Aussie ‘Ambassador for Women’ claims ‘climate change’ causes rape! ‘Exacerbates the risks of sexual & gender-based violence’

From Climate Depot


“The consequences of climate change can exacerbate the risk of sexual & gender-based violence, especially those facing intersecting forms of discrimination including Indigenous women & girls,” tweeted Christine Clarke, the “Australian Ambassador for Women and Girls” on June 28, 2022. Clarke featured a video with her climate gender violence message. 

By: Marc Morano – Climate Depot July 2, 2022 7:07 PM

Christine Clarke’s bio claims she “advocates for gender equality and the human rights of women and girls.”

“As we confront the climate crisis, women and girls’ human rights, must be at the center of our collective efforts. Climate change and its consequences can exacerbate the risks of sexual and gender-based violence. This risk is most acute for women and girls facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and inequality, including indigenous women and girls,” Clarke explained in the video she posted.

“We stand with Pacific women and girls in responding to the climate crisis, including by providing negotiator training to support woman delegates from Pacific island countries to represent their countries in international climate change meetings,” Clarke said.

She added, that “women and girls’ human rights is an important part of securing the future of our planet and a better future for us all” and “addressing violence against women and girls in the context of climate change and the women’s peace and security agenda.”

Clarke was appointed to this position on January 31, 2022, by the Australian Government: “Today I announce the appointment of Ms. Christine Clarke CSC as Australia’s next Ambassador for Women and Girls. Promoting gender equality, the rights of women and girls, is a priority for Australia. As Australia’s Ambassador for Women and Girls, Ms Clarke will work to ensure that gender equality, and empowerment of women and girls, is a central focus of Australia’s diplomatic, development, and regional security efforts,” Australian Senator the Hon Marise Payne wrote.

“Prior to commencing in the role of Ambassador for Women and Girls, Christine Clarke worked with the Pacific Gender Section in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, on Reserve Service following completion of her lengthy full-time Navy career in June 2021.

Climate Depot analysis:

This is not the first time climate and sexual violence and/or rape have been linked. In 2013, United Nations IPCC Contributing Author Solomon Hsiang a public policy prof. at U. of Calif., Berkeley, co-authored a study in the journal Science claiming the following: ‘The study found that the rate of interpersonal violence, including assaults & rapes, increases 4% for every ‘standard deviation change in climate toward warmer temps or more extreme rainfall.” Intergroup conflict rises 14%’

Climate Depot’s Morano mocked the study at the time, stating, “Quick, pass carbon tax & prevent rape/murder! New Warmist study: ‘Between 2010 & 2099, climate change will cause an additional 30,000 murders, 200,000 cases of rape, 1.4’”

UN IPCC’s lead author Dr. Richard Tol also ridiculed the study in 2013, asking, “How long before a rapist argues ‘I’m innocent, climate change made me do it?” Tol added, “Climate change will not turn us all into rapists and murderers.”

Here are some Twitter replies to Clark’s linking of climate change and rape:

“50 years from now when historians look at why the Western Empire fell, they will look at videos like this and realize we voted incompetents into public office.This is what happens when your notes get mixed in with another topic.”

“Its competition to see who can say the most ridiculous thing out there folks.”Translated as, “I’ve got to justify my salary with a word salad speech filled with popular cliches so I can get back to doing nothing”

“That’s the strangest word salad I’ve heard for ages. Is this a parody?”

“You’ll need a chiropractor after the acrobatics you’ve performed trying to link the two topics.”

“It means that the ice caps melting will cause you to attack your wife. Just roll with it, it’s science.”

“Is there anything that’s not claimed to be ‘consequences of climate change?’”

“Progressivism 101: Leverage fear and grievances to achieve more government control.”

So I suppose there must be many fold more rapes in Florida than Maine because the temperature in Florida so much higher than in Maine. Let’s see what the data say……..

Oops it’s 38/100,000 in both. How about Maryland versus Maine since Maryland isn’t as warm as Florida but it’s still much warmer than Maine. Oops again! It’s 31 in Maryland still 38 in Florida.

