment secretary Dr. Angel Alcala.
Alcala said that we have already exceeded the carrying capacity of our marine environment."
But as the seas resources are depleted due to overpopulation and overfishing, fishermen start losing their livelihood and women are forced to share the traditional role of the man in providing for the family.
Alacala, who also heads the Angelo King Center for Research and Environmental Management in Siliman University, said some women often pick out shellfish by the coastlines, which exposed to storm surges.
Women who can no longer endure this work often go out to find other jobs, while some are tempted to go into prostitution, Alcala added.

Also note how prostituion and "dangerous work" is nothing new, and has nothing to do with "climate change"
These kooks must stay awake nights making this stuff up.
Is this a contender in the “Most Ridiculous Thing Global Warming Has ‘Caused’” contest?

Prostitution in the Phillipines?? Anyone got any good WestPac stories? ;-)
Anyone have that list of things caused by gobal warming?
“The poor Phillipines; 400 years as a convent, 100 years as a whorehouse.”
"Climate change" turned me into a newt.
AlGore is her pimp?
Yeah, it’s like the Philippines and Thailand just discovered the demand for prostitution . .
LOL..seriously ,how DO they think this stuff up?
Yeah; Hostesses selling Twinkies to deprived Ding-Dongs, thus ringing chimes in all climes.
By God then we have to "change" the climate to save these poor women and ease their minds.
How much do they need for me to contribute?
Or is it more lucrative if I promote it through action?
Well of COURSE, because women are forced into prostitution by MALE-DOMINATED society, and the ultimate outcome of that is, MOTHER EARTH IS RAPED. Oh, sorry. ;’)
The real whores in THIS story are the global warming fraudsters.
Climate "scientists" like those at East Anglia Climate Research Unit have a bigger budget than they can spend on thermometers and computers. With a large budget to spend before the end of the fiscal year they go to a "conference" in Bangkok and spend £100,000 on prostitutes. And that's on top of all of the pay per view movies they charge to their universities' research budgets. Thus global "warming" leads women into prostitution to tap into that cash.
What evidence do I have? Well, exactly the same amount that the warmists had when recommending that taxes go up by trillions of dollars worldwide - absolutely zero. But that won't stop me either.
I don’t think climate change will, but the complete collapse of American society WILL force women into prostitution.
AGW Alamism Fuels Prostitution; Lures Women Into Sex Trade! Details at 11:00!
Yeah, cuz women in cities frequented by the world’s navies have never been known to offer fleshy temptations to long-denied sailors before the global warming crisis came upon us.
At least ACORN is gearing up for this new green economy opportunity...
This article is so crazy! My husband flew over to the Phillipines repeatedly in the late 70’s early 80’s through to about 85 and was always accosted by prostitutes there!
For several years they flew to the PI and flew shuttles to Diego Garcia for 30 days at a time and he said the hookers in the PI were about as thick on the ground as the lizards!
Having spent over a year there and been on these islands, Leyte, Samar, Luzon, Los Negros, Mindanao and Cebu, I can safely say there was absolutely no such thing as prostitution on Fort Drum and at that time Corregidor.
