“Global warming could make the world a more violent place, because higher temperatures increase human aggression and create volatile situations, a new study says.
The report combined government data about average yearly temperatures with statistics on the number of violent crimes committed between 1950 and 2008.
Based on those records, the authors estimate that if the average temperature in the U.S. increases by 8 degrees Fahrenheit (4.4 degrees Celsius), the country’s murder and assault rate will jump by about a hundred thousand cases a year.
But literal warming is just one way temperature changes can influence human behavior, study co-author Matthew DeLisi noted.
For example, people tend to go outside more when the weather is warmer, which leads to more social interactions.
“In the summer, when people are out, you’re going to have more opportunities for people to engage in crimes,” DeLisi said.
In addition, changes in weather patterns triggered by global warming could lead to increased poverty, food insecurity, and malnutrition—all of which are risk factors for the development of aggression in violence-prone individuals, DeLisi added.”
Therefore, the AGW alarmists say that (the theory of) global warming will cause violence will spread over the globe and kill humanity. What about the oceans that will flood the Earth?
Just too many ways to die.
