Description

If we really want to address climate change, we need to make gender equity a reality, says writer and environmentalist Katharine Wilkinson. As part of Project Drawdown, Wilkinson has helped scour humanity's wisdom for solutions to draw down heat-trapping, climate-changing emissions: obvious things like renewable energy and sustainable diets and not so obvious ones, like the education and empowerment of women. In this informative, bold talk, she shares three key ways that equity for women and girls can help stop global warming. "Drawing down emissions depends on rising up," Wilkinson says.

this talk is replete with ignorance of science, platitudes, buzz words and non sequiturs. It provides a peek into the mindset of political correctness.

I think none of these environmental factors would relate to gender identity, please do not stimulate ordinary people’s emotions with such motivative expressions like crying or sobbing. Climate change and global warming are more significant issues than this unrelated speech.
