Gender and Renewable Energies: How women help energy and energy helps women.

What does gender have to do with energy? Let’s start with the F word. Feminism. Some people do not consider themselves feminists because they misunderstand the meaning of the term or dislike negative connotations associated with the word when all it really refers to is equality. Does the word ecofeminism sound better to you somehow? That’s because the prefix “eco” here stands for ecology.

SHADES, UMBRELLAS…AND BOOTS:Protection from gender wars, overpopulation, and climate changes

Living in downtown San Francisco, I often wear sunglasses to protect my eyes from the wind tunnels. And it is quite sunny downtown too, typically 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the city. I have always looked strangely at people using umbrellas for protection against the sun. But that might be the norm in the world soon. Wouldn’t it be funny to name a bar “Shades and Umbrellas” where people could just lose and find sunglasses and umbrellas as they so often do already? It was supposed to snow in San Francisco this weekend.

Soluciones más que negociaciones en la COP18

Este año se cierra la agenda de reuniones internacionales de corte Ambiental con la COP18 en Doha, Qatar. Las soluciones inconclusas y la falta de acuerdos reales del año pasado en Durban, dejó mucho trabajo por hacer y grandes expectativas para lo que realizará la conferencia de las partes este 2012. Lo anterior aunado al vencimiento del tratado de Kyoto este 31 de diciembre, hace que los ojos y las esperanzas de mucha gente estén puestos sobre los tomadores de decisiones que acudirán a esta reunión.
