Syria’s war and climate change?

Interesting scientific study published that draws links between climate change and the 2008-2010 droughts that seriously hurt Syria’s economy and possibly the government’s legitimacy as well. Though the study doesn’t go so far as to say climate change caused the war, it does imply that it was a contributing factor. Unclear how verifiable the science is, but an interesting idea nonetheless.
