To End Violence Against Women, We Must Also Confront Climate Change
http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/fbeinecke/to_end_violence_...
Because we all know there was no violence against women in northern Europe during the Little Ice Age.

The good news is that we can help women combat the threat of climate change—and the violence and scarcity that comes with it. Studies show that simply by giving women the tools to plan the size and timing of their families, we can reduce carbon emissions by between 8 and 15 percent—the equivalent of stopping all deforestation today.
Really? The Pill is the equivalent of all the forests in Madagascar?
Wow. Who knew?
