Climate change could lead to more wars

A rise in global temperatures could have more than just an environmental effect on the world we live in.

The threat of climate change usually brings with it predictions of widespread flooding, droughts and food shortages, but perhaps one of the less understood consequences of rising temperatures is the threat of an increase in armed conflicts. Recent studies have uncovered correlations between climactic factors and violence throughout history, indicating that a changing climate can lead to a far greater risk of wars and violence.

Even now, cities experiencing excess spells of hot weather are seeing an increase in violent crime, possibly due to the physiological stress response to heat. If temperatures were to rise significantly on a long-term basis then many parts of the world could see far greater problems in these areas than we see today.

"Climate change isnít just affecting the natural world."

http://www.epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Minority.Blogs&ContentRecord_id=f80a6386-802a-23ad-40c8-3c63dc2d02cb The Forbes article I listed earlier has a link to a peer reviewed paper as well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_scientists_opposing_the_mainstream_scientific_assessment_of_global_warming I know that no matter what I post it will not be good enough for those that believe in man made global warming. No matter how much evidence there is against it. Of course these are normally the same people that swallow whatever the gov't tells them hook, line, and sinker. Mike

http://www.epw.senat...c8-3c63dc2d02cb I'm sorry, but this link is to a US Senate report, not a peer-reviewed article. If there is a link to a peer-reviewed article, I didn't find it. If you know of one in there, could you please post it. Doug

http://en.wikipedia...._global_warming This article references the 2001 Third Annual Assessment Report. As the Fifth Assessment Report has been published and publication of the sixth one is imminent, I suggest that the information on Wikipedia is more than a little bit obsolete. The article has four lists of dissenting scientists. The first is by people who believe the evidence in support of the most-pessimistic estimates of temperature rise does not support the conclusions. Subsequent climate change has proven them correct, as only the least pessimistic projections have come to pass. Note tha... [More]

I didn't say that that particular link had a peer reviewed article. I said the link to the forbes article posted earlier had a link to a peer reviewed article. I am not going to do all the homework for you. The link is there follow it if you want to. I was asked to provide evidence of scientists debunking man made global warming. I did that. Now that is not good enough. I could post links until I am blue in the face and it won't be good enough because some people will believe whatever the gov't tells them. Mike

I can sit here and post links all day long, but I've posted enough. Just as much evidence against it as for it. Its a theory. Mike With all due respect, the links above are to popular press mater...

Inside the links and articles provided there are quotes/articles from reputable scientists, some of which are climatologists stating that man made global warming is not real. It also punches holes in certain scientific reports that are taken as the truth by so many. Of course you will overlook that and tell me it isn't a scientific journal so it has no credibility. Thats your way of not listening to alternative views other than your own. Whatever, I did my part. Hope you all don't burst into flames because of all of this global warming. Mike
