Climate change has created a new generation of sex-trafficking victims
Quartz ^ | May 2, 2017 | by Justine Calma

When Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines in November 2013, it was, at the time, the strongest storm in history ever to make landfall.

After the skies cleared, a second humanitarian disaster unfolded in a sports arena where thousands took shelter. An underground economy took root as women and girls were sold for food and scarce aid supplies, or trafficked into forced labor and sex work by recruiters offering jobs and scholarships. Kristine says she was sold to men every night; some of the men were foreign-aid workers, she believes. The men raped her, and took graphic pictures and videos. Kristine was 13.

As severe storms and rising sea levels wear down coastal regions, women and girls are at ever-greater risk. Climate change is a new push factor for human trafficking; its effects destroy livelihoods and place women and children in post-catastrophe situations that traffickers exploit.

As thousands of families cope with the aftermath of these storms, national and global efforts to address climate change are in limbo.

US president Donald Trump has threatened to withhold $3 billion the Obama administration committed to the UN Green Climate Fund, established to help developing countries like the Philippines adapt to the effects of climate change. As the one-year anniversary of the signing of the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change approaches, it remains to be seen if Trump will follow through with his pledge to back out of the deal.

So now sex trafficking and prostitution is blamed on global warming???

Is there any problem in the world which is not caused or magnified by global warming???

Do these people ever realize that they have become parodies of themselves????

Climate change has also been blamed for the rise of Hitler and more recently, serial killers.

NO - rather, the UN and NGO leftists are "creating a new generation of sex-trafficking victims."

Its why “Climate Change” can be classified as a new CULT RELIGION.

it has all the attributes. Pagan ideology, earth worship, blind faith, a sinful man being punished for his wickedness....

Those crimes had nothing to do with global warming, and EVERYTHING to do with communist NGO people like those at UN Green Climate Fund.

American taxpayers should not be funding any NGOs, nor any religions group importing sub-humans into human civilization, nor any college or university that encourages uncivil behavior, nor any city or state that encourages illegal invasion.

Back in the 1700s and 1800s, before Global Warming took hold, prostitution was a lot less of a problem.

So let me get this straight. We’re supposed to only care about sex trafficking if it can be tied into Global Warming where it will be 10,999th on the list to solve? Got it. Along with its a personal choice to be caught up in sex trafficking according to the depraved left.
