Women more at risk from climate change: Canadian at UN conference
06:41 PM EST Dec 19

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Severe weather caused by global warming can pose greater physical danger to women than men, a Canadian attending a UN conference on climate change said Friday.

"For instance, often women don't know how to swim, so in a flood situation that can lead to a higher instance of death or injury," Angie Daze, a program manager with a Canadian group called Reducing Vulnerability to Climate Change, said.

Plans for international co-operation to fight global warming beyond the end of the Kyoto Protocol dominated the United Nations conference on climate change.

The top European Union negotiator said support was building for a proposal to hold a pair of international seminars next year to discuss additional measures to reduce climate change after 2012, when the landmark agreement ends.

"We're quite encouraged with the response we've received from a number of negotiating partners," including Australia, Mexico and Switzerland, chief EU negotiator Yvo de Boer said Friday.

The gatherings would serve as informal forums to begin discussing possible future emmissions cuts and other steps beyond the timeframe of the Kyoto Protocol.

De Boer acknowledged that deliberations at the conference may appear to be moving slowly, but stressed that progress was being made.

"The Kyoto Protcol is probably the most important international environmental agreement," said de Boer, a senior official in Holland's environmental ministry.

"To really embark on the next stage of discussions, which will have far greater implications, is very significant."

Meanwhile, scientists and environmentalists at the conference continued to warn participants of the dangers of climate change, which many believe poses a serious threat to life on Earth.

Caspar Ammann, a scientist and climatologist with the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, said temperature changes are apparent all around the world.

"You see the glaciers disappearing very rapidly, you see changes in vegetation and changes in seasonal cycles," Ammann said.

"It's not anecdotal that the climate system is warming."

"I think maybe in 10 years' time we will know a little better," said Shuzo Nishioka of Japan's National Institute for Environmental Studies.

Other speakers on the sidelines of the Dec. 6-17 conference said women in poor countries are particularly vulnerable to the effects of global warming, which has been blamed for causing more violent storms and rising sea levels, among other problems.

"Women are highly dependent on the environment for their family responsibilities" in developing countries, said one environmental worker based in Bangladesh.

"Any type of environmental degradation impacts them more severely than men."

Mr Benn

Yeah, NOW are also going to bring a lawsuit against Jack Frost.

A spokeswomyn released a statement saying that "The patriarchal weather that clearly oppresses all womyn and makes them feel unsafe must be challenged. It is important that patriarchal weather be made illegal so that once again the Earth Mother Goddess can reign supreme and rainbows will once again appear all over the planet."

BTW, did you hear the one about the weather reporter who had triplets? He called them Sonny, Gail and Claudia!

You know what this really is?  IT's  a form of Imperialism.  British imperialism by the City of London most likely.  

Either way it is definitly Imperialist Propaganda.

Meaning that they will have to go in there and set up little outlets to help women,  meanwhile those scumbags from the World Banks, who finance this shit,  go in and take all the booty in those "third world countries."  


This is unbelievable.

So... how about you give swimming lessons to people that can't swim ?
What the fuck does gender have to do with it

Is this not gender obsession at its worst ?

I don't know what to say.

Well at least it's good to know that feminists are working on dissolving male/female dichotomies !
o pity for feminazis.

Please tell me that this is a joke.  Perhaps this woman has never watched the olympics where, in spite of their gender, competing women seem to be able to swim quite well in several different events.   :roll:

You know, come to think of it, they almost never show the women coming back to the surface after the high diving event.  Hmmm...makes you wonder.
It's not illegal to be a man...yet.

It reminds me of this parody written by the legendary Per

It just goes to show that feminism is almost impossible to parody. :)

These freaking days you do not know what is parody or stupidity.

This remainds me especially about Jon Rays' Greenie Watch.
