It's Electric! Man, You're Killing Me

Men’s spending on goods causes 16% more climate-heating emissions than women’s, despite the sum of money being very similar. Michael Mann, Betsy Rosenberg's and Good Morning America videos!

Wait, it's not electric yet it could be instead of a man-made machine built to breath in the good air and exhaust toxins. Not a good spending choice and one most women would find unacceptable. Men and women have different spending habits.

The biggest difference was men’s spending on petrol and diesel for their cars. The gender differences in emissions have been little studied, the researchers said, and should be recognized in action to beat the climate crisis. As a Cancer and stroke survivor, I say stop the insanity.

The analysis compared single men and women in Sweden and found that food and holidays caused more than half of all emissions for both men and women. The scientists found that swapping meat and dairy for plant-based foods and switching to train-based holidays, rather than using planes or cars, cut people’s emissions by 40%.

“The way they spend is very stereotypical – women spend more money on home decoration, health and clothes and men spend more money on fuel for cars, eating out, alcohol and tobacco.” We think it’s important to take the difference between men and women into account in policy making,” said Annika Carlsson Kanyama, at the research company Ecoloop in Sweden, who led the study.

Good morning America. Climate change is here...
