There is a war between those who say that the climate is changing and those who say that it isn’t, why don’t you come on back to the war, don’t be a tourist!

    i thought the war was rather between those that say its man-made and those that deny it…

    I don’t think anyone tries to deny women’s involvement in this – and climate change here refers to human made (in paraphrased verse).

    come to think of it, its an obvious consequence of partiarchalism that women are less responsible for climate change than men, no?

    Possibly. But patriarchy works through all of us, and even though there are clearly less female board members directing the most polluting companies (or just companies), look no further than to Hillary Clinton (Wal-Mart board member) or Indira Gandhi (tyrant) or Margaret Thatcher (capitalist warmonger) to find women directly responsible for the destruction of ecosystems.

    A more shocking consequence of patriarchy with regards to climate change – insofar as we consider climate change as natural disasters (floods, storms etc.) – is that More women die than men as a result of natural disasters”:

    “Professor Neumayer said: ‘The feminists got it right. Natural disasters are a tragedy in their own right but in countries with existing gender discrimination women are the worst hit. While most disasters cannot be prevented, policy makers, international and humanitarian organizations must develop better policies to address the special needs of women in the wake of large-scale natural disasters.’

    However, I am a bit concerned about Neumayer’s choice of words (special needs) and the general fact that the research has been conducted by two men at one of the most elitist growing fields for capitalist warmongers (Blair went there) is also a bit, well…. sort of.. but what is more odd is that there seems to be no clear numbers… nevertheless, still a terrible thing and probably true….
