Bill Nye Explains The Connection Between Climate Change And Terrorism

Following the COP21 summit kickoff on Monday, Bill Nye joined HuffPost Live and explained how terrorist attacks, like those executed in Paris earlier this month, are “the result of” climate change.

Nye’s reasoning hinges on a water shortage in Syria, which researchers have blamed on climate change. As Nye explained, the shortage has stunted farming and pushed young people to look for work in more densely populated areas.

Nye: “Young people have gone to big cities looking for work. There’s not enough work for everybody, so the disaffected youths, as we say — the young people who don’t believe in the system, believe the system has failed, don’t believe in the economy — are more easily engaged and more easily recruited by terrorist organizations, and then they end up part way around the world in Paris shooting people.”

Nye: “You can make a very reasonable argument that climate change is not that indirectly related to terrorism… This is just the start of things. The more we let [climate change] go on, the more trouble there’s going to be.”
