Women and Climate

© 2010

Grist reports that the 19-member panel tasked with saving the Earth from our bad choices by looking for potential revenue sources to help mitigate climate change impacts in poor countries will include exactly zero women.

Do I really think that having an equal number of women on the board will have a positive impact on its success? I do.

In addition to that belief, the authors note that women bear a disproportionate burden of climate change impacts.

Take a couple of minutes and read the article. It's short, but provides some striking claims. Then, meet back here and let's talk about it!

With you on this one, too, Josh. For a decent conversation about it, we do need some women involved, yes?
