#161 / Global Warming Violence
According to Craig A. Anderson, of Iowa State University, "each additional degree of warming increases the rate of violent crime (homicides and assaults) by 4.19 cases per 100,000 people." This statistic is quoted in an article titled "Hot Enough For You?" published in a recent edition of the Smithsonian.
Looks like the environmental and law enforcement communities have a new basis for cooperation.
