Hsiang, SM, and M Burke (2014). Climate, Conflict and Social Stability: What does the evidence say? Climatic Change 123: 39-55.
Examines 50 rigorous quantitative studies on the question of whether violent conflict and socio-political stability are associated with changes in climatological variables and finds consistent support for a causal association between climatological changes and various conflict outcomes, at spatial scales ranging from individual buildings to the entire globe and at temporal scales ranging from an anomalous hour to an anomalous millennium.
