Tempers fray, the skin itches, and the desire to punch the lights out of someone increases dramatically as the temperature increases.
With AGW, the temperature is set to increase, and that means that me, you, everybody - suffering from the heat effects, will immediately lash out and punch or maim our fellow suffering humans.
Latest report from The Age is sourced at: http://www.theage.com.au/national/violence-to-rise-as-city-gets-hotter-20080808-3sen.html
Money quote: "The report also says Victorian police acknowledge the need to prepare for increased violence in hotter conditions.
"Studies and anecdotal reports indicate a correlation between violence and anti-social behaviour and high temperatures. Rising temperatures are expected to exacerbate this effect," it says.
"Victorian police have commented that they are needing to consider the operational implications of hotter conditions, including increased violence and security concerns."
Kaboom sez: Given the proclivity for Victorian Police to shoot first, ask questions later, maybe we need to also look at AGW awareness training and psychological assessments of every serving officer carrying heat (no pun intended) in Victoria.
