UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Using apocalyptic images, three presidents and seven foreign ministers warned Thursday that a warmer world is also a more violent one.
At a ministerial meeting of the Security Council, the officials urged the U.N.’s most powerful body to do more to address the security implications of climate change and make global warming a key part of all U.N. peacekeeping operations.
The leaders and ministers pushing for more U.N. action said warming is making the world less safe, pointing to Africa’s conflict-plagued Sahel region and Syria and Iraq as examples..
Micheal Martin, Ireland’s president, who chaired the meeting, said climate change “is already contributing to conflict in many parts of the world.” And Vietnam President Nguyen Xuan Phuc said climate change “is a war without gunfire so to speak that causes economic damage and losses in lives no less dire than actual wars.”
“The effects of climate change are particularly profound when they overlap with fragility and past or current conflicts,” said U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. “And when natural resources like water become scarce because of climate change, “grievances and tensions can explode, complicating efforts to prevent conflict and sustain peace.”
“Our lives and daily realities are at the nexus of climate change insecurity,” said Ilwad Elman, a Somali-Canadian peace activist. “The impact of climate change and environmental degradation are also changing what it takes to build peace ... because we are experiencing climate-related shocks and stresses.”
For years, academics who study conflict and climate change have been highlighting how events like a once-in-a-millennium Syrian drought have exacerbated conflicts without being the sole causes. It’s a more nuanced approach to understanding conflict — and to developing tools that reduce its impact on societies.

I know I get a bit testy in the middle of the blast furnace of a Texas summer.
Just getting wound up in anticipation of the November orgy in Glasgow. i don’t know if I want to look when they all get it on together.
They better be checking out what kind of climate they are going to be in for eternity. That’s a climate change question everyone should be asking. Heaven or Hell. Choose Jesus.
Always fun to ask the climates what caused the ice to melt before SUVs, factories, etc....
We had an unheard-of 50 days over 90 degrees this summer in North Idaho. The murder victims are stacked like cordwood everywhere you look!
Well, what would a colder world mean? That is NEVER discussed by the climate alarmists. It could mean loss of many species of plant and animals life; shorter growing seasons and therefore less food; deaths due to freezing, exposure, and malnutrition; increased fuel consumption; mass migration; and war stemming from all of the above.
And what created the deserts in the Middle East, which once had the lush vegetation that created the oil deposits?
This is confirmation, proof positive it is going to be an exceedingly cold winter. Stock up on fuel and groceries before prices skyrocket.
And all the SO2 from the volcanoes is going to make it that much colder.
When these A-holes say, don’t come to the airport, shelter in place, it’s time to rush the C-17s before the privileged ones depart with their hookers and golden tea sets.
By AP’s “climate” heaveyweight gate-keepers - EDITH M. LEDERER and SETH BORENSTEIN.
never trust anyone who calls what used to be “catastrophic anthropogenic global warming” “climate change”.
how these media hacks can carry on with this crap day after day, year after year, decade after decade, I don’t know.
Yeah, strange summer. Hot in the NW, mild and rainy in the south. My cousin told me today that he has had over 100” of rain this year. He lives west of Mobile.
Seth Borenstein is a climate change cultist. Ignore anything he writes.
A world controlled by big govt leftist is really violent.
Ask them how old are the Great Lakes and what formed them? Or why Minnesota is known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes?”
“… pointing to Africa’s conflict-plagued Sahel region and Syria and Iraq as examples.”
Pssst. Not AGW.
A world with Islam in it is a more violent one.
You, yup you:
You and and your family have been C02 creators for over 100 years(if we ignore all the previous centuries).
In just nine more years you are going to kill the planet.
Or maybe just cause AOC to become dehydrated again.
I know! The climate is always changing.
