    Yeah. The weather makes people do things ...

    First, the OP thread title says "contributed" so I'm not sure why two posts in we're discussed "caused." It's clear that social and political issues are important, but researchers have been wondering about the link between rising food prices in Tunisia and the opening days of the Arab Spring.

    From a 2013 Scientific American article:

    That seems rather insulting. Australia isn't that backward.

    They're a fairly forward thinking country, actually. Australia is the only place in the world where you can find trans animals.

    And is it any coincidence that that the USA has the most violent, extreme weather of any place on earth?

    Sure.

    It wasn't the fact that the US government supplied all the hardware.
    It was the weather. :p

    Priceless! :D
