Skip to comments.Rise in violence 'linked to climate change'
Posted on 08/03/2013 8:19:06 AM PDT by rktman
Shifts in climate are strongly linked to increases in violence around the world, a study suggests.
US scientists found that even small changes in temperature or rainfall correlated with a rise in assaults, rapes and murders, as well as group conflicts and war.
The team says with the current projected levels of climate change, the world is likely to become a more violent place.

US scientists should be ashamed to call themselves scientists
The cold in Sweden doesn’t seem to stop the recent mulsim immigrants from raping the locals...
I suspect that pretty soon this will be a defense in certain trials, but only if you're one of Holder's people.
Gee, ya mean there is an uptick in violent behavior in the summer time?
Imagine that. Wonder how much they spent on this study to come up with that pretty obvious conclusion.
See? It wasn’t Trayvon’s fault! It was Booosh’s!!!
“Rise in violence linked to election of America’s first halfrican president and his marxist henchmen.”
Now that’s a headline I would believe.
If Obama wasn’t so busy destroying wealth and trade patterns for western civilization, there would be greater prosperity for all. Wars are largely created out of poverty.
Instead of “sharing the wealth” by destroying it and giving it away, he should be “sharing the wealth” by promoting more global trade with the power house, the US of A.
But he cant do that. Their goal is the destruction of America. Take out America ???? Guess what?
By the time he is done, he will have walked us to the third world war. IT will be VERY difficult to walk it back out.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.
3. The earth is a rock.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
THERE IS NO SCIENCE IN CONSENSUS AND THERE IS NO SCIENCE IN GLOBULL WARMING THEREFORE THIS PROCLAMATION IS NOTHING BUT ANOTHER LIE BASED UPON A HOUSE OF LIES. THE RISE IN VIOLENT CRIME IS DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO MANKIND TURNING HIS BACK ON GOD... END OF STORY.
6. CO2 is only .039% of the atmosphere.
“They estimate that a 2C (3.6F) rise in global temperature could see personal crimes increase by about 15%, and group conflicts rise by more than 50% in some regions.”
DId Louis Farrakhan participate in this study. and if so when will we be treated to his spoken conclusions?
this is Million Man Math at its most ludicrous!!
What utter bull. Are they seriously suggesting the world is more violent now than 1000, or 2000 years ago?
And the full Moon makes lunatics howl....
So, there are parts of Texas in a drought and the temps get way up there in August. Gonna’ be rough this month.
I would think that any increase in violence would be directly related to the increasing global population.
However, I have to see the increase in violence first.
Evil will never cease looking for new ways of expanding. With the Left MSM Propaganda Machine, this means floating all thought up ideas about “Climate Change” no matter how crazy, to advance their political goals through as many weak minded individuals as possible and they really don’t care what that looks like to the rest of us.
This is the BBC. Global warming cultists are everywhere. It isn’t a US phenomenon. There are probably more American scientists criticizing the climate change fixation than anyone else.
Russia seems to be a hotbed of deniers as well.
That explains why tropical destinations like Chicago, Newark and Detroit have so much street violence.
The Greeks (Trojans) used to say that summer was the season for war. So the annual global warming (summer) caused war. Winter was the season for building ships for global warming (Summer).
2000 years ago they were raising armies to march a thousand miles to fight with whoever might happen to be there and spending decades doing it.
“Are they seriously suggesting the world is more violent now than 1000, or 2000 years ago?”
For these brain-dead imbeciles, that’s a 10-4.
....In a manner reminiscent of Jin-Jis Kahn......
Well there HAS been a ‘climate change’ in the UK. It has become a climate of tolerance for hooliganism, which only begets MORE violence. The riots from a couple of years ago demonstrated that clearly. The gangs of out of control kids and young adults were not stopped by the police; the only ones who really stood up to them in a clear way were the shop owners who were not going to let them ruin their livelihoods.
Hmmm...maybe they're right. I guess it's human caused after all.
Good! That means we can fix what's causing it.
Like the expression says: "Change your mind; change your world."
Well, at least we now have the official cause of the Benghazi violence. /s
The contemporary equivalent of Phlogiston or the Piltdown Man.
What a load of bull ####! Still they try to force that phony carbon tax credit (cash wind fall)and excuse for control with this tripe. Unbelievable. Mindless subservient dimwits. What’s next? In grown toe nails contribute to climate change.
Facts are irrelevant. You know that. Crime data? We don’t need no steenkin’ crime data. LOL!
No, but, all those neanderthals out there shootin’ them guns has got to be a contributer. Ergo-get rid of guns. Or some such “rationale” from the radical left wing demokkkrat extremists. Didiots.
“6. CO2 is only .039% of the atmosphere.”
Furthermore, the Earth’s second atmosphere was upwards of 100 times more massive and was composed of 98 percent carbon dioxide. So, where did 99 percent of the atmosphere and oll of that carbon dioxide disappear to? Answer: a small percentage was lost to outer space, while the vast majority of the carbon and a substantial portion of the oxygen were deposited in the Earth’s rocks or Lithosphere by lifeforms which used the carbon dioxide as food. Some of the oxygen was released into the atmosphere as the free oxygen we breathe today. Carbon dioxide was by far the predominant gas in the atmosphere in the past, and now life has reduced and maintained it as no more than a minute trace gas. Oxygen was formerly a minute trace gas in the Earth’s atmosphere, and life has liberated it to become a substantial fraction of Earth’s atmosphere in the present times. Earth’s lifeforms have been so efficient at removing carbon dioxide from the Earth’s atmosphere, they have kept much of the Plant Kingdom starved for sufficient levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Grasses for example developed special biochemical pathways to overcome the problems of carbon dioxide starvation.
It’s been a cooler than normal summer and the Tigers are in 1st place. What’s there to fight about?
Yes, the Russians are giving the AGW crowd the cold shoulder.
Very well put. Brevity definitely is the soul of wit.
They don’t have much respect for the third sex crowd, either. How ironic that Russia seems to headed for what the USA once was; while we are on a toboggan slide to what we USED TO rail against!
So, those scientists took studies from over hundreds of years to determine when crimes occur. Did they consider the invention of the A/C in recent times?
I heard that the rise in climate change is linked to people eating less healthier.
It has also been linked to older pets walking slower vs. when they were young.
The sun is actually a nuclear giant fireball.
the Earth would be -400 degrees below zero if the sun were not here. that’s the temp of interstellar space. the sun in the ONLY source of heat in the solar system
I was making fun of the study. If drought and high temps cause violence to rise, does the study say there’s more violence in August than January? How ‘bout on the equator?
More like a rise in mental illness linked to liberalism.
It has been said before me by better men that "correlation is not causation".
things that coincide.....are not usually meaningful “coincidences”
Given the huge industry of alarmist dependent pseudo “science” any numbers they THROW UP..er sorry out is expected to be taken as Deeply Meaningful because they CLAIM to be “scientists”
