Original Starting post for this thread:
Has climate change driven you to "transactional sex", ladies? Well Rep. Lee wants the President to help you get ready, bitCHEZ!

A resolution has been brought to the House floor by the always insightful Sheila Jackson Lee.

It's 6 pages of the typical congressional drivel, but here's a sampling:

Recognizing the disparate impact of climate change on women and the efforts of women globally to address climate change.

Whereas women in the United States and around the world are the linchpin of families and communities and are often the first to feel the immediate and adverse effects of social, environmental, and economic stresses on their families and communities;

Whereas food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work,transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor re-productive health;

Whereas the direct and indirect effects of climate change have a disproportionate impact on marginalized women such as refugee and displaced persons, sexual minorities, religious or ethnic minorities, adolescent girls, and women and girls with disabilities and those who are HIV positive;

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That Congress—

(1) recognizes the disparate impacts of climate change on women and the efforts of women globally to address climate change;

(2) encourages the use of gender-sensitive frameworks in developing policies to address climate change, which account for the specific impacts of climate change on women;

(3) recognizes the need for balanced participation of men and women in climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts, including in governance positions; (blah blah blah)

(7) encourages the President to— (A) integrate a gender approach in all policies and programs in the United States that are globally related to climate change; and (B) ensure that those policies and programs support women globally to prepare for, build resilience for, and adapt to climate change.

Yes, yes I gave it careful thought and consideration as a vast many ideas and situations play across the back of my mind daily. While I am stumped on how to proceed with a book or other problems, I revert back to thinking about these major problems of Climate change and how to solve them... There by relaxing the thought processes which relate to the matter which I was previously stumped on.

Which tends to provide a clear vision on how to proceed with the process I was stumped on.

The same is also true for the larger picture ideals like climate change and how it affects us all.

Of course Women are hardest hit by climate change...no Blah Blah Blah about it. The multitude of reasons are found about a thumb scratch below the first layer of logic..... elusive huh?

sounds like this is playing to the women vote, and nothing more.

Personally the core of this is correct. Climate change will affect women more than men, but this report skims over why.

A woman is more likely to be the care giver to a child, there for they are more likely to be the one with holding food when climate change reduces usable farm land and causes the price of food to rise rapidly.

Why won't this affect men as much?

Well if you work as hard as some here on these forums claim to, you are working 90 hours a week. So you will not be home when the kids are crying for food, you also won't see the deteriorating health of your kids until your boss calls you into the office and tells you that your wife just called and your child is dead due to starvation.

As the economy crumbles, the medical services become out of reach for the public and as we all know, women are the largest consumers of medical needs in any country.

Bathing becomes a problem... This too affects women more than men.

The list goes on. What can be done about it? Nothing to stop climate change... But we can begin funding the adaptations to society. What do they look like?

For starters, constructing desalinization facilities to remove the salt from ocean water. (extremely expensive, but no choice as fresh water supplies continue to decline.)

Soilless farming becomes mainstream.

Massive public work projects to facilitate actions one and two.

Take the top ten percent (grade wise) of medical students and forgive their loans so that they may continue medical school and become doctors. Reducing the wage the jobs pays by a flood of doctors.

Raise the price of water after X amount of usage per month. (If every gallon before 400 gallons are 1USD then every gallon after 400 is 5USD.)

Encourage walking or other mass transit means to go to work. Rewards could be in the form of education benefits, financial aid (Welfare) or reduced water tax from 5 USD for < than 400 gallon usage) Monitoring this system would prove difficult at best, a GPS monitor would likely be required.
