Weather made me do it

Oh, foi God's sake:

Shifts in climate are strongly linked to increases in violence around the world, a study suggests.

US scientists found that even small changes in temperature or rainfall correlated with a rise in assaults, rapes and murders, as well as group conflicts and war.

The team says with the current projected levels of climate change, the world is likely to become a more violent place.

The study is published in Science.

Is there anything bad that can't be blamed on "climate change"? Even if A is real, which is a matter of some dispute, that doesn't mean it causes B. It's called the post hoc fallacy, science guys.

This just in: Hot weather makes your dog cranky. Let's spend billions!
