Read here. Global warming alarmists and agenda-driven pundits frequently spread the meme that global warming will cause more wars, leading to all sorts of imagined scenarios of mayhem, destruction and death later this century and next. Is there any actual empirical evidence backing these more-war claims up? Nope.
In a new peer-reviewed study, researchers examine the empirical evidence and find the claims of retired, fat-
assed admirals and generals (real and the armchair variety) to be without merit. Surprised?
"In their conclusions, the authors state “We present some evidence that periods with lower temperatures in the pre-industrial era are accompanied by violent conflicts”, consistent with what others had found in China. Furthermore, they note “If anything, lower temperatures imply violence, and this effect is much weaker in the modern world than it was in pre-industrial times. This implies that future global warming is not likely to lead to (civil) war between (within) European countries.”.....Another popular claim about global warming is once again not supported by what has been observed for centuries – sound familiar?"
Blue/green colors indicate a low correlation between high temperatures and violence. Red reveals the high correlation regions.
Of course, per the evidence, Turkey and the Balkans appear to have a strong correlation with warmth and war. Or, is that a correlation between a certain religion and war/terrorism? And what about Iceland? Yep, them damn Vikings and their distant relatives were pretty frisky during the Medieval Warming until the icy depths of the Little Ice Age finally put Iceland and Greenland back in the deep freezer.
