Violence

Post by Guest on August 4th 2013, 1:28 am

Bring on the cool weather — climate change is predicted to cause extreme weather, more intense storms, more frequent floods and droughts, but could it also cause us to be more violent with one another? A new study from scientists in the US controversially draws a link between increased rates of domestic violence, assault and other violent crimes and a warming climate.

That conflict could be a major result of global warming has long been accepted. As climate change makes vulnerable parts of the world more susceptible to weather-related problems, people move from an afflicted region to neighbouring areas, bringing them into conflict with the existing populations. That pattern has been evident around the world, and experts have even posited that conflicts such as Darfur should be regarded as climate related. But the authors of the study, published in the peer review journal Science, have departed from such examples to look closely at patterns of violence in Brazil, China, Germany and the US.

The authors suggest that even a small increase in average temperatures or unusual weather can spark violent behaviour. They found an increase in reports of domestic violence in India and Australia at times of drought; land invasions in Brazil linked to poor weather; and more controversially, a rise in the number of assaults and murders in the US and Tanzania.

. . . The underlying reasons could run from increased economic hardship as harvests fail or droughts bite, to the physiological effects of hot weather.

We I believe create some of this weather via our spiritual practices.

When we send healing to another... it is traveling through time and space and displacing  the energy around this.. this in turn creates the ripple effect ... the butterfly effect. Which in turn is displacing  the next thing.

If several are sending around the globe then eventually they collide the  displaced air which shatters into hurricanes or conjoins to become tornados etc.etc etc

Of course it causes emotional reactions.

Aren't you almost giddy on the first  beautiful spring morning. Doesn't your heart  and mood lighten.
Weather effects everyone into good moods, bad moods, dangerous moods.
Each reaction  causes a reaction  in us and around us.

Yes,have heard of this,Stephen.    
Children become cranky with too much heat.    Even myself here in the UK,when late evening approaches I feel I have had too much heat.     I want the day to end so I can feel more comfortable.   My favourite time of the day is early morning.
Hot or cold,I open my back door and stand there for awhile enjoying the fresh air whether it is freezing or not.

Very Happy

I agree heat does make folk less tolerant and of course drought, poor crops etc cause worry and stress, leading to frayed tempers.

I would not have thought about healing energy causing havoc in the skies .....
Maybe asking it not to before sending?
