um hello on what world does cold cause famine? Heat causes famine because it dries up all the water and kills crops.
The black plague has nothing to do with this, it was spread by fleas.
Please get your facts straight.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
