New Report Links Conflict To Climate

The warmer the weather, the hotter the conflict, according to a new report. Researchers at Princeton University and the University of California, Berkeley compiled 60 studies in economics, history, political science, criminology and psychology, leading to one conclusion: changes in temperature and rainfall patterns impact human conflict. “Our results shed new light on how the future climate will shape human societies,” said Marshall Burke, co-author of the report, in an interview. Burke, researcher and doctoral candidate at the University of California, Berkeley, discusses his findings with us. (Photo: AP Images).
