Global Warming Produces Violence, “Science” Reports.

Written by Gary North on August 2, 2013

Yes, my friends, climate change does this. We know this now.

Heat does it. Of course, there has been no increase in world temperatures since 1998, but global warming could create violence. Maybe. Possibly.

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.”

The researchers looked at 60 studies from around the world, with data spanning hundreds of years.

They report a “substantial” correlation between climate and conflict.

Their examples include an increase in domestic violence in India during recent droughts, and a spike in assaults, rapes and murders during heatwaves in the US.

The report also suggests rising temperatures correlated with larger conflicts, including ethnic clashes in Europe and civil wars in Africa.

So, once again, it all boils down to climate change. It’s all scientific. We must stop the climate from changing.

    It also attracts the Predators. Send in Schwarzenegger!

  2. SammysDad says:

    Didn't I just see a report that violent crime has decreased overall in the U.S.???? I guess we are not as hot as India, duh!

  3. hanginjudge says:

    Not sure that it causes violence but it for damn sure produces stupidity!

  4. No, intolerant liberals confronted with the truth as they push the global warming hoax produce violence as they attempt to sensor opposing views (the truth ) as opposed to having a civilized conversation based on facts.

  5. If the Blind,lead the —–blind ,look—-what happened in Detroit !!!!! all the tax payers moved out ?? or was it the blind leading the blind ,back into The motor City !!!!!!! mo tea sir, moan back ,Obamas payins for this ride??or is it you???

  6. The Global Warming crap is all about another big wealth redistribution plan and handicapping the US. The fact is the violence is from the leftist as usual when they do not get what they want or someone questions them with facts. They look for any excuse to act like the animals they are and perform their Satanic acts. If it was not this, they would find another reason.

  7. Global warming responsible for: pattern baldness, the recession, bad breath, inability to get a date on Friday night, dust bunnies…and anything else these cultists can dream up.

    A wise man predicted years ago that, with the Soviet Union’s collapse, the environmentalist movement would absorb all the totalitarian fanatics who needed a new “religion” in their never-ending march to enslave humanity. He was right!

    Wrong song. The correct song for this article is It's Too Darn Hot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WS_YAKZH3lw If it's too hot for snookum it's too hot for violence too. That's my scientific opinion. Who wants to fight when it's hot out. There's another song, I like fightin it's excitin but who wants to do that in the heat?

  9. Now we are going to see the climate change defense in criminal trials as an alternative to the insanity defense.

  10. It's quite evident in the South. LOL.

  11. The only violence from global warming is due to the anger of paying more money due to the increase of EPA regulation due to acceptance of political corruption, stupidity over going too green to stop homeowners from improving property and government control just ’cause they feel like it.

  12. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Stop defending the GREEDY polluters!

    Just more of the insanity produced by the global warming fanatics. What's amazing is that these nitwits, feeding at the trough of federal research dollars, are so sure that a beneficial trace gas has more to do with climate than the sun, the earth's elliptical orbit, its axial tilt, its precession wobble, the effect of cosmic rays on cloud cover, and the Atlantic and Pacific Decadal Oscillations. In other words, of the one-third of a degree Celsius rise in globally-averaged temoeratures that ocurred from 1978-1997, those mega natural factors are far outweighed by CO2.

    I have a better theory: belief in a global warming crisis is directly related to the amount of federal dollars flowing to scientists willing to push the panic button.

    In reality, anthropogenic CO2 has been identified as the "culprit" bcause by doing so they can justify controlling the human population. If it's the sun and other natural casuse, there's no justification for poltical intervention, and power-hungry and corrupt politicians are out of a job.

  14. You know……it wasn't all that long ago that science (and anyone that disagreed was a heretic because 'all the science was in') had proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the world was flat.

  15. I suggest that the only violence created by global warming is the true, kool aid drinking, believers beating up on the skeptics. See my blog at http://cranky-conservative.blogspot.com

  16. You don't need a scientist to let you know that when schools out in the Summer these thugs will commit more crimes cause they have more time to themselves and don't have to worry about waking up so their out to the wee hours of the morning committing their crimes

  17. Smile, that's the close-minded bigot we all know and love.

  18. demccall says:

    Does this 'scientific report' seem just a little self serving to anyone else? But then I am sure no one in the climate change business would do anything to protect their grants from the governments who use the information they produce to exercise more power and control over the people.

  19. stangerinmyownland says:

    And the Sun and the Planets were in orbit around the Earth. Absolutely the truth as believed by the ruling class. Galileo ended up in exile (and dying in exile) for being right.

  20. william spires says:

    The real violence increase due to global scamming is from Obama's disciples and his community organizers who roam the country destroying business due to economy destroying regulations because they have not accepted the seasons of winter, spring, summer and fall!

  21. There could be a direct correlation between being unemployed and there could be a correlation between going hungry and there could have something to do with government taking over and violating the constitution. DOG EAT DOG that is what happens when the chips are down. When Martial law is declared, don't count on the police or soldiers to come to your aid. They will be serving a different master.

    From The Article: "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."
    Now THERE is a statement that could get right past you if you fail to THINK! First of all…the earth is NOT warming…so whatever heat they are 'accusing' comes from other sources. Secondly…Correlation is NOT Causation. There is a classic logical fallacy here, known as Post hoc, ergo propter hoc, meaning "After the fact, therefore because of the fact. Example. 90% of criminals incarcerated throughout the United States have eaten Mashed Potatoes! Therefore…Mashed Potatoes cause CRIME!

  23. Virgil_Hilts says:

    Would that be stupidity or violence which you say the south has in abundance?

