Genghis Khan the GREEN: Invader killed so many people that carbon levels plummeted
Daily Mail ^ | January 25, 2011 | Daily Mail reporter

Posted on 04/20/2013 12:16:46 PM PDT by plain talk

Genghis Khan has been branded the greenest invader in history - after his murderous conquests killed so many people that huge swathes of cultivated land returned to forest. The Mongol leader, who established a vast empire between the 13th and 14th centuries, helped remove nearly 700million tons of carbon from the atmosphere, claims a new study. The deaths of 40 million people meant that large areas of cultivated land grew thick once again with trees, which absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

He left a pyramid at what is present-day Herat, Iran which numbered about 70k. I think they left him alone for a long time after that. Correct me if I’m wrong.

40 million people? Isn’t that figure an overestimation?

I think it’s Tamerlane noted for mountains of skulls. Same deal though.

I predict that the EPA will one day be in charge of killing camps, authorized by their mission to decrease the emission of CO2 (human exhalation) as a greenhouse gas.

and a bit tongue-in-cheek ...

Tongue-in-cheek indeed. But it should remind us that the not-so-hidden agenda of the people who want to "protect the environment" is population reduction. Everything they support is aimed at reducing both the quality and quantity of life on this planet. In fact they don't give 2 cents for the environment.

And the crops that were cultivated on that land didn't absorb carbon dioxide. God what morons.

About 60 million Russians died during WWII. Does Stalin deserve a “Green” medal?

Of you ever listen to podcasts check out Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History. He has an eight and a half hour series on the Kahns. It is a very interesting story.

There are less icky ways to green things up. Doesn’t New England have more forest than it used to, because there is less tilled land than, say, 150 years ago? And more wildlife is coming back (some of which is predators). Improved agricultural production resulted in more wild land. And no icky body piles. So there, Gengis.

What was Hilter, Chopped Liver?

I mean he was a vegan, teetotaler, non-smoker, and he eliminated Jews who slaughtered animals for food. What was not to love for an environmentalist whacko?

Since he killed 40 million does this mean he was more green than Hitler or Stalin?

So Genghis Khan caused the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to plummet... and several centuries later, the Little Ice Age takes place, which causes widespread death, famine, and pestilence. A cooling Earth is not a pretty place to live.

I’ve read a bit about the history of the Kahn’s ... some of the most interesting reading I’ve done. The Mongols were basically unstoppable until they ran into a little thing called the Black Plague.

Another four years of far left extremism, and Obama may pass Genghis Khan as the most environmentally friendly ruler in history. I am not optimistic about the next four years under this regime.

Euthanasia centers for enviro’s to assuage their carbon guilt. The waste byproduct is high in manure content and could be used for growing trees, a two-fer.

The Mongols were close to unstoppable, but it’s an interesting question what might have happened had they penetrated further west into areas of Europe that weren’t natural horse country.

Film about muslims with a happy ending, basically the story of the ****head (Inalchik) who thought he was going to show Genghis Khan how bad he (the ****head) was by intercepting a Mongolian trade caravan, taking everything and killing everybody and when Genghis Khan sent four ambassadors to figure out what had happened, burning their beards off and sending them back that way.

Mongolian movie dubbed into Russian.

Why do liberals and leftists use the expression “to the right of Genghis Khan”? Given his accomplishments in urban redevelopment and population control, wasn’t he one of tnem?

The Mongols were close to unstoppable, but it’s an interesting question what might have happened had they penetrated further west into areas of Europe that weren’t natural horse country.

In fact, we got a preview of that answer when they tried to extend into India. Basically they ended up saying ... "Thanks but no thanks!"

Genghis Khan's first raid was supposedly to rescue is wife, who had been kidnapped by another tribe. I got a sense that after that he just found he had to stay on the offensive until it became a way of life.

The Mongols were also the first true globalists.

I often wonder if those cities that simply let the Mongols take over didn't end up better off than they were before the Mongols, because they no longer had a need for big defensive forces. (The tributes those cities paid may have been less than the taxes we pay here in the US today!)

I remember reading a military history figure of from 20 to 40 million killed in China to create grazing territory instead of farmland for their horses. And huge numbers were killed in the West. Persia was decimated among other areas.

After the great Tambora volcanic eruption in 1815, there was the year with no summer in New England and other places. There was no month that did not have some snow. Many people left there for other territory further south.
