One out of five adults in the UK forget how to do fractions or percentages. But don't feel smug just yet! Look at the other parameters and you'll likely come down a notch or two. I bombed on some of the science answers.

Well worth a read. The relationship between #climate and conflict and much more.
"(Stanford economist Marshall) Burke and his colleagues estimate that a single standard-deviation increase in temperature elevates the risk of person-to-person violence by about 2.5 percent and the risk of group-to-group violence by about 11 percent. These are events with low underlying likelihoods in the first place — most countries aren’t constantly on the brink of civil war, and most people aren’t constantly on the brink of aggravated assault — but in a warming world, the economists argue the effects are appreciable. Some parts of the world are expected to warm by two to four standard deviations by 2050."
