Climate Experts blame a Population Collapse during a Severe Drought on Anger not Famine

Week in Review

Here’s another study by climate experts to show why we don’t have to worry about anything climate experts say (see Climate change linked to increase in violence, war posted 8/2/2013 on cbcnews).

The world is likely to become a more violent place as temperatures continue to rise as a result of climate change, a new study suggests.

Published in Science, the study links elevated temperatures and changes in rainfall to the rise of personal assaults and group conflicts such as civil war…

“We find strong causal evidence linking climatic events to human conflict … across all major regions of the world,” researchers said.

Hsiang also noted the collapse of the Mayan civilization occurred during periods of severe drought more than 1,200 years ago.

Wow.  Severe drought 1,200 years ago caused the collapse of the Mayan civilization.  Because they got violent with the rising temperatures and turned on each other.  Killing themselves out of existence.  That’s one explanation for why the Mayan civilization collapsed during a severe drought.  Here’s another.  That severe drought caused a famine.  Without food these people starved to death.  And those who didn’t fought over the diminishing food supplies.

Today when we have a severe drought we complain about high food prices.  Because our agricultural techniques are so advanced that even with a severe drought there is always enough food to feed us.  And with fossil fuels there is always fuel for ships, trains and planes to transport food from places not suffering a severe drought to a place that is.  Even perishable produce.  Something that just wasn’t possible 1,200 years ago.

There is a theory called Occam’s razor.  Which states the simplest explanation is often the correct explanation.  If you hear the pounding of hooves in the United States you think of horses.  Not zebras.  This is what these climate experts are telling us.  They want us to think zebras where there are only horses.

Did people die out during a severe drought because they were so angry over climate change that they started killing each other?  Or did they die out during a severe drought because there was no food to eat and they starved to death?  Is it zebras?   Or horses?  Occam’s razor tells us it’s horses.  And it probably is.
