Climate Clowns claim war in Syria caused by Climate Change

There is an ever growing list of claims of the things caused by climate change.?

Not a single one of them has proved true and many are simply crazy claims.

Now there is another claim, that the war in Syria and Iraq was caused by climate change.

Drawing one of the strongest links yet between global warming and human conflict, researchers said Monday that an extreme drought in Syriabetween 2006 and 2009 was most likely due to climate change, and that the drought was a factor in the violent uprising that began there in 2011.

The drought was the worst in the country in modern times, and in a studypublished Monday in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the scientists laid the blame for it on a century-long trend toward warmer and drier conditions in the Eastern Mediterranean, rather than on natural climate variability.

The researchers said this trend matched computer simulations of how the region responds to increases in greenhouse-gas emissions, and appeared to be due to two factors: a weakening of winds that bring moisture-laden air from the Mediterranean and hotter temperatures that cause more evaporation.?

Colin P. Kelley, the lead author of the study, said he and his colleagues found that while Syria and the rest of the region known as the Fertile Crescent were normally subject to periodic dry periods, ?a drought this severe was two to three times more likely? because of the increasing aridity in the region.

Dr. Kelley, who did the research while at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and is now at the University of California at Santa Barbara, said there was no apparent natural cause for the warming and drying trend, which developed over the last 100 years, when humans? effect on climate has been greatest.

Martin P. Hoerling, a meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration whose earlier work showed a link between climate change and aridity in the Eastern Mediterranean, said the researchers? study was ?quite compelling.?

?The paper makes a strong case for the first link in their causal chain,? Dr. Hoerling said in an email, ?namely the human interference with the climate so as to increase drought likelihood in Syria.?

Right…so this claim is based on their “model”…can anyone see a problem with that?

A claim based on assumptions and programming rather than facts.

Another climate lie, made by professional liars to scare us into accepting more taxes to “solve” these problems.

Amazing what?0.006 deg C per year?can cause isn’t it?
