EU Court Rules that Women are Disproportionately Harmed by Climate Change

Climate Change War

Over 2,000 women from Switzerland filed a case through the European Court of Human Rights after claiming that a lack of climate change regulations has disproportionately harmed their gender.  This is the third climate-related case brought to the high court. Six young women from Portugal sued for similar reasons, as did a former mayor in a coastal town in France. The previous two lawsuits were dismissed, but the European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the Swiss government has violated human rights by failing to implement harsher climate change laws.

KlimaSeniorinnen, as the group of Swiss women of 64 is called, declared in their lawsuit that their age and gender caused them to be more vulnerable to climate change. “I have had to enormously restrict my activities, to wait, with the blinds down and the air conditioning on (shame for an ecologist!) for the heatwave to pass, allowing me to go back to normal life,” one woman with an underlying cardiovascular illness said to the press during a 2022 heatwave. “I am fighting for my life and for my quality of life. Why do I fight? Because it’s only going to get worse and, if the government is as languid as it is now, it won’t sort itself out,” she said, describing Swiss action to date as “shameful.”

Climate Change Protest

Other women claimed they felt nausea, shortness of breath, and other very typical symptoms associated with the heat. The Swiss government called their claims “quite common” and noted that every living creature on the planet is impacted by the sun’s radiation. Switzerland was already in line with the 2015 Paris Accord Agreement, but these women have ensured that their government will crack down on climate change legislation as if a pen and paper could change naturally occurring weather patterns.

“Together with the authorities concerned, we will now analyse the extensive judgment and review what measures Switzerland will take in the future,” the Swiss Federal Office of Justice said in an official statement. Switzerland is already committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030.

The climate zealots plan to continue suing governments throughout Europe to ensure that our way of life comes to a complete halt. If they feel uncomfortable during a heatwave, wait until they see how the world operates without proper access to fossil fuels. The entire climate change agenda is based on fear and not fact. This case is a major loss for humanity at large as the few are holding our future hostage with braindead ideas that legislation can change the climate.
