Climate change may increase violence

Reading about the middle East (rantburg and atlas shrugs) it looks to me it is religion that's the catalyst for violence, I presume the middle east is usually hot most of the year, hence all that desert. Sunni and Shiite are the two factions of the same religion that are slaughtering each other.
