UN exploits gender issues to hustle climate treaty

Bending logic to exploit gender for the UN's climate treaty push

Gender and climate are hot topics at the United Nations COP 19 climate conference in Warsaw, Poland, but what does gender have to do with climate? CFACT joined with members of Texas Eagle forum today to brief the press on UN attempts to link global warming to gender politics.  The UN is exploiting gender issues to hustle its new climate treaty. They are distracting the media and public from the lack of credible scientific evidence supporting man-made climate change using issues like gender.

The halls of the UN conference in Warsaw are littered with pamphlets, flyers and articles desperately trying to link gender to climate.

They are just distracting from the real issues here. If the climate crowd truly cared about women’s issues, they would focus on the link between poverty and affordable energy instead of wasting time, money, and resources on policies based on junk science.

A new climate treaty would do nothing meaningful to alter global temperature and would do even less for gender issues. The real reason women and men are affected adversely by natural disasters is due to inadequate resources and access to energy.

The developed world has less gender inequality than those in developing nations. This is

because wealthier nations have developed using affordable, reliable resources like coal, natural gas, oil, and nuclear power. To deny developing nations access to these same resources would be morally wrong.

“Flying on a plane, driving a car, using a washing machine, having a smart phone or tablet – these are luxuries that we enjoy and take for granted. Every person at this conference has access to these things. Yet the UN is advocating for policies that will deny others these amenities,” stated Cathie Adams of Eagle Forum. “Ban Ki-moon is a prime example of someone who has lost touch with reality and his lavish lifestyle is proof of his hypocrisy.”

In order to eliminate global problems like gender inequality, hunger, poverty and disease, developing nations must have equal access to affordable energy. A new climate treaty would do absolutely nothing to solve these problems, but would trap men and women alike in poverty.  That is the true tragedy.  We advocate a constructive world with energy and prosperity for everyone.  That is the way to lift all women to the genuine equality they have a right to.

    These people are just plain brain dead control freaks.

      The latest global cooling witnessed all over the world since November 1982 is caused by a planetary synod that prevented the sun from releasing its thermally convected hot plasma by reducing the net solar gravitational force downwards by attracting this material in the net direction of the combined field of this transient grouping. The convection is reduced in efficiency. This heat builds up after several decades and releases that excess over the following decades: cold then hot, cold again then hot again, these synods, also called grand planetary alignments, are of different strengths due to the varying perihelia and aphelia of the four gas giants, especially Jupiter which is the closest to the Sun and more massive than all other Solar System’s planets and moons combined.

    Apart from fraud and corruption which obviously benefits all who are attached to it. What use is it?

    Indoor air pollution in developing countries kills more than 3.5 million a year, almost all are women who cook the food over fires. Environmentalists block bringing in electricity or propane.

    1.8 million people die every year from contaminated drinking water….mostly children and women. Environmentalist block over and over bringing in energy that is required to run and operate sanitary systems and drinking water systems.

    UN, WHO and several others set up pandemic response systems and clinics including vaccines. Extend one electrical line out to a clinic? Oh No, said the enviro fadists, that’s bad for the environment…let’s put in a solar panel at 290% the price…..Now the doc has to decide between using a light bulb in the clinic or running the refrigerator with the vaccines. Who suffers? Women and children.

    The ethnocentric fadists who have either never been out of the country except high school trip or are looking for funds for their pockets could care less about the damage and the deaths they cause.

      I hope that the ideological aspects of environmentalism will be challenged before it actually happens to various societies and economies around the world. Also, in my view, republicanism is just a tip of the iceberg. I wonder why? Someone needs to find out soon. – J.P.K.
