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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

“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.

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.

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.

Honeymoon= The newly-wed pair retire somewhere into each other’s exclusive company for 28 days (a moon) and the drink fairly copious amounts of mead (fermented honey) – something almost guaranteed to cure any/most/all inhibitions.

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.

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.

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.

“… Golgafrincham is a red semi-desert planet that is home of the Great Circling Poets of Arium and a species of particularly inspiring lichen. Its people decided it was time to rid themselves of an entire useless third of their population, and so the descendants of the Circling Poets concocted a story that their planet would shortly be destroyed by a giant mutant star goat. 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 … ”

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?

Does “freezing one’s balls off” count as a “gendered impact “of climate change? If yes, then I am quite dismayed that the “gendered impacts” discussed above seem so narrowly defined (exclusively for women and children). Not surprised, of course, … just dismayed.
Perhaps this is my wake up call to get a sex change operation, since the parts that would be frozen by a climate shift toward cold would now no longer be an issue, and I could then join the legion vocal activists championing the causes of every nuance of modern sexual identity conceivable, excluding, of course, the traditional delineations [that’s just old fashioned, man … uh, … woman, … uh, … whatever).

Whatever the Canadian government says about the necessity of fighting climate change should be taken, not with merely a grain of salt, but the whole box. In order for it to meet its Paris commitments of reducing its emissions to 17% below 2005 levels by 2020, it would have to shut down the country’s entire electricity sector plus almost of its agricultural one. To reduce these emissions to 30% by 2030 would require the shutting down of the whole transportation sector plus 66% of the waste disposal. Considering Canada couldn’t come anywhere close to meeting its Kyoto pledges and finally pulled out of the whole deal in 2011, and considering that between 2013 and ’14 it reduced its emissions by a mere 5 megatonnes annually, it will again fall far short of any targets. A couple more things to consider: surveys show Canadians are 60% opposed to any carbon taxes and are making few moves to adopt Green technologies. So it’s obvious climate change is strictly a low priority item on the citizens’ to-do lists. In fact, most consider any carbon pricing as little more than a tax grab.

I would like to apologize as a Canadian for the pronouncements of “Climate Barbie”…not to insult the intelligence of all the Barbie dolls… She, unfortunately DOES represent the IQ of the current Liberal Government of Justin Trudope…Trudeau. We can only hope this is a one term Government.

I await a study on the negative impact on the environment by females….
[The mods are quick to point out that most males earn their money specifically to keep their families warmer, better fed, and more happy than if they did not work. The energy and money needed to keep the typical male happy (beer, a steak) is much, much less than that needed to keep a family happy (the rest of the budget). .mod]

Liberalism wherever it is is a social disorder. There are examples everywhere. Liberalism need to be capped, The media has raised it to a level of pure stupidity and the masses are ignorant.

Political stupidity is like a radioactive element. In small concentrations it does little noticeable damage. It needs to be concentrated to be hazardous. Or you can get a similar effect by being exposed to it for long periods—-like a carbon tax built into budget assumptions and spending programs.

Also, such liberal stupidity adds to the confirmation feedback to Xi and Putin to seize power for life. The chaos of real elections is deemed inefficient and dangerous.

Hadn’t thought of that. I can envision Putin sitting there with a glass in his hand, his feet up shirt half buttoned saying,
“See. Look what could happen if we let ’em decide for themselves. They blabber about freedom and try to justify the cost … but just look at the result. I don’t want that bitch in my face at any cost.”

In keeping w/the cultural marxism, Climate Barbie can’t be addressed as a she. So should it be “it”? I vote for she-it.
[And the mods vote for a very careful pronunciation of the phrase “she-it” in conversations. .mod]

Of course. Definitely two-syllables, w/a slight pause between. 🙂

“We need to consider the gendered impacts of climate change on women, girls and children. I am proud that Canada is training up women negotiators so that we have more female voices around the table”
First, show ANY real impacts to ANYONE.
Then you can break it down to specific harm groupings.
When you do it in reverse order it becomes obvious that you have no basis, and are just reaching for an undeserved sympathetic response.

Well, I don’t blame Justin Trudeau. I blame all the stupid turds that voted for him.

Facebook in the UK recognises 71 genders. I hope they are taking them all into account.

She is from the gender “stupid beyond belief.” However, her boss, Justin Trudeau, easily exceeds stupid beyond belief. There was a collective brain fart in Canada the night this government was elected. Methinks the smell will leave the country after the next election.

Don’t you just love it when their real agendas show themselves pathetically veiled as climobabble. That she is an idiot is not in doubt. That she uses her over promotion to this position as a platform for the real outcomes she and her string pullers want which are nothing to do with equality because how can you claim equality and actively promote only one gender? I get angry with this stuff because of the level of cynicism involved.
