How to prevent crime? 'Rein in the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing global warming in the first place.'
Controversial new research predicts that over the coming century, rising temperatures will result in more violent crime...'Police have long operated with the understanding that 'the summer is more dangerous than the winter,' explains Roman. 'To the extent that climate change causes people to be out and interacting more, there will be more crime.'
'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. That's the conclusion of a controversial new study that 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. "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime," says study author Matthew Ranson, an economist with policy consulting firm Abt Associates. "We think that is likely to continue in the future."
Jane Pauley: "Searing heat, massive wildfires, catastrophic flooding. Unequivocal evidence the United Nations says that climate change is real and that human activity is its primary cause. So how bad can it get?” Pauley asked. “According to some scientists, the possibility of worldwide societal collapse or even eventual human extinction isn't out of the question. It's a harsh warning to say the least.”
Jane Pauley features NASA scientist Peter Kalmus who declares "I do want people freaking out." on climate.
Peter had been pleading, begging for people to pay attention to the global emergency. “Is this my personal hell?” he tweeted this past fall. “That I have to spend my entire life desperately trying to convince everyone NOT TO DESTROY THE FUCKING EARTH?”
Bill Gates: This "sets a clear example of what serious climate action looks like."
“As [Gates] revealed to Bloomberg Green, he has quietly lobbied Manchin and other senators, starting before Biden had won the White House, in anticipation of a rare moment in which heavy federal spending might be secured for the clean-energy transition,” Bloomberg said.
Edward Ring: "If left unchecked, this fascistic climate change movement will destroy freedom and prosperity while it destroys the planet it purportedly wants to save. Ideological and Economic Fascism Combined - This is not a frivolous accusation because, in this case, the shoe fits. There are two types of fascism. One is based on ideology and manipulates popular emotions, and the other is based on economics and appeals to elitist greed. The climate crisis movement has found a way to combine both."
