Women bear the brunt of climate change
hindu.com ^ | 12.7.11

Posted on 12/10/2011 3:08:52 PM PST by InvisibleChurch

Women, particularly those living in the mountainous regions in developing countries, face disproportionately high risks to their livelihoods and health from global warming, says a U.N. report on Climate Change.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) report titled ‘Women at the Frontline of Climate Change: Gender Risks and Hopes' says investing in low-carbon and efficient green technologies, water harvesting and fuel wood alternatives can strengthen climate change adaptation and improve women's livelihoods.

The report was released at the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP17) in Durban, South Africa, according to a press release issued by the ICIMOD (International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development) headquartered in Kathmandu.

Impacts of climate change, such as droughts, floods and mud slips are affecting a growing number of people worldwide, according to the report.

The UN can go pound sand.Did they not get the memo that GW climate change whatever new name they give it was proven FAKE by scientists.The dude on the weather channel even says it’s fake.

The only brunt anyone is taking is the brunt of being forced to borrow from peter to pay Paul to pay Freddie and be broke with no COLA’s from Obama idiotic policies.

Of course they do — they have to listen to the stupid leftist stooge they’re married to, or dating, or living with, drone on and on about the AGW flim-flam. They suffer terribly as a consequence. Thanks InvisibleChurch.

True story, I was in Chicago during a hot summer's day about five years ago and heard a TV anchor say “And check in on those who could be more affected by the heat: the elderly, children, poor and minorities.”

Impacts of climate change, such as droughts, floods and mud slips are affecting a growing number of women otherwise trying to put on their makeup and resulting in a disproportionate number experiencing saggy hair.

They’d eventually grump about something the man of the house did and just give that brunt to him, anyway. I don’t see what difference it makes.

The only thing missing is an article showing that white-males contribute more than their fair share of CO2.

NASCAR pics would prolly work.

It’s true. Each movie and every story about Mexico, the Caribbean, and other areas known for their warm weather features a disproportionate number of young, beautiful women - frequently with little or no clothing to protect them from the sun’s heat.

As a female Floridian, I get to wear skirts or dresses and open-toed shoes to work. The men have to wear pants and regular, hot shoes.

But really, the question is: Would Laz hit those who have already been hit hardest?
