Swedish Study: Men to Blame for Global Warming
We can breathe a sigh of relief now that we know whoâ€™s winning the battle of the sexes in combating global warming.
The November 10 issue of New Scientist magazine reported a study by Gerd Johnsson-Latham of the Swedish Ministry of Sustainable Development that concludes â€śSwedish men are being blamed for having a disproportionately large impact on global warming.â€ť
â€śThe fact that women travel less than men, measured in person-kilometres per car, plane, boat and motorcycle â€“ means that women cause considerably fewer carbon dioxide emissions than men, and thus considerably less climate change,â€ť Johnsson-Latham said in the report.
â€śWomen do not escape censure, however,â€ť the magazine report said. â€śThe report notes that in Sweden, women spend four times as much as men on consumer goods and - in a further dig at men, albeit unintended â€“ 20 times as much on hygiene products.â€ť
