Canadian Climate Minister Urges Attention to the ‘Gendered Impacts’ of Climate Change

by THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D. 10 Mar 20183407

Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change is urging environmental activists to address the “gendered impacts” of climate change, especially its effects on women and girls.

In a recent post on Twitter, Catherine McKenna, the 47-year-old Trudeau appointee from Canada’s Liberal Party, called on followers to “consider the gendered impacts of climate change on women, girls and children” while praising Canada’s leadership in training “women negotiators” in the fight against manmade global warming.

Apparently, at least in the minister’s mind, the weather is now waging its own “war on women.”

I am shocked by the narrow minded gender insensitivity displayed by Catherine’s comment.

How can you possibly consider the gendered impacts of climate change without also considering the transgendered impacts of climate change? Why restrict the training program to women negotiators when there are so many other under-represented genders? Of course I am using the word transgendered in its broadest sense, no offence intended to people who identify as perigender, vapogender or any of the constantly growing list of other genders.

The climate’s “war on women” is as ephemeral as the moon’s impact on the typical honeymoon.

B.j.

That’s a relief as its now Women made global warming. Lol.

Headline – World ends tonight – WOMEN AND MINORITIES HARDEST HIT!!!!

Well, they invented hot flashes, didn’t they???

I heard it was the manufacture of Blond Catherine McKenna Barbie dolls working 24/7 over little computer’s to calculate Climate models favorable to the green blob vision, that are contributing to the woman made climate change disruption and that nasty Co2 presently ravaging Canada!
Warning Ban on all Co2 Fizzy drinks coming soon to all insane nations soon!!!!

The Expulsive

We are dealing with a government here that seems to be more concerned with the ephemeral nature of many things, which like shiny objects attract their attention for the purposes of a headline or virtue signalling. When they don’t achieve what they spoke of, they quietly move on to a new message signaling their commitment to some other virtue and hope no-one remembers. In trade they talk about the same importance, resulting in rejection by places like China. In internal trade they fail to uphold the need to trade what we have to trade, letting the Marxist leadership of BC dance its happy dance.

John Harmsworth

As a Canadian it’s embarrassing but on the other hand they apparently have a constituency for this intellectual tripe. However, Justin is down a fair bit in the polls and a recent national survey says 70% of Canadians think we should have balanced budgets. I cling to hope but he’ll probably win the next election, maybe with a minority.

MarkW

The problem with a balanced budget is that most people think it should be balanced by raising taxes, on other people, and by cutting subsidies, used by other people.

F. Leghorn

They aren’t worried about anyone remembering their previous lies. After all – we’ve always been at war with Eastasia.

Let’s face it we men are just bastards that are responsible for everything that’s wrong with the world. Well us and divorce lawyers

Tom in Florida

Yeah but god made us that way so why blame us. That’s my excuse and I am sticking with it.

RHS

Marriage, the only reason for divorce lawyers.

eyesonu

Research has shown that 97% of divorce cases involved marriage. Correlation or causation?

BCBill

Sorry, it is only the tiny minority of men who are of Western European origin who are bastards. Don’t you know that none of the other men of the world are ever sexist, racist or damaging to the environment. I know that must be true because every single day CBC interviews people who assure me that Canada is the worst place in the world. They only moved here to save us from ourselves.

DonM

Yep, you would be very hard pressed to find an African-American that is sexist, and/or treats women poorly, in any way at all.

Will they ever put a cork in it?

M.W. Plia.

Not anytime soon Steve.
It’s rather amazing. In Ontario (where I live) and the rest of Canada our educated, political, media and corporate elites do not publically question Al Gore’s alarmist AGW narrative.
Other than places like WUWT I’ve yet to witness a detached and reasoned explanation of the uncertainties surrounding the issue. IMHO the deception has infected the whole planet.

Colin Peterson

it’s not that bad. Mulroney said she was going to cancel the carbon tax. I bet Doug Ford will do the same. his platform is not out yet, but he mentioned Tanya Allen in his speech, and she is more conservative than Mulroney Tanya is endorsed by Brad Trost who openly declares global warming to be a hoax. so with Tanya a certain in the new government Ontario may become more climate change denier than Trump.

M.W. Plia.

