AS the world gets warmer, people’s tempers are likely to get hotter, scientists say.
A massive new study finds that aggressive acts like committing violent crimes and waging war become more likely with each added degree.
Researchers analyzed 60 studies on historic empire collapses, recent wars, and violent crime rates in the United States and lab simulations that tested police decisions on when to shoot.
“When the weather gets bad, we tend to be more willing to hurt other people,” said economist Solomon Hsiang of the University of California, Berkeley.
He is the lead author of the study, published by the journal Science.
It shows that the effect of its getting increased more and more, specially in the middle east . So,In near future it will be a important issue of public sentiment .
The team of economists even came up with a formula that predicts how much the risk of different types of violence should increase with extreme weather.
