German professor Harald Welzer: "we will see a renaissance of violent conflict in the 21st century, and many of these conflicts will spring from climate change"

"You always have a higher potential for violent conflict when the survival conditions of groups of people are threatened. [...] if all these scientists and climate researchers are right, or even close to right, what does it mean for greater potential for violent conflict? I think the answers are not encouraging."

"My belief is that we will see a renaissance of violent conflict in the 21st century, and that many of these conflicts will spring from climate change."

"Ideology will always be a surface-level justification for conflict, but if you look deeply at the source of future conflicts, I think you’ll see a basic resource conflict at the bottom of it all."
