No. It’s not April 1st. And even if it had been I would not have been able to make this up:
Gun violence is already a pressing public health concern in the U.S., and a new study has found a troubling link between it and the overheating of our planet.
As temperatures across the country soar and unseasonably warm days continue, the number of gun deaths across the country has gone up.
Nearly 8,000 gun shootings can be attributed to extreme temperatures, according to research published by JAMA Network.
The study analyzed 100 major U.S. cities with the highest proportion of gun violence between 2015 and 2020. It found that out of 116 ,511 shootings, roughly 6.85% (or 7,973) were attributable to above-average temperatures.
This means that if we successfully address global warming we can get rid of all the gun control laws.
