    I suppose in one way it is "obvious" that climate change could lead to violence. People have speculated about it for decades. But, often, the "obvious" turns out to be untrue, or, at least, unproven. In this case, it is interesting to see that modern statistical methods are able to quantify the effect. Climate change leads to social issues.
