SAN FRANCISCO — Drought was a key factor contributing to unrest and civil war in Syria, and the severity of the drought was probably a result of human-caused climate change, new research presented here Monday (Dec. 9) at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union suggests. The study analysis suggests that the drought was too severe to be simply a result of natural variability in precipitation. "We don't have any observed evidence to support a 100-year trend in precipitation that we would prescribe as being natural," said study co-author Colin Kelley, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California at Santa Barbara. "He was making the case that in each case there was an overlooked environmental stress that was important," Kelley told LiveScience.
The potential threats stemming from global climate change is something that countries across the world are considering — China is now the latest to publish a comprehensive look at what pitfalls might await it due to global warming and how it can work around those challenges. According to The Wall Street Journal, this new plan covers a number of initiatives the country wants to put into action by 2020 to fight the effects of climate change. It's not dissimilar to the climate change executive order President Obama released last month. That order called upon agencies like the Department of Defense, EPA, and NOAA to create plans of their own; China's plan has already been signed off by the ministries of finance, housing, transportation, water, agriculture and forestry.
