When asked questions regarding the state and cause of climate change, Gloria Steinem responds with an immediacy which proves long contemplation on the subject:
“Are you kidding me? Listen, what causes climate deprivation is population."
Gloria Steinem, renowned feminist and political speaker over the past four decades, is blaming climate change on a lack of global abortion statistics. Despite the 56 million cases of infanticide committed in this country alone, there is obviously still, in her opinion, an overpopulation problem which threatens the planet---and humans are its worst enemies.
Without the "choice" of abortion, Steinem calls motherhood a forced, "disproportionate burden":
“That’s the fundamental cause of climate change. Even if the Vatican doesn’t tell us that. In addition to that, because women are the major agricultural workers in the world, and also the carriers of water and the feeders of families and so on, it’s a disproportionate burden. If we had not been systematically forcing women to have children they don’t want or can’t care for over the 500 years of patriarchy, we wouldn’t have the climate problems that we have.”
Elsewhere, Gloria has identified the female struggle and the struggle to keep abortion and the freedom entailed by it, a "battleground":
"Female bodies are still the battleground, whether that means restricting freedom, birth control and safe abortion in order to turn them into factories, or abandoning female infants because females are less valuable for everything other than reproduction."
Despite scientific evidence pointing to the mythological nature of the overpopulation theory, thousands continue to wield its argument as truth. Some might be interested in noting the significance points drawn by Johan Norberg on the subject, who depicts a much cleaner, much more prosperous reality:
"If you think that there has never been a better time to be alive — that humanity has never been safer, healthier, more prosperous or less unequal — then you’re in the minority. But that is what the evidence incontrovertibly shows. Poverty, malnutrition, illiteracy, child labour and infant mortality are falling faster than at any other time in human history. The risk of being caught up in a war, subjected to a dictatorship or of dying in a natural disaster is smaller than ever. The golden age is now."
Steinem also has decided opinions on raising sons, deeming masculinity, along with birthed babies, the enemies to a healthy environment:
“Tell them the masculine realm is killing them. It’s [in their] self-interest. Men would live quite a few years longer without the masculine realm.”