You may be right Colin. Hopefully Ford will bring some long needed balance to the discussion of the importance of “The Green Energy Act” and the logic may spread to the rest of the country.
Ontario is one of the best (worst?) examples (per capita) of the $damage man-made global warming alarmists can do. A fiscal boondoggle of waste unmatched in Canadian history.
And it’s approaching $100 billion so electricity prices can only go up. Shutting down coal (even though our air quality was and remains superb), refurbishing old nukes (that should have been de-commissioned), building huge, costly wind and solar parks with the necessary and also costly conventional back-up and finally, the excess power from wind, solar and nuclear sold to the spot market for a fraction….total $fiasco and no reason for it.
All they had to do was keep the coal going, shut down the old nukes and hook up to Quebec’s abundant hydro power…but what do I know?….instead double digit $billions of debt….madness, just madness.

Ontario (with one of the best environmental records in the world/one of the worst environmental records in Canada) is 97% made up of pristine wilderness. Along with the rest of Canada, Ontario has the most to gain from a little warming. Yet they are doing untold harm to their economy in a hopeless attempt to curb warming. It is the offspring of the guilt complex of the wealthy.

Climate Barbie is yet again showing her insanity.

No this is straight out of the ICC playbook from the last COP meeting. I commented at the time it was strange the whole gender push to climate change.

Climate Barbie is the perfect ( I initially typed ‘pertfect’ now isn’t that ironic) companion to your Ken doll PL. I just loved his excruciatingly sycophantic ‘dress ups’ during his Indiaa trip. At first I thought the pics just must have been Photoshopped but no they were real. OMG, he is like some 14 yo who was awarded “PM for a week” for beeing soooo pretty. Have we seen anything like this since the floating world of Versailles in the 18th century or do we have to go back to first century AD Rome and Caligula or Nero?

Maybe not. She’s living it up in Cancun in late winter, on the taxpayer’s dime. Nice work if you can get it.
Meanwhile, the Brietbart article quotes another snowflake woman living it up on the Mexican Riviera that’s just too funny that I must quote it here:

Environmental activist Leehi Yona has written that climate change is connected to an array of issues spanning from transgender justice to immigration reform.
Writing in The Nation, Ms. Yona denounced the President for his appointment of a string of “climate-change deniers” before expounding her own theory of the centrality of climate change in understanding every other issue.
“Climate change isn’t just about the planet. It’s about justice: racial, social, socioeconomic, reproductive, and environmental,” she wrote. “It’s about immigration reform, LGBTQIA+ rights, and religious freedom.”
“I find myself unable to think of climate change on its own,” Yona writes.

GHowe

I believe she does not like being called that, even tho that who she looks like and is maid with a plastic personality. Perhaps she is one of these new fangled robots w AI I keep seeing stories about. A woman like that makes me head for hills.

Canadians being upset by global warming, man-made or not, is in keeeping with our national objective to be economic failures. Based on that objective, Climate Barbie is the “man” for the job.

I may have posted this before but it fits here better.
For seventy-five winters I have grown old
But seldom have seen a New Year so cold
Supposed to be warmer I’ve heard them say
Was not very obvious, this New Year’s Day
To fight climate change we have to pay
Taxes on heat to keep winter at bay
It’s becoming a sin to drive to the store
Cause driving our car will make it warm more
Excuse me for saying I think it’s a crock
Our leaders only tell lies when they talk
I think it is funny a Canuck can be told
We have to pay more to make it stay cold

Jeff Labute

I find “B” for “bi” perplexing since it refers to Male and Female, and not gender. Once we convert Bi to mean gender, then we will get an infinite number of variations… example, we now must add ‘Tri’, and ‘Quad’, which add more gender categories/letters so now we have to add ‘Quint’ and ‘Sex’ which is more gender categories and therefore more combinations of genders you can be attracted to… and so on. There could be some people who are dodeca… attracted to 12 different genders. Counting the days to the end of the liberal reign.

Greg

Wow, I was really out of touch with the choice of “genders” we have these days. It’s better than the choice of self-mixed paints at your local DIY shop.

“Biogender: a gender that feels connected to nature in some way”

Jeezus, we even have something that “feels” related to nature? Maybe that is just there to cater for the odd freak who still thinks gender has something to do with biology and the reason we are on the planet and not politics.
Hey, I’m a biogender ( dick’n’balls flavour ) !! I feel so much better now I know who I really am !

LdB

I have a mate who is at the Non PC end of the spectrum and he is seeking to be recognized as a toaster for his gender. He figures if these idiots want to open things up that wide he is going to take the mickey out of them.

