Of course, its not just Syria where climate has contributed to conflict. The reasons for that are many: the timid language of scientific probabilities, which the climatologist James Hansen once called scientific reticence in a paper chastising scientists for editing their own observations so conscientiously that they failed to communicate how dire the threat really was; the. At seven degrees of warming, that would become impossible for large portions of the planets equatorial band, and especially the tropics, where humidity adds to the problem; in the jungles of Costa Rica, for instance, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside. To the home populations, the fear of communism was touted, even if it was not the case, in order to gain support. But any individual who ran into the obstacle and suffered physical injuries or property damage could recover in tort.
