This is really a juicy take on how to scare people into believing in global warming (oops, I mean "climate change" -- which is the new global warming since the planet has actually been cooling for years).
Dem. Barbara Lee actually believes that climate change can push women into a life of ill repute. Just to explain how this can happen, if you are already a deprived woman, climate change makes finding food and water even more difficult. In order to pay for these, you will automatically go to the nearest street corner and offer your body for sex. Yep, makes sense to us.

On Wednesday, California Democrat Barbara Lee proposed a resolution in the House of Representatives that claims women will eventually be forced into prostitution in order to obtain life-sustaining food and water for their families.
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.”
Lee’s document goes on to urge Congress to agree on the “disparate impacts of climate change on women,” and goes on to demand that Congress use “gender-sensitive frameworks in developing policies to address climate change.”
Lee also charges that women, who are “often underrepresented in the development and formulation of policy regarding adaptation to climate change,” are doubtless in the best position to offer policy ideas.