Don’t forget sprenchgender, which encompasses those of us whose gender is defined by an all-consuming passion for sprocket wrenches. And by the way, we absolutely insist on our own pronouns, which as I’m sure you all know, are zhing, whang and b’dong.

Hi Max,
A long time have I watched this one and I must confess that I no longer think she believes what she says (any more anyway).
Just an intuition.
It’s like she has just found a niche that pays well and sheer cynicism keeps her going at this point post-red-pill.

Greg

Wow , that is one seriously dumb bitch. Not the slightest idea of how stupid you sound saying the majority on people in a country are “still the minority” ( despite being in the majority ).
If women want to be treated equally they really need to stop talking this kind of decisive, hypocritical shite.

Mick

When men hand the leadership to the women folk, this is what happens. Every. Time.
Next, they lower the voting age and by proxy, women hand the reigns over to the teenagers.
Eventually you get a 16 y.o. PM. Seriously, you think that can’t happen, when men give up?

Doug in Calgary

RockyRoad

Did you get the part where Tucker asks her about men opening doors for women, and she replies that opening doors for some women would be considered abuse and NOT opening doors for other women would be considered abuse, too!
So are women going to be required to put signs on their forehead indicating their preference, or will we just have to avoid women altogether?
I can see two types of signs:
“Open a door and I sue, buddy”
or
“Failure to Open a door and I sue, buddy”.
Talk about abject, pure, and unadulterated INSANITY! (Although I nearly laughed until my sides ached at that contradiction.)
And that’s not the first time this woman has be-clowned herself on Tucker Tonight.
Yet I must digress: should I call her a “wo-person” because the word “woman” contains that nasty word “man”? Or has “man” suddenly become the exclusive domain of the feminine gender and those of us with an extra appendage must find another word; perhaps “mo-person”, but I’m just guessing: There’s no logic with insanity.
These people are circling the drain and they’re dragging everybody else down with them.

John Harmsworth

How about locking the door so she can’t get in? What’s she gonna say about that?

barryjo

“There is no logic with insanity”. Why then, do we keep engaging with them? Just ignore them.
I once held a door for a female coming along behind me. She started with the “What are you doing? I can open my own doors, thank you.” My reply was ” So sorry. I thought I was dealing with a lady. Obviously I was mistaken.”

Richard of NZ

No the word person includes the word “son” which is male sexist. To use a non-sexist made-up word perhaps wo-per-offspring would suit. Wo-child is no good because child is usually ageist.

Wopeople, to follow Justin’s rules.

Gunga Din

Abolish the word “Mailman”?
What would she replace it with?
“Femailman”?
What a kook.
PS Why is it that anyone who disagrees with what the (US) left is promoting is filled “hate” or has a “phobia”?
How “inclusive” is that?
Would this gal send everyone to jail that is allergic to nuts? 😎

Coeur de Lion

I feel harassed. Who do I sue ?

Since 2017 when a pressure group successfully lobbied the Canadian parliament, you no longer “sue”, you now “kevin”. It was thought that the verb “to sue” was oppressing women of that name because of its unpleasant connotations.
That said, I don’t know who you should kevin about this.

As this woman seems to discriminate against men, I’m not sure.

LdB

You sue everyone and often apparently for gender bias.

John V. Wright

The Labour party in the UK – the right-on home of all that is Politically Correct – has got itself into a delicious bind, much to the delight of everyday folk. This is the political party that long ago adopted women-only short-lists for MP candidate selection in some parts of the country in order to try and find a more ‘gender-balanced’ House of Commons which they see as too ‘male, pale and stale’.
With the advent of men who are ‘transitioning’ to be women, these po-faced guardians of gender neutrality have been vociferous in the media that such people must be treated as women even if they only self-identify as women and are just at the start of their ‘journey’. The women MPs of the Labour party have been particularly noisy about the need for everyone to accept that these men as women, one even tweeting that “just because you have a penis does not mean that you are not a woman”.
Then, horror of horrors – these transgender blokes started applying to join the all-women groups of candidates for MP selection. Cue squeals of outrage from yes, you’ve guessed it, female Labour MPs who insist that these lists are only for ‘women who were born as women’. They even formed a secret committee to identify those who were promoting trans-men to join the short lists and getting them expelled.
That’s the thing about those who demand we all change our societal attitudes to the latest political show-pony cause celebre – it only applies to US not THEM.
Needless to say, this hilarious tale of unintended PC consequences has been massively ignored by those hard Left bastions of British ‘journalism’, the BBC and the Guardian who are so morally transfixed by this unexpected dilemma that they cannot bring themselves to write about it.