The data must be wrong like so much in climate science. I’ll fix it tomorrow. It’s gotta conform don’t you know.

I think that “T” is referring to the women’s competition. Joe (maybe) still knows that he is male – and while Petey Boy may or may not be a “bottom,” he hasn’t said he’s “transitioning.”

BTW, has anyone else noticed that when DJT made a screw-up with “covfefe,” the media immediately went into attack mode? But he went along with the humor of it, and turned a finger-fumble into a plus. Whereas whenever this bunch in DC is completely garbled, the press secretary and the compliant media is all ready to tell us what he “really” said, we’re just too dumb to understand?

The first problem when a national leader is given a portfolio with interpersonal violence reduction as its focus is that interpersonal violence is always a local problem (this includes rape and domestic violence). A national office that is anything more than a data clearing house and communication facilitator for the local governments to see problems and share ideas will always fail to improve things. Usually they get in the way and make things much worse.

The second problem is never give a leftist a portfolio in anything. They will first cause problems then make the problems far worse with the solutions with the goal of subjugating everyone else to their will.

It is not fashionable to point out that the U.S.’s chief model for women’s gender equality suffers from male-pattern baldness. We will continue to have confusion on this issue until the world’s leading biologists come to a 97% consensus on what a woman is to elucidate the legal reasoning of our Supreme Court Justices. Of course, that depends on what is is. It is deep issues such as this that engenders lavish funding for law schools and the legal profession in general. [Pun intended.]

More climate change BS but many of us should be use to it by now.

There is clearly no relation towards rape victims per 100,000 population and how relatively warm or cold a country is.

One example with a country next to the lowest rapes per 100,000 (0.11).

“Egypt’s climate is dry, hot, and dominated by desert. It has a mild winter season with rain falling along coastal areas, and a hot and dry summer season (May to September). Daytime temperatures vary by season and change with the prevailing winds.”

Highest (92.93) Botswana

“Temperatures for the country are generally warm to hot, with mean monthly maximum temperatures ranging from 29.5ºC to 35ºC summer, and 19.8ºC to 28.9ºC in winter. Mean monthly minimum temperatures range from 14.6ºC to 20.8ºC in summer, and 2.9ºC to 11.6ºC in winter.”

The (very tiny) bit of truth in this is that, when young girls have to go further to fetch water, they are more likely to be raped. They are further from a possible defender.

The solution to this, of course, is to use the wonders of modern civilization to bring the water closer to the homes of these girls, if not right into them. The thing is, those wonders are ALL made possible only with the wide availability of hydrocarbons (to make and power pumps, to make and lay PVC piping, etc.).

wo,
By reverse causality logic, such women will benefit from a wetter climate that requires them to walk shorter distances for water supplies.

There is government money to be made, in Australia, if you can include words such as “because of climate change”, whether it’s a journo report, wild life documentary etc.

Okay but can she define the word ‘woman’.

And they have got you:

To enter this debate is to accept the whole global warming scam and join an argument about where to place the deckchairs.

Clearly another example of someone not at the front of the queue when they were handing out intelligence.
I fear for the future of the Australian residents if that level of ignorance is on public display from an official too stupid to realise being ridiculous and thus ridiculed, on social media is not a positive situation for them.

So as to be fair and not appear to single out our Antipodean cousins, in the moronic politician stakes. I attach a link to one of the UK’s best known Labour Party ex shadow ministers giving her opinion on the BBC broadcast live.
As we must always do these days we give a warning to would be viewers and listeners and readers some may be offended as this link involves Diane Abbott.

Oh no, not bloody Diane Abbott again – I’m torn between crediting her with being incompetent and unable to utter a comprehensible argument or give her the benfit of the doubt and say that her diabetes has made her unfit to be an MP and unable to hold a rational conversation. Either way she really is a damned liability and a complete waste of space. She and comrade Corbyn should have been kicked out of Parliament years ago.

