Climate change cases war in Syria

“…Iran, a city adjacent to the Persian Gulf, the heat index soared to 73 degrees “as a heatwave continued to bake the Middle East, already one of the hottest places on Earth…An Iraqi government was sacked over its failure to deliver airconditioning.”

From New York Post’s Thomas Friedman, after 4 years of drought and crop failure, Syrians only resort was to move to cities. Government reception was hostility. World crop crises and crippling reductions in foreign aid budgets had all added to complete chaos. Yemen and Iraq share similar problems. Out of control pain, suffering and even cost. How will jet fighter bombers help?