  24. Sure, blame the weather.

  25. The teaparty blames the weather 😀

  26. Crime is responsible for most incarcerations, there is empirical evidence pointing to that conclusion.

  27. Hello Mr North: I read your newsletter and find it really interesting. But if you've accepted the nostrum that global surface temperatures have not increased substantially since 1998, you are letting yourself be fooled. Hope you'll take a look at the entire temperature record, not just the slim slice of the past 10-20 years.. Best regards, E. Gertz, journalist

  28. Temperature? Global warming? Doesn’t phase of the moon count anymore?

  29. The Quadfather says:

    warm weather increases crime for the same reason it increases all outdoor activity, such as pleasure boating. What criminal wants to be lurking about in freezing weather?

  30. Blame Bush , he did it

  31. Re: Seymour Kleerly,
    — Stop defending the GREEDY polluters! —

    "It was always ideological, never about the 'environment', you naive fools! Ha ha ha!" Seymour rants while he's being led to the nice padded room…

  32. SapientHetero says:

    And here I thought that increases in violence were caused exclusively by liberal politics that teaches people that their situation in life is caused by others, rather than by the choices they themselves make. Somebody should do a study, preferably not funded with our taxes.

  33. SapientHetero says:

    Ummm… at the risk of confusing you with facts, I can't help pointing out that it would be inappropriate when talking about surface temperatures since 1998 to consider anything BUT the past 15 years. D'oh!

    I also can't resist observing that it would be much easier for those of us who are interested to consider the entire temperature record if the available data hadn't been deleted by the CRU. Or pointing out the well-documented US surface temperature station siting issues (see surfacestations.org for details). Or questioning the utility of temperature proxies that aren't even consistent with one another, which casts serious doubt on their consistency with reality.

    But, as I said, please don't feel like you must let facts interfere with your religious belief in warmism.

  34. SapientHetero says:

    I always chuckle when some leftist thug who thinks others should pay for their lifestyle choices accuses ANYONE ELSE of being "greedy". Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

  35. SapientHetero says:

    Some claim that global warming is responsible for liberal idiocy, but I've always suspected they've got it backwards.

  36. SapientHetero says:

    If he's closed-minded, I'd prefer that to those with minds so "open" that their common sense falls out.

  37. SapientHetero says:

    And liberals blame any and everyone except themselves.

  38. SapientHetero says:

    Detroit is "Atlas Shrugged" writ small. A sneak preview of a nation run by blind ideologues to whom the consequences of their insane policies are unimportant compared to ideological purity.

  39. SapientHetero says:

    Perhaps the urban heat island effect s responsible for the increase in violent crime in Democrat-controlled major US cities. Or maybe it's just the Democrats' incompetence.

  40. Global warming also predicted that there would be people coming out and saying that global warming would cause violence and wars. Amazing, huh?

    A victim of their own demise is a premise of liars – Anonymouse

  41. I think you just described what happened in the Garden of Eden
    in one swoop! BRAVO!!!

    There mental illness was caused by God, chose to eat the forbidden fruit to correct it, tragic fall of mankind occurs, all done at God’s expense.

  42. Oh no, actually a warmer climate ought to increase growing seasons meaning more food for everyone. On the other hand, sudden cooling in the 1800's led to famines and wars as starving people are desperate people.

  43. Fun fact: few to no one plays the insanity card because they're more likely end up with a longer sentence. The notion you'll get off scot-free because of the insanity defense is Hollywood fiction.

  44. That is, STUDYING "climate change" can reduce your I.Q. by up to 20 points. Really, it's scientifically proven!

  45. I love the way you hit that nail on the head.

  46. I asked one person, "If a scientist advised you to jump off of a bridge would you do it?" They said, "No, of course not!" I then said, "So why is their opinion as equally germane when they talk of 'Climate change'? They're not showing you the data are they?"

    Put it another way – Newton had an equation, Einstein had an equation, Maxwell, Shroedinger, and even Dirac had equations.

    Where are the equations "governing Climate Change"? Where are the Nobel Prizes for Chemistry and Physics for original science done for Climate Change?

    We have the biggest threat to the Human Race since Bubonic Plague or Malaria and not one Nobel Prize, not even one equation.

    Science? More like "Shine".

  47. This is probably the stupidest thing I've ever read. Anyone who buys this crap is either delusional, stupid, corrupt, or a liar.

  48. Maybe Global warming would produce violence…if there was global warming…which there isn't.

    I believe also that if cows could fly, there would be manure falling all over us. The last I heard, cows still can't fly.

  49. Obama will probably get the Nobel Prize for that this year to go with his peace prize. He's the first person to get the Nobel Peace Prize while simultaneously conducting 3 wars, so getting the prize for science is not out of the question.

    Twenty bucks for a one-day view of what is likely government-funded research? Who pays this? Others using taxpayer funds or taxpayer funded reimbursement funds? Sorry for the off-topic, but I look forward to the day when these ripoff academic journals are unlocked for all to see – with all data. Aaron Swartz knew this: a true man of the people harangued to his death by the closed loop of media-academic-government controllers and narrative providers.

    Back on topic, conflict is coming but it won't be due to weather. Eighty plus years of econonic mismanagement will get its due, and we will be paying the price. This is just diversionary propaganda so those responsible won't be held accountable.

  51. jamesbbkk says:

    There has been significant global warming over the last 10,000 years, which has caused significant increases in sea levels globally and glacial retreats to higher latitutes and altitudes, with heavy reductions in sea ice levels. Glaciers that once covered Massachusetts and parts of California among other locales are now gone, and all that remain are moraines and hanging valleys among other features that establish the former presence of these glaciers. There were also major disruptions in habitats of megafauna and mesofauna and severe changes in the prevalence of pre-existing flora over extremely large geographic areas.

  52. Judging from the amount of violence in Chicago, I'd estimate that it must have already been averaging 800 degrees Farenheit in the Windy City since 1967.
