Desperation Alert: Climate change to cause more crime

I thought I'd heard it all... not even close. According to the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, climate change can cause more crime. The report (a bargain at $5.00 for a hard copy):
examines the implications of climate change for Australia's police forces and officers.
The report has a number of recommendations including the creation of an information hub and the development of risk assessments of the locations that will be most affected by climate change as part of a multi-agency strategic approach to climate change adaptation.

The kinds of crime they foresee include:
  • water theft: individuals stealing water, use of fraudulent water trucks, siphoning from river systems
  • violent protests aimed at the government over perceived inadequate policy responses
  • natural disasters providing an opportunity for looting
  • more "climate refugees" seeking entry to Australia
