Claim: ‘Want to solve climate change problems? Put women in charge’ – ‘Imagine a world where women are in charge. And then you’ll imagine a world without fossil fuels’
Meet scientist, feminist, activist Sarah Myhre » Yale Climate Connections
Sarah Myhre: Scientist/feminist/activist, all in one
By Karin Kirk
“Want to solve climate change problems? Put women in charge, says the academic researcher, feminist, nonprofit activist, and force of nature on the issues that drive her.
“Sarah Myhre, a veritable force of nature in addressing climate and other issues she is passionate about.”
At the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in New Orleans last December, Sarah Myhre, PhD, joined with other scientists on a panel presenting and fielding questions on the science, economics, and politics of climate solutions.
Myhre (pronounced my-ree) delivered a message that may have been startling to some in the audience – that climate change cannot fully be addressed without also grappling with the misogyny and social injustice that have perpetuated the problem for decades. “
Climate Depot note:
“We don’t have to ‘Imagine’, the developing world in Africa, South America and Asia, has over one billion people who essentially live in a ‘world without fossil fuels’ and they live in a world of energy poverty with high infant mortality, shorter life expectancy and no running water and many live in huts made of dung.”
