Iowa State Distinguished Professor of psychology Craig Anderson will outline three ways global warming increases the risk of human violence. Sigma Xi Lecture Series.

Rapid global warming is already having devastating economic, political, and social consequences worldwide. In this presentation, Iowa State Distinguished Professor of psychology Craig Anderson will outline three very different ways global warming increases the risk of human violence: the direct effect of heat-induced irritability on aggression and violence; known pre-and post-natal risk factors for creating violence-prone adults; and the effects of ecological disasters on migration and the consequent political instability, intergroup violence, and war. Anderson will also discuss implications for action on climate change and on preparing for the challenges of eco-migration.
