"We found that during the short events such as the Black Death and the Ming Dynasty collapse, the forest re-growth wasn't enough to overcome the emissions from decaying material in the soil," explained (Julia) Pongratz. "But during the longer-lasting ones like the Mongol invasion... there was enough time for the forests to re-grow and absorb significant amounts of carbon."
You know who really made a difference? You know who like toad-al-ly hit the reset button on Mother Earth’s Carbon Cycle? Genghis Khan! That’s who. Oh, and guess how Ghengis Green pulled off this remarkable feat of sustainability and environmental stewardship? He whacked people – 40 million of them in fact. For Mother Earth’s climate machinery, dead people are Solyent Green.
Of course, Solyent Green was a movie that espoused the liberal environmentalist myth that there were too many of us and that we were only capable of ruining everything. This has been profoundly debunked.
Haven’t you heard? Why of course not. Good news about the environment sells no newspapers, launches no “scientific” careers. It requires no “fierce urgency of now” from the politicians who have for decades used environmental fears as a cynical proxy by which they could garner increasingly fascistic power over the daily lives of their citizenry.
Fortunately, Dominic Lawson of the UK Independent had the courage to spread good news and mess with a lot powerful people’s money. The Gospel according to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in France follows below.
As the report's lead author, Dr Tim Fox, pointed out, its verdict is not based on speculative guesses about the development of new agricultural processes as yet unknown: "We can meet the challenge of feeding a planet of 9 billion people through the application of existing technologies". For example, Dr Fox pointed out, in Africa, no less than half the food produced is destroyed before it reaches its local marketplace: with refrigeration and good roads, the developing world could avoid this horrendous waste.
Interestingly, another detailed report on "sustainability" published last week by the French national agricultural and development research agencies came up with the same answer. The French scientists set themselves the goal of discovering whether a global population of 9 billion, the likely peak according to the UN, could readily have access to 3,000 calories a day, even as farms take measures to cut down on the use of fossil fuels and refrain from cutting down more forests: their answer was, you will be thrilled to know, "yes".
But that sort of a narrative just won’t do. Bermuda-based “philanthropist” James Martin has just given Oxford University $125M to do more “science.” He’s even been kind enough to tell them what their conclusions will be before they start. By mid-century, according to Martin, we will have “gigi-famines” where billions of undernourished people starve. If only Carl Sagan were still around to do the voice-over; “Billions and Billions and Billions…..”
So obviously, we have to get rid of all these inconvenient people. They’re kind of like a “Jewish Problem” or something. If only we could find a nice, humane solution – something that was safe, legal and rare. Something that would stop all those poor, misguided Dearies from, you know, breeding.
Regrettably, Genghis Khan’s environmental policies have fallen out of vogue. The Great Leap Forward, The Holocaust and the Purges of Stalin have given them a bad odor in PR Flack circles. We need a more subtle and more “gentle” way to get rid of these people. It’s even better if the people “choose” to help us do it themselves. In a Letter to Wormwood, Screwtape recommended that he look up a really smart lady named Margaret Sanger.
You see Margaret Sanger knew exactly how to make that environmental problem known as the human race rapidly recede. She wasn’t quite as efficient as The Mongol Hordes when she started out, but by golly the Little Lady knew how to build an empire! And she knew how to identify the human weeds as well! Here’s just a little sample of her wit and wisdom from Dianedew.com.
"The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
Sure, just ask John Edwards or Albert Gore. And here’s how Margaret Sanger handled the whole “Affirmative Action” Thingy…
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," she said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Dog forbid they ever go and get uppity!
So rather than having to engage in mechanized warfare and risk getting shot at, we make eugenic extermination an industry. It makes money, like AMWAY! Between 2006 and 2007, the US Government gave her legacy, Planned Parenthood, $336.7M. They provide opportunities for stimulus! They get government grants and support sustainable planning– it’s the new American Way!
And boy, when it comes to helping out Captain Planet…You see Genghis Khan only took out 40 million of the troublesome carbon-farters. The Global Abortion Industry? They put Old One-Nut Adolf to shame! Since Roe V. Wade in the US of A; we’ve disposed of 46M in Yanqui-Town alone.
Wow! Take a look at that wonderful society being developed in China! They know how to make abortion work! One child per family – that’ll reduce a carbon footprint! Four grandparents, two parents and one child – brilliant! It makes me want to shed a tear and plant a tree! That Genghis, he was just horsing around!
Of course this was written in mordant sarcasm. I personally approve no more of the current, blatantly eugenic, use of abortion in America and China than I would of having Genghis Green’s horse cavalry burn my little boy’s nursery school. The abortionists, the anti-human environmental movement, pro-euthanasia types who want to pull the plug on other little children’s grandparents – they all hate life.
They all hate me for the simple and basic crime of my very existence. Thus I think it is only basic self-preservation that I hate these evil people with the passion that a decent WWII American GI hated Adolf Hitler. I hope that’s what you took away from reading this blog post.
