Climate, aggression, and violence (CLASH): a cultural-evolutionary approach

Maria I. Rinderu, Brad J. Bushman, Paul AM Van Lange

Research output: Scientific - peer-reviewReview article

Abstract

The CLimate, Aggression, and Self-control in Humans (CLASH) proposes that aggression and violence increase as climates become hotter and seasonal variation becomes smaller by influencing time-orientation and self-control. Emerging empirical evidence supporting the model is reviewed. Wealth, income inequality, and pathogen stress as powerful influences of these processes are also discussed. We conclude by discussing the theoretical and societal importance of climate change in shaping violence.
