Global Warming Will Cause 180,000 More Rapes by 2100

Global Warming Will Cause 180,000 More Rapes by 2100 says a new study, reports Jeremy Schulman at the Climate Desk. Global warming isn’t just going to melt the Arctic and flood our cities—it’s also going to make Americans more likely to kill each other, concludes a controversial new study . It uses historic crime and temperature data to show that hotter weather leads to more murders, more rapes, more robberies, more assaults, and more property crimes. And growing populations mean there will be many

more people to shoot.  Lucky for me, I won’t be around for this brave new world.

 

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.

  1. I’m glad I’m 62!
    Sounds like the movie “A Clockwork Orange” times 100!
