    Researchers have long struggled to explain why some violent crime rates are higher near the equator than other parts of the world. Now, a team of researchers have developed a model that could help explain why.
    This new model goes beyond the simple fact that hotter temperatures seem to be linked to more aggressive behavior.
    The researchers believe that hot climates and less variation in seasonal temperatures leads to a faster life strategy, less focus on the future, and less self-control – all of which contribute to more aggression and violence.
    According to researchers, climate shapes how people live, it affects the culture in ways that we don’t think about in our daily lives, and their model can help explain the impact of climate on rates of violence in different parts of the world.

    Or as the proverb in my northern home territory has it: hard winters are good - they keep the riffraff out.
