UN Panel predicts global warming will also heat up tempers worldwide

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is due to issue, what is sure to be a controversial report today, tying “hotter global temperatures to hotter tempers” for the future. In other words, scientists now gathered in Yokohama, Japan, believe that as the mercury rises it will trigger a worsening of international strife between nations as well as civil wars, an increase in refugees, and increased conflicts over food and water as well as sources of energy (and wealth).

“While we are not saying global warming will cause violence, it will be an added factor in making things more dangerous, and contribute greatly to destabilizing the world even more,” stated the IPCC.

“This is a big change from our report 7 years ago,” added lead study author Chris Field of the Carnegie Institution of Science in California. “The summary presented to world leaders back in 2007 did not include anything regarding security issues.”

Note: Scientists report that "each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth's surface than any preceding decade since 1850."
