So the war in Syria is because of the weather, according to Susan Rice.
“In the years prior to civil war breaking out in Syria, that country also experienced its worst drought on record,” she said during a political speech at Stanford University. “Farming families moved en masse into urban centers, increasing political unrest and further priming the country for conflict.”
Let me get this straight, drought creates crisis which results in war. Therefore, California, which has been in an “extreme drought” for four years, could end up like Syria and find itself with increasing political unrest, primed for conflict?
Oh wait, California HAS political unrest! Maybe she IS onto something!
Susan Rice said that even if “climate change isn’t the spark that directly ignites conflict, it increases the size of the powder keg.”
An alarmed Rice warned that climate change was “an advancing menace” that portended doom for the nations around the world.
“Today, we face no greater long-term challenge than climate change, an advancing menace that imperils so many of the other things we hope to achieve,” she said according to advance text of her speech.
In order to solve the Syrian crisis, a rain dance is needed. Rain will stop the war. What have I missed?
