Slaughter Due to Climate Change?
Ban wrote in a Washington Post opinion piece — "The Darfur conflict began as an ecological crisis, arising at least in part from climate change... the drying of sub-Saharan Africa derives, to some degree, from man-made global warming. It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought."
Ban says Sudan is not the only country with such problems. He points to Somalia, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso as African countries with what he calls "food and water insecurity."
