    It's more of a knock-on effect of feminism.

    The rising divorce rate and the amount of broken homes means that more housing is required. More housing = greater carbon emissions. Not difficult to understand to be honest.

    Is it really so hard to believe? Feminism has been one of the most influential ideologies of the past thirty years. Of course there are going to be wider ramifications outside of what they were trying to achieve.

    Unless of course you think that feminism is not responsible for rising divorce rates?
    There are many other factors that may be responsible for divorce rates feminism may be one but it's not the main and only one. For example globalisation, the media secularisation all play a part.

    Not only has the stigma associated with divorce been lessened, if not entirely eliminated by feminism, but laws have changed to facilitate divorce. By the 1970s and 180s, most Western countries gave couples the ability to file for divorce without claiming that the other spouse had in some way "broken" the marriage contract by committing adultery, a felony, or being abusive.

    As divorce became easier. it became more common. Since then. thenumber of divorces has skyrocketed - more than doubling - over fifteen years.

    The "main aim" of feminism is gender equality?

    Feminism isn't the only factor causing the increase in divorces, and divorce is not the only factor causing an increased need for housing. So the effect of feminism on increased housing is probably pretty small. My hunch is that feminism's effect on global warming is dwarfed by the impacts of things like deforestation and the animal industry.

    What's more you're ignoring the benefits that feminism has when it comes to fighting global warming. In the developing world, there are millions of women who can't do much of anything to combat global warming because they have little to no say about how their lives are lived. Feminism is addressing that.

    So are you suggesting that it is always the woman who chooses to divorce? A little hard on your sex aren't you? I'm sure there are some males out there who have the initiative to make a life changing decision for the better, rather than wallow in misery for their remaining lives.

    Q.E.D. Marriage is against the fundamental tenets of feminism, and the rise in feminism is actively increasing the amount of people living on their own.
