While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    Climate Change Hits Women Harder

    Climate change 'impacts women more than men'

    Mary Halton, 8 March 2018 (BBC News)

    “Women are more likely than men to be affected by climate change…Roles as primary caregivers and providers of food and fuel make them more vulnerable when flooding and drought occur…With dry seasons now becoming longer, [rural] women are working harder to [collect water, feed,] and care for their families… Globally, women are more likely to experience poverty, and to have less socioeconomic power than men. This makes it difficult to recover from disasters which affect infrastructure, jobs and housing…80% of people displaced by climate change are women…[and, in] the immediate aftermath of extreme events, emergency shelters can be inadequately equipped to support women…Increased incidences of violence against women, including sexual assault and rape, have also been documented…Much as climate change is accelerated by human behaviours, the impact of weather and climate events is influenced by societal structures…In recognition of this vast disparity, governments and organisations working on climate change are gradually moving to include women's voices in policy and planning…” click here for more
