Divorce has negative impact on the environment

"A UN report has concluded, furthermore, that women are better at dealing with the effects of climate change, such as droughts and flooding."
Divorce is having a negative impact on climate change. The break-up of the family unit is leading to a situation in which the emission of harmful gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect is increased: The need for two houses and two cars, for example, means the consumption of household energies is at least doubled. This is the conclusion of a report by the UN entitled "State of the World Population", which explains how the growth of the global population is complicating society's ability to cope with the consequences of climate change. The study also points out that women, as well as contributing less to global warming, are better than men at dealing with its effects. This is especially noticeable in developing countries where women tend to carry out more agricultural tasks, and therefore take on the responsibility of fetching water and firewood for cooking - at the same time caring for their families - activities that are greatly affected by drought, floods and other natural disasters.
