GREEN EAST ASIA

Mongolia’s Genghis Khan was branded by scholars as the greenest invader in history -- 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, claimed a new study. The killing of 40M people meant that large areas of cultivated land grew thick once again with trees, which absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (thus telling scholars the story).

And, although GK’s genocidal methods (only exceeded later by those of China’s Mao) were difficult for environmentalists to accept, ecologists were coming to believe it may have been the first-ever case of successful man-made global cooling (Daily Mail, 25 i).

{One of the most striking things about Asian history was the sheer violence of it, far beyond anything the West could show – its deathly technologies of the 20th century achieving little compared to Mao.}
