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.

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?
