I used to be skeptical about claims of anthropogenic
global warming climate change global weirding bad stuff happening because of Republicans.
Yeah, I realize that’s not very scientific of me, but I admit it. I was foolish enough to believe that the people shrieking at me to shut up about it only wanted, y’know, silence. Submission. I let my pride trick me into thinking for myself and questioning their infallibility.
Now I feel ashamed, though. Now I know just how much is at stake. Now I realize that climate denial is yet another weapon in the evil Republican War on Women.
A senior House Democrat has once again issued an apocalyptic warning that climate change will hit women harder than men, and that it could drive millions of poor women to engage in “transactional sex” in order to provide food and water for their families.
