April 1 is next week, right? We aren’t getting punked right now, are we? It’s amazing what comes out of some people’s mouths these days. As if global warming wasn’t enough of a hot topic. I once read that Christie Hefner thought global warming was the cause for the rising gun murder rate in Chicago.
Now, we have Barbara Lee (D-CA) who said that global warming will cause women to turn to prostitution to obtain all the life essentials like food and water. On Wednesday, she proposed a new resolution in the House of Representatives to bring this issue to light.
Lee introduced House Concurrent Resolution 29, warning that women will be forced into “transactional sex” to get enough food and clean water — all because global warming will create “conflict and instability” in the world.
“Women will disproportionately face harmful impacts from climate change,” Lee’s resolution reads. It continues claiming, “Food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health.”
I’m struggling to find the correlation here. Here are a few things I can see global warming being blamed for in the near future:
1) Florida Georgia Line continuing to make music.
2) The fall of the SEC in football.
3) Kentucky’s perfect season.
I think Bill Engvall said it best to all these folks who don’t really think things through.
Barbara, here’s your sign..