Big problems with the petitioning of governments and corporations to promote women to higher positions of authority are: a) the ones doing the advocacy are political activists of a certain ideology, b) the women successfully being advocated for are very often beholden to those who lobbied to get them to their higher position.

“Person” is sexist because it has the word son in it which carries the freight of enforced gender stereotypes. Please use the phrase “anthropogenic climate change”, because absolutely no one knows what that means.

‘Anthropos’ is Greek for ‘Man’. Therefore, ‘anthropogenic climate change’
is ‘climate change caused by men’.

The reality is that the climate change we have been experiencing is caused by the sun and the oceans over which women and girls have no control. There is no real evidence that CO2 has any effect on climate and plenty of scientific rational to support the idea that the climate sensivity of CO2 is zero. The climate change that we have been experiencing is so small that it takes networks of sophistic sensors to even detect it yet this climate change has been going on for eons and will continue to go on whether woman and girls are still here or not. We must be careful to not mix up weather patterns and cycles which are part of the current climate with real climate change. We should not be waisting time, effort, and money trying to solve problems that we, including women and girls just cannot solve.

Perhaps Ms Mckenna should also consider that women and girls are also the ones who gain the most from the carbon based economy. All that time that they currently spend collecting drinking water and firewood could be much better spent if they had access to mains electricity and piped water.

Mike Schlamby

Yet another example of the “women and girls” madness (a.k.a marketing campaign):
I walk through a large transit hub daily. There’s now an advertisement there from some UN body saying that “water is unfair” because women in undeveloped countries have to go to the well and carry it back, and so therefore I should give them even more of my hard-earned money (they leave only poorly specified what they would actually do with that money).
It made me wonder why those women, if women are so smart, don’t organize themselves to build aqueducts (if they can’t afford pipes and pumps) from the plentiful stone that they trip over on their way to the well. The ancients did it.
It also made me wonder why, after decades of similar such campaigns (5 that I can remember), they still haven’t advanced.

drednicolson

If they did, they’d stop being heartstring-pullers and the contributions would dry up.
It’s the ultimate flaw of Big Charity. If it solves the problem it claims to want to solve, it loses the justification for its existence. And the administrators (read: bureaucrats) lose the justification for their paychecks. So only half-solutions are pushed, which always leave the original problem with a starter crop.

The March of Dimes is the only charitable organization that I can think of that successfully transitioned once it’s original goal was achieved.

Global Warming Is Now A ‘Women ’s Issue’ Due To ‘Ecofeminism
Environmentalists are increasingly claiming that global warming is a “women’s issue” and that the world needs “eco-feminism” as a path forward.
snip
Ecofeminists believe that women and nature are bonded by traditionally “feminine” values and their shared history of oppression by a patriarchal Western society. This patriarchal society is built on four intersectional pillars of sexism, racism, class exploitation, and environmental destruction.

Your analysis explains a lot, including why white male trade unionists are such insincere bleeding hearts.
At bottom are the billionaires who think there are way too many people on earth. Not content with birth control, abortion, feminism, safe sex and same sex to reduce the rate of new births they seek higher food prices for an outright reduction to population.
Americans who travel in Canada notice two things. Both energy taxes and food prices are much higher north of the border. Taxes on energy are the cause because food production is energy intensive.
At the behest of the billionaires governments yield to enviro demands for higher energy taxes and food prices, compensate the Indians who in their own words “walk softly on the land”, fund feminism and obstruct development.
The above amounts to the worship of nature which the billionaires expect to enjoy more when the ” useless eaters” are gone.

What exactly are the “Gendered Impacts’ of Climate Change”? She failed to point them out in her tweet.
It’s all just another emotional appeal to promote CAGW. The Alarmists are flailing around in every direction to try to find something that will successfully sell the CAGW narrative. So now they try to make it out to be a gender thing.
They keep trying to sell CAGW but nobody is buying. That must be frustrating for the Alarmists.

The useless third of the population, consisting of hairdressers, tired TV producers, insurance salesmen, personnel officers, security guards, management consultants, telephone sanitisers, and the like, were packed into the ‘B-Ark’, one of three purported giant Ark spaceships, and told that everyone else would follow shortly in the other two. The other two thirds of the population, of course, did not follow and “led full, rich and happy lives until they were all suddenly wiped out by a virulent disease contracted from a particularly virulent telephone”.
The B-Ark was programmed to crash-land on a suitably remote planet on one of the outer spiral arms of the galaxy, which happened to be Earth, and the Golgafrinchan rejects gradually mingled with and usurped the native cavemen, becoming the ancestors of humanity … ”

Take a guess where it landed?

