This just in: Global Warming will turn women into prostitutes

Because there is nothing the Evil Demon of Climate Change cannot do! So speaketh Representative Barbara Lee, Democrat of (I’m sorry to say) California (1) :

Several House Democrats are calling on Congress to recognize that climate change is hurting women more than men, and could even drive poor women to “transactional sex” for survival.

The resolution, from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and a dozen other Democrats, says the results of climate change include drought and reduced agricultural output. It says these changes can be particularly harmful for women.

“[F]ood 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 reproductive health,” it says.

Climate change could also add “workload and stresses” on female farmers, which the resolution says produce 60 to 80 percent of the food in developing countries.

The Demon Climate Change will also bring an increased risk of war and refugee migration, according to Lee’s resolution. Really, in the Church of Anthropogenic Global Warming, this thing is more powerful than the Four Horsemen combined. No wonder they’re screaming “DOOM!!” at the top of their lungs.

Well, that and the fact that they lust after the tax money and power all the new anti-global warming regulations and legislation will give them. A “crisis” like this is just made for a statism-on-steroids solution.

But I’m just a cynic.

And Barbara Lee is an idiot.

But take a look at what she’s pushing: fear, not facts. Coulds, maybes, mights, but no science. This is what you do when the science is increasingly not on your side –for example, the troublesome fact that there has been no statistically significant warming since the mid-90s– you have to resort to scare tactics and various forms of baiting and then plead a crisis. This is all the Left has (in this case, Watermelons, the environmental Left), whether it’s climate change, the right to bear arms, or economics.

“Facts are stubborn things,” said John Adams, which is why the Left tries desperately to ignore them.

    Soooo the reverse of that should be true…. Global Cooling will turn them into saints. LOL Which is more likely true?? – Lorica

  2. Tex says:

    Just when you thought Democrats couldn’t possibly get any dumber.

  3. Sefton says:

    Interesting that she includes “drought and reduced agricultural output” – coming from a state that started a drought in the San Joaquin Valley over a smelt, ruining farm communities.

  4. Bill says:

    Isn’t prostitution “the world’s oldest profession”? Must have been really hot 5,000 years ago with all those SUV’s and air conditioners. Also, democrats should know a thing or two about whores, they are the biggest whores in Washington.

  5. Drew the Infidel says:

    And they wonder why the Congress’ approval rating is just above that of bubonic plague?

  6. Carlos says:

    Why is it that prostitution, when a chosen profession, is a “victimless” crime according to libs, but when they can use the profession as a scare tactics there are severe consequences?

    @Tex: Democraps aren’t any dumber, she’s always been this dumb.

    And California judges aren’t helping, either, Sefton. They’re also the ones that have, for all intents and purposes, shut down the Klamath River from use by CA farmers because a few salmon die each year.

    Yep. California, the state chock full of nuts and suicidal folk. Like granola bars: take out all the flakes and nuts and there’s nothin’ left worth havin’.

  7. Claymores says:

    That college town you referred to is also known as “Jerkeley”. Students are processed and not educated.

  8. Drew the Infidel says:

    I have also heard the name “Berserkeley” used.

  9. Carlos says:

    Or ClownTown. The collective IQ is tremendous, but, beyond figuring out how to slip on their Birks or put their sneakers with velcro on, they have a tough time figuring out what is reality and what time in the universe it is.

  10. Cindy says:

    How did early marriage get stuffed in there with prostitution?!

  11. Brontefan says:

    I read something yesterday about how Russian scientists are saying we are heading into a global cooling.. …. It has been my personal belief that if Congress needs to vote on–global warming–it cannot be real. Congress wastes more time on superficial issues while ignoring the REAL ones.

  12. Carlos says:

    Ya know, I just can’t figure out why Lee would make it sound so bad, being a prostitute. That’s what she is, but they call her and all her colleagues “politicians” to dress it up for polite society…just window dressing, I guess. She really needs to stop dissing on herself and pay attention to reality.
