Women don't emit enough gas

That's greenhouse gas I'm talking about. Apparently, men are responsible for global warming. Ulrike Rohr, director of Genanet-Focal point gender, Environment, Sustainability is demanding "climate gender justice".

And, how does Ulrike know that men contribute more to global warming? "To give you an example from Germany, it is mostly men who are going by car. Women are going by public transport mostly". Well, there's no justice in that is there? She's got all the scientific evidence one could hope for to prove her case. I guess women will just have to drive more often.

I have to admit that I thought Ms. Rohr's argument was going to be about that other source of greenhouse gases and that she was going to bring up that old falsehood about men and their powers of production in this sphere.
