Oui, oui, le réchauffement de la planète affecte surtout les femmes!
Ne vous moquez surtout pas! Car si vous avez l'audace d'être ironique, alors pour Mme McKenna, vous n'êtes que des "gender climate deniers", une sous-catégorie de climato-sceptiques.
Ça ne s'invente pas des cons pareils.
Extrait de la nouvelle:
As Canada’s Environment Minister pushes forward plans to dramatically cut carbon emissions, she is lashing out at “gender climate deniers” who fail to acknowledge that in a warming world, women fare worse.
Such people are a “grouchy subcategory” of climate deniers, Catherine McKenna said after hearing from outraged critics on social media who mocked the notion that “climate change is sexist.”
(...) Did you know, the former lawyer wrote, that climate change “is not gender neutral? Women are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than men.”
(...) In an interview Monday, Ms. McKenna said she was “surprised by the vehemence of some people’s comments,” but said it’s time the world “recognize that as we develop polices, we look at how do we support women, how do we support women’s rights. That’s a theme of our government – it’s been set by the top by the Prime Minister. And I think it’s a key piece in the climate discussions which is sometimes lost.”
Sur quoi s'appuie Mme McKenna pour déblatérer de pareilles sornettes?
Ms. McKenna pointed to a United Nations fact sheet that lists how women’s “unequal access to resources and to decision-making processes” leaves them less mobile and therefore more vulnerable. The large numbers of female farmers in developing countries, meanwhile, are uniquely susceptible to climate changes that make “traditional food sources become more unpredictable and scarce. Women face loss of income as well as harvests – often their sole sources of food and income,” the UN says.
Sauf que, voilà, ses sources n'ont aucune crédibilité:
(...) But elements of the argument do not hold up well to scrutiny, including the notion that women are poorer than men, and therefore more vulnerable.
In 1995, a UN Development Programme report produced a much-cited statistic that said “women still constitute 70 per cent of the world’s poor and two thirds of the world’s illiterates.”
(...) Ms. McKenna, too, said on Twitter that “the majority of the world’s poor are women, and their income is dependent on natural resources that are threatened by climate change.”
But there is scant factual basis for parts of that statement.
In 2008, a scholar at the London School of Economics surveyed South American countries and found that while women are poorer in rural areas, “differences are for the most part, fairly marginal.” In the urban areas of 10 out of 17 countries, meanwhile, poverty was either equally distributed, or worse for men.
In 2013, a World Bank “state of the poor” report plainly stated that, worldwide, “the poor are equally divided by gender.”
The UN itself has disavowed its previous number: “I conclude that the citation of 70 per cent of the world’s poor are women is inexplicable except as a mistake,” Robert Johnston, former chief of statistical services at the UN Statistical Division, told Politifact in 2014.
Mais ne vous en faites pas, ceci ne devrait pas ralentir Mme McKenna et ses coreligionnaires féministes. Ces gens-là ne sont pas reconnus pour leur grand amour de la réalité.
Lorsque des études viennent contredire leur éternel discours victimaire, elles l'ignorent, tout simplement.
