Climate Panel Brings In Experts On Gender, Migration Or Something

This is totally about science, though, right?

Climate panel invites experts on gender, migration, climate change
Discussion emphasizes universal impact of climate change in Latin America, Caribbean, Middle East

On Friday, Jan. 28, Director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies Nadje Al-Ali and Director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies Patsy Lewis invited four experts to participate in a virtual panel discussion on the intersections of climate change, displacement and gender. The event, called “Climate Change and Displacement: Experiences from Latin America and the Caribbean and the Middle East,” was co-sponsored by the Climate Solutions Lab at the Watson Institute and was also streamed on the Watson Institute’s YouTube channel.

“Our two centers have been collaborating on a number of issues already of global interest,” Lewis told The Herald. “We have been trying to see how … problems are manifested in different regions and how the responses might be similar or different.”

“While it’s important to zoom into the specifics of either the Middle East, Latin America or the Caribbean, it’s also important to de-exceptionalize the regions and look at commonalities and differences as well,” Al-Ali said.

During the panel, speakers discussed limitations and challenges to female migration, the responsibility of governments to address climate change and migration, as well as how intersectional characteristics such as race, class or education nuance the topic of migration.

You know what I’m not seeing? Any actual scientists

Panelist Dina Najjar, social and gender specialist at the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas, emphasized the importance of field work and participant observation in gender studies, especially in the Middle East and North Africa. In one instance, Najjar observed women irrigating in Egypt despite speaking with  male farmers who insisted Egyptian women did not participate in the activity.

“Impacts of climate change are gendered,” Najjar told The Herald. “They’re not the same. We need to optimize on women’s abilities to participate in … mitigation measures.”

No, no, these people don’t sound like hardcore Progressives at all, do they?

    Aah, more “experts”. What an exciting time to be alive.

    Science is not in the slightest democratic. 500 science “experts” telling Galileo he was wrong did not remodel the (true) reality of the universe. And therefore we should not humor the insane, just because they happen to have overwhelming political power these days, and call their DELUSIONS ‘alternative realities.’ Because that is playing into their postmodern delusion that words outrank (physical) reality. Instead I am tempted to say we should invite the ‘wokeist’ of the bunch to prove that gravity is just a ‘social construct’, from the top of the Empire State Building. I nominate Hussein for that privilege.

    The definition of Democrats: Scared, stupid and easily manipulated.

    Lets go Brandon, we need a new “crisis” the folks have wised up to the last three.

    Teach: You know what I’m not seeing? Any actual scientists

    It was a discussion on the possible disparate impacts of global warming depending on race, class, sex and education.

    Conservatives: “We need fewer discussions and more killin’!!”
