Kerry Blames Debunked Global Warming Claim For Syrian Conflict

Secretary of State John Kerry said Saturday he believes global warming played a role in exacerbating the Syrian conflict.

“It is not a coincidence that immediately prior to the civil war in Syria, the country experienced the worst drought on record,” Kerry said during a speech in Milan Friday, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“Now, I’m not telling you that the crisis in Syria was caused by climate change,” Kerry said, adding that global warming “clearly made a bad situation a lot worse,”
