Arwa Mahdawi 声称男性不应对气候变化负责 (不要将气候危机归咎于男性——我们应该将矛头指向企业, 27 七月). 这让男人摆脱困境有点太轻率了. Not only are they the instigators of the ruinous Industrial Revolution, which led to the vast contamination of air, water and land, but men have also spent the last 5,000 years fighting, 杀人, colonising, enslaving, marauding, and yelling about football.
Who invented the capitalist system that Mahdawi agrees is so destructive? And who owns the corporations she so rightly condemns? Men.
所以, no need then to quibble with the cited Swedish study. Of course we shouldn’t blame individuals. We should blame all men.
