Less men = less global warming

It’s science, so it’s must be true. New Scientist reports that a Swedish government scientist has found that men are, on the whole, far greater contributors to global warming than women.

The study, “gender equality as a prerequisite for sustainable development,” found that because women travel less than men, measured in person-kilometres per car, plane, boat and motorcycle, women cause considerably fewer carbon dioxide emissions than men.

Even further, the study notes, 60% of car emissions in Sweden are created by the 10% of drivers who use roads the most, and that men account for three-quarters of car driving in Sweden.
