Crazy from the (lack of) heat

Stumbled across this at Tatyana’s place, and decided to give it a signal boost:

Chicago versus Houston

For reference, the average January high in Oklahoma City is 50. In 2012, an unusually bad year, we had 99 homicides, which is about 15.5 per 100k population.

    Yeah, must be the climate…

    Oh, wait – does this mean the Relative Homicide Rate can be directly affected by Glowball Wormering/Koolering/Hooman-Bean-Alterationing?

    (Fictional) Anthropogenic Climate Changering – is there anything it can’t do?!?!

    I could point out that January is only about one-twelfth of the year — but then I’d have to explain the torturous sweatbox that is Houston in July.
