Does “Climate Change” Bring More Crime?

Marc Morano posted a link to this LA Times Story.

“Between 2010 and 2099, climate change can be expected to cause an additional 22,000 murders” …. blah blah blah.

So I grabbed California’s murder rate from 1960-2012 and grabbed California’s annual temperature from the NOAA.

Once upon a time you could maybe argue there was a correlation.  But not anymore.
