Want to stop global warming?

If so, stop acting like Al Gore with your mansions and private jet travel to conferences around the world. The secret to saving the planet lies in our past and the policies initiated by the planet’s first environmentalist, Genghis Khan:

Be like Khan and save the planet?

Don’t give them any ideas.

The Khan-theory to environmental health has actually been around for awhile now. From the Guardian in 2011 on “the greatest eco-warrior of all time”:

Genghis Khan, in fact, may have been not just the greatest warrior but the greatest eco-warrior of all time, according to a study by the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Energy. It has concluded that the 13th-century Mongol leader’s bloody advance, laying waste to vast swaths of territory and wiping out entire civilisations en route, may have scrubbed 700m tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere – roughly the quantity of carbon dioxide generated in a year through global petrol consumption – by allowing previously populated and cultivated land to return to carbon-absorbing forest.

Yep. Enviros actually think this is a good thing:

The comments to the original tweet are pretty craptastic as well. This guy from India is wishing death on Muslims:

And here’s a response from a Muslim:

Genocide to save the planet? Sigh.