I must apologize to Catherine McKenna. I realize how right she is. It’s simple: women, and especially children, are shorter than men. So, when the sea level rises from climate change, well, they go burbling under water first. Sorry, Catherine, I was too stupid to realize this.

Rob

I wouldn’t fret about it to much. When climate Barbie goes dancing, she straps on her jackboots and does the goosestep.

WBWilson

High-heeled jackboots.

This is such an absurd reach that women will recognize this as transparent attempt at identity politics. All but the most gullible or political women are far smarter than to fall for this nonsense and have more pride than to feign acceptance this sex pandering as a legitimate issue.

Tom

All I can think of is, that’s the face of vacuity.

Gamecock

More proof that climate change has NOTHING to do with the environment.

Catcracking

Unable to logically provide information on climate change this woman desperately resorts to the typical leftest approach of resorting to claims like racism, or women’s rights devoid of the facts of how constantly demeaning men has a negative impact and American men are actually in crisis.
Tucker Carlson provides some inconvenient facts.

She has a valid point. Should the alarmists agenda pass and the world descend into the energy poverty they desire, poor children and women are likely to suffer the most.

LdB

Exactly how do you figure the woman and children will suffer more … what exactly are the men doing at this point living on another planet?

Tom Judd

Yes. Women are from Venus. Men are from Mars.

Mick

Men are from Earth women are from earth. Deal with it.

Men are from Mars and feminists are from REEEEEEEEEEEE

ITs a matter of income, single women supporting children are likely to have less money available to pay for the ridiculously high prices of renewables.

I’ve read that global warming is turning all sea turtles into females. Is that what he’s talking about?

“When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail.”
By analogy, when the only thing you think you understand is gender, everything begins to look sexist.

DonM

When the only intellectual tool you have is an appeal to emotion, everything begins to look “ist”.
(I have a nail-gun & air compressor).

Well the article did say that it was “manmade” climate change, which shows that it is obviously an assault on women. I am surprised that Trudeau did not specify that it was “peoplemade” climate change, but then again, he may agree it is all men’s fault.

Quote: “Of course I am using the word transgendered in its broadest sense, no offence intended to people who identify as perigender, vapogender or any of the constantly growing list of other genders.”
I don’t thing an apology is necessary to those mentally ill people who can’t figure out their own gender by taking a quick peek into their own drawers.

John Darrow

‘a quick peek into the FRONT of their own drawers’ – with cases like these you must be specific!

(Slightly OT re gender & climate)
Let’s take the ‘Canada and CO2’ argument (in the Warmists’ eyes) to its logical conclusion.
If CO2 were the control knob; and if reducing CO2 lowered global temps; and if lowered temps reduced the margin between current climate and the next glacial onset…wouldn’t a push to reduce CO2 by Canadians arguably be a push to hastening their own demise by inviting the Ice to ‘march again’ and cover the bulk of its land?
Seems to me that anyone who loves Canada would push for exactly the opposite… (btw I am not saying I buy into that cause/effect.)

EternalOptimist

As a woman, I can tell you that I do not support this in any way shape or form. And as a man, I think its pretty daft too.
I look at Barbie and I identify a new gender, the CondecenderGender

Christopher D Hoff

As a Canadian, I’m embarrassed. But it makes perfect sense that anyone dumb enough to believe in an anti-male gender supremacist hate ideology would also be a Luddite when it comes to science(with apologies to Luddites).

Eyes Wide Open

Expect no less from Climate Barbie!

Let’s find a place where we can welcome all the Socialists in the world so they can gather in one place to live their ideology. We can call it Venezuela. Next we can find a place where we can welcome all the people that believe sexual identity is fluid and they can make up their own minds and have other people pay for their self identified sexual fantasy (not to be confused with those that know what their sexual identity is and don’t feel the need for others to know). We can call it California. Last on the list is a welcome spot for all the people that believe using fossil fuels is a crime against humanity. We’ll call it Africa. Problems solved.

The STOOOPID runs very deep among LEFTISTS.

At least the truly stupid have an excuse sometimes. Not so for the smart-stupid, or smarpid.
