Women are at greater risk from global warming than men, claims MEP in 'bonkers' EU row

A bizarre row has broken out among EU politicians over whether climate change is a feminist issue.
Members of the European Parliament will vote today on a report by a French Green party MEP who claims global warming is not gender neutral.
Women, claims Nicole Kiil-Nielsen, consume more sustainably than men and show greater willingness to act to preserve the environment as they tend to organise household consumption and childcare.
She said that discrimination against women could be made worse in the developing world if climate policies do not take gender discrimination into account.
She was yesterday subjected to a withering attack from Marina Yannakoudakis, a Tory MEP for London, who called her motion bonkers, baseless and bad for women.
The report Women and Climate Change calls for a 40 per cent female quota on all EU delegations in climate negotiations and on the committees that allocate climate aid from member states. Funding is set to reach £62billion a year by 2020.

Samich makin is hard. It even harder when it hot.
So git me a beer while you up.
"No. Me. Give it to me!"
Women care about the earth more than men.
Women are more responsible than men.
But women are emotionally unstable and should not be allowed to hold positions of political power.
Oh. Did I cross the line? Was my stereotype bad? I should just stick with their stereotypes?
I don't think I'll play the game that way.
and the insanity of the know-nothings acolytes of the “global Warming” religion abounds.
“Women, Sex Deviates, and the Poor hardest hit”, as always.
Heh, heh. Women and minorities hardest hit.
These folks crack me up.
I am an european and despair at the way Europe is shaping up. Crazy MEPs, islamization of the continent, lose of free speech, technocrats at the elm of the EU to name but a few nightmarish problems.
I shall look at moving to America, if you get rid of Hussein Obama in November. I don´t see the point of moving if he is still in charge, a muslim at he head of America is as bad as in Europe.
Why, will it make hot flashes worse?
Maybe they fart more—and I KNOW sometimes theirs are more POTENT than men!!
“The report Women and Climate Change calls for a 40 per cent female quota on all EU delegations in climate negotiations and on the committees that allocate climate aid...”
I think I’ve located how “global warming” may be a women’s “green” issue - money may be involved.
I think I finally have it figured out:
Governments are now run by people who watch stand-up comedy and think they’re seeing a public policy seminar...
Okay, I'm outta here, running...
What? Women can’t swim?
You can tell the AGW/IPCC CO2 scam has collasped by how DESPERATE the SOCIALIST DEMOCRATIC LEFT gets with the propaganda.
is this from the Onion?
LOL that’s funny.
I consumed more susttainably just today, And I still have a quart of sustainably in the fridge.
It’s all part of the republican’s war on women. Use the climate to destroy minorities and women. Then all that will be left are white men (Republicans). Pretty clever, huh?
