As COP17 Opens, Women May See Their Rights Erode From Climate Change

So, 20,000 politicians, bureaucrats, and actors took unnecessary fossil fueled flights to one of the furthest points on the map….sorry, I was going to try and tell a joke, but, the lead is the punchline. Anyhow

(The New Age) Climate change at face value may seem to have nothing to do with gender-based violence. But there are a few poignant points to think about, especially when considering the Zimbabwean scenario.

So, hot-cold-wet-dry-snow-no snow, it all causes women to be assaulted, all because 20,000 people took unnecessary fossil fueled plane rides for a climate vacation conference

More than three quarters of the female population live in communal farming areas where they constitute more than half of the farmers and provide 70% of the labour. Not only is the work of women farmers essential for food security, but most women are unpaid family workers.

Yeah? Welcome to the 3rd world sh*tholes, er, developing nations. If only there was a way to get them out of poverty.

For Zimbabwe, the past two decades have been characterised by extremes of weather. During this time, the country has gone through 10 droughts, resulting in less fresh water and destroyed biodiversity. In addition, our agricultural zones have now shifted. While some communities had to cope with a dry and sparse landscape, others have experienced the opposite as devastating floods persistently hit the lower Guruve.

See? You drove your SUV to the store, causing drought AND floods, which never happened before 1980.

Climate change worsens the situation for those living in poverty, creating a vicious cycle. Disasters due to climate change can take away people’s basic needs for survival and their dignity, as well as undermine any progress made in reducing poverty.

Wow, dignity? Those of you who drove your cars to work today should be put in jail. How dare you cause weather to happen?

Given that the majority of Zimbabwean women live in rural areas and make up the bulk of the labour force in the agricultural sector, there is going to be increasing feminisation of poverty. There is going to be a serious loss of livelihood to these women, all blamed on what is legally termed acts of nature.

Women will have to travel longer distances to fetch water, face greater challenges in terms of sanitation needs and bathing, for instance, thus becoming vulnerable to rape. Youths too and young girls are not going to be spared this ordeal. School-going girls are going to experience challenges in their education, possibly missing classes as they spend more time fetching water, or working in exchange for food.

This actually sounds much like the Occupy movements. They live in squalor, rarely bathe, have sanitation needs, and have been sexually assaulted and raped. But, moving on, the Warmists always amuse me, because they have this notion that there were no droughts, no floods, and perfect, homogenous weather prior to (insert date cited here), and it is going to get worse 50-100 years from now (which cannot be proven, and will have been forgotten about). They are truly climate flat earthers.

You know what is the biggest danger to women? Progressivism. Put women in the company of male Progressives, and they are sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, and raped. Progressives has this knee jerk faith in multiculturalism, which leads to tolerance of notions such as Sharia law (which treats women as second class citizens, allows them to be raped and beaten, among others) and honor killings. In today’s “feminist” world as pushed by Lefties, women are more violent, fight more, and end up in jail more. The Lefty ideals are bad for women.

    Zimbabwe is their example? Really? Get a life. Or STFU and go there with cash and food and water- mostly water- and hand out gallons of it to these poor gals who apparently have to walk too f-ing far to go to school afterwards. Geesh, spend your life doing something worthwhile, and leave us the f alone. If your cause is to see them have what Gaia has denied them, go there and correct it. And stop blaming us for this new lie. As Teach appropriately points out, there have been floods and drought for eons, and we cannot rule out more in the future. Ever. Check back in time, see if the area you live in was EVER under extreme conditions, and expect it to happen again. With or without fossil fuels…morons. Matter of fact, I am fairly sure that the whole world is due for an upheaval somewhere in a future time, and there ain’t a thing we can do to change it!!! Just sit back, pour a rum and coke, and enjoy…it’s going to be a doozy when it comes along!

    One must also remember that certain areas of the world are just not meant for habitation.

    From our own Department of State:

    Agriculture is no longer the backbone of the Zimbabwean economy. Large-scale commercial farming has nearly collapsed since 2000 under the government’s controversial land reforms

    Once again we find government intervention and the COLLAPSE of an INDUSTRY. How fitting……

    BUT

    Leave it to the MAIN STREAM MEDIA to go with a story that sounds good and attempts to further the cause of the Commie scam of AGW.

    And the MAIN STREAM (COMMIE) MEDIA shouted AMEN…..praise Global warm.

    Word and I are apparently on the same roll this morning! Grrrrrrrr.

  4. Well, they have to use Zimbabwe as an example because the majority of people in the world have never been there, so, they won’t understand that it is basically a shit hole, and has always been one. But, this way, they can paint a picture of how things are changing there for the worse, instead of basically being the same way that it’s always been.

    I do like that vid, Trish. Excellent.

    We here in the United States of America had similar issues long ago and we designed and built sewers and pipes and wells and pumps so we could have clean water without having to travel any distances.

    How come we had similar issues back when the earth was cool? It’s called population increase. 1 person sh*tt*ng in the woods and peeing in the river takes a long time to pollute it. Millions doing it quickens the process. It has nothing to do with climate change.

    If it’s all women, don’t they all go to the bathroom together? Saftey in numbers.
