Rising leftist leader urges ‘gender equality’ and ‘reproductive rights’ to combat climate change

It seems one of the best ways to combat the pesky “climate crisis” the left is up in arms about is to simply address gender equality.

So says an apparent expert on the topic,  18 year-old hip-hop artist, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez.

Martinez, whose first name is pronounced ‘Shoe-Tez-Caht,’ spoke about the climate change issue Monday in a panel during the “Climate Change Town Hall” organized by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

The environmental activist and Earth Guardians Youth director told the audience at the televised town hall that the key to halting climate change is advocating for “reproductive rights.”

“This is the most important issue of our time because it connects every other issue,” Martinez said.

“You know, if you care about gender equality, you know, some of the most recent studies, including [author] Paul Hawken in the ‘Drawdown,’ was talking about how one of the best ways to address our climate crisis is to educate women and advocate for their reproductive rights,” he added.

Climate change is an “umbrella crisis” Martinez argued.

“That’s a direct line of intersection between these two movements, because climate change is that thing, is that umbrella crisis, that is more than we have ever successfully communicated it to be,” he said.

Martinez, who is described as “an indigenous climate activist, hip-hop artist, and powerful voice on the front lines of a global youth-led environmental movement,” was lauded by the left for his criticism of the fossil fuel industry and the contributions to politicians that prevent legislative action.

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was also on hand at the event, calling for a more aggressive approach to combat global warming.

Many found the “word salad” from Martinez to be more of the same leftist narrative that has come to be expected from today’s liberal youth.

Many others, found it as a somewhat cloaked call for abortion rights which is often defended by the left under the guise of ‘reproductive rights.’
