Genghis Khan the GREEN: Invader killed so many people that carbon levels plummeted
UK Daily Mail ^ | 1/25/11

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 700 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere, claims a new study.

Genghis Khan and today's cap and trade proponents would make an ideal team: depraved indifference to human life coupled with a love of the environment. (I think Hitler liked the environment as well.)

This is exactly the same plan the UN has, they just want it to be a surprise.

Ghengis Khan = Lower Carbon Levels = Earth Cooling = Little ice Age

How many people died in the “Little Ice Age”?

So Khan killed EVEN MORE PEOPLE!!

Some Illiberal logic...

In the demented mind of the liberal, a similar argument could be made for bubonic plague.

Don’t tell Barry about this story. Maybe he won’t see it.

He’s already into baby killing and death panels to the hilt.

Let’s test that. All the Greens and liberals (but I repeat myself) should save the Earth by committing suicide. We’ll make ‘em a nice memorial, we promise!

Yes, Hitler did indeed love the environment. The first environmental protection laws ever passed were in Nazi Germany.

He was also a vegetarian, which I love pointing out anytime I get some self-righteous spiel about the evils of eating meat.

But that poses many problems in itself:

Methodology - Guns are out, as are plastic bags, drowning would waste water. I guess that would leave hanging, but; cotton or manila?

Disposal - Cremation is obviously out, as is burial at sea. We could just put them all in Greenland, but hell, that place is melting. Soylent Green to recycle?

Heck, we could wring 'em out really well before disposing of them in that big 'ol secret salt dome where we dispose of all that nuclear waste! < /sarc >

Just last year, attendees from Communist-controlled China at an environmental conference were laughing about how they were really good at helping the environment because of the 400,000,000 abortions they had forced on the women of China.
This is for real.

So if China and India would just go to war and knock out a sizable chunk of each other’s populations, the whole world would be better off?

Since the trace gas CO2 content in the atmosphere is about 3,000,000,000,000 tons (3,000 gigatons), those alleged 700 million tons are sure to have made a huge difference!

The innumerate are about to seize control of the earth. God help us!

Genghis cooked on that open grill. The left keeps telling us how much our grills cause global warming.

why not be as anti-atmospheric-carbon as ole Genghis

round up all the greenie weenies who believe the propoganda about current “man made global warming” along with its propogandists, and give them one way flights to mars

maybe their decaying carbon-based life forms will perform some atmospheric terraforming on mars and make colonization easier LOL

if you don’t know this is 100% sarcasm, I’m sorry

sometimes, some funny ideas just seem like appropriate “just deserts” even when we know we are not serious

I guess you don’t consider a drop of .0023% as “plummeting”.