One interesting thing about this statement (apart from the obvious nuttiness on global warming and its effects) is how the term ‘gender’ is being used.

Various enthusiasts have at different times claimed there were varying numbers of genders in humans. An Irish senator for instance claimed the number was nine. Activists in the UK have claimed there are over 100. I’ve also read someone who said there were three. Facebook at one time listed all the genders it recognized, and from memory there were about 80. Short of 100 anyway, but well north of two or three.

However, in this piece, and in some of the comments on it, ‘gender’ seems to be used as a synonym for ‘sex’. Consider this extract:

Promoting gender equality, the rights of women and girls, is a priority for Australia. As Australia’s Ambassador for Women and Girls, Ms Clarke will work to ensure that gender equality, and empowerment of women and girls, is a central focus of Australia’s diplomatic, development, and regional security efforts

It seems from this that women and girls are a gender, presumably the female gender. It is true that in most of the material about genders which lists them, male and female are absent. But when it comes to specific policy issues, gender is now increasingly being used as a synonym for what we used to describe as sex.

The question to ask Ms Clarke is: is she appointed to promote the equality of the sexes or of the genders, and what is the difference between them?

My impression is that as it comes down to policy, the very expansive concept of gender, the idea of there being tens or hundreds of them, has become unworkable.

One reason for this is that if people are being offered gender confirmation procedures, for this to make any kind of sense there have to be male and female genders. It is obviously impossible for current medical procedures to be argued to be confirming a ‘free spirit’ gender, for instance.

So people have started to use a weak form of the concept, where the difference is that there are two genders just as there were two sexes, but the female gender, unlike the female sex, includes everyone who claims to be of it. It has no biological reference. Similarly for the male gender of course.

The piece, and similar announcements, show there is a radical conceptual confusion at the heart of current gender ideology.

as an aussie woman all i can say is. I am SO embarrassed and ashamed of crap like this getting any airtime or credit in any way!
making ridiculous claims like this DEMEANS the entire cause shes supposed to be supporting, makes it an object of ridicule
(and the ridicule for the climate claim made IS deserved)

As a mere breeding person, Clarke should be made to seek the opinion and authorisation of Lia Thomas et al before presuming to speak for women. Bit rude if you ask me.

“Professional climate alarmist” Tim Flannery is Missing in Action. Not a peep out of him about the present flooding in Sydney. The government also appears to be silent about blaming the floods on climate change. Could it be that Australia has always been a land of floods and droughts and always will be? Perhaps Christine Clarke needs to watch the news reports and revise her climate views?

A movie everyone should see at least once is the 1950 classic Akira Kurosawa film Rashomon (Outrage). It details in flashbacks the murder/rape of a Samurai and his wife when they are set upon by a bandit on the road.

You hear four versions of the events at the bandit’s trial: the bandit’s, the wife’s, the husband’s (through a Shinto psychic), and the woodcutter’s who came upon the body. All the stories encompass the same events, but the interpretations are very different. Kurosawa never tells you what the actual truth is, but leaves you with the conclusion that everyone is lying in some respect to make themselves look better.

The movie should be required viewing for members of a jury pool before opening a trial.

The way to understand statements by public figures is simply: they’re not telling you the truth; they’re not telling you what benefits you to know; they’re telling you what benefits them to have you believe. Discount accordingly.

I know what religions are like. The devil is responsible for all evil. The devil is everywhere. Fighting the devil justifies any behavior. Communism, environmentalism, every-ism, they just change the name of the devil.

Wow, she is the “smart” one, she knows the definition of the women. After all, there are some elected politicians and unelected bureaucrats that cannot define a woman.

What is Ms Clark doing to protect the rights of women to have male free spaces? There is currently a court case in Australia between a women (XX) and a trans woman who wants to have access to the woman-only app to allow the trans woman to seek out female only spaces. Perhaps Ms Clark could focus on something where there is evidence of harm and forget about her silly climate change nonsense.
