The Silliness Never Ends: Rise in Violence Linked to So-Called ‘Climate Change’

Well, at least they found an excuse for Chicago.

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.

The study is published in Science.

Marshall Burke, from the University of California, Berkeley, said: “This is a relationship we observe across time and across all major continents around the world. The relationship we find between these climate variables and conflict outcomes are often very large.”

Heh. They said Berkeley. So, does this mean guns aren’t the problem now?

    “increases in violence around the world”

    Wait… were we not just recently treated to any number of “serious studies” showing the worldwide decrease in violence, and how that was due to any number of “progressive” changes?

    So how does this relate to the recent announcement that global warming is going to turn our women into whores?
