Christopher Columbus Accused of Causing Climate Change

No wonder liberals hate Christopher Columbus so much for infecting the Western Hemisphere with Western Civilization. According to malevolent kooks in academia who are eagerly amplified by the malevolent kooks at CNN, he caused climate change:

European settlers killed 56 million indigenous people over about 100 years in South, Central and North America, causing large swaths of farmland to be abandoned and reforested, researchers at University College London, or UCL, estimate. The increase in trees and vegetation across an area the size of France resulted in a massive decrease in carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, according to the study.

If you believe that European settlers killed 56 million people, that the Stone Age savages they encountered were involved in agriculture on this scale, that there was less agriculture after Europeans came than before, or that any of this had any measurable effect on the constantly fluctuating climate, you might just be a Democrat.

Until Columbus arrived in 1492 to spoil paradise for the noble savages,

“CO2 and climate had been relatively stable until this point,” said UCL Geography Professor Mark Maslin, one of the study’s co-authors. “So, this is the first major change we see in the Earth’s greenhouse gases.”

That is a flat out lie. Anyone with even a vague awareness of the planet’s history knows that both temperatures and CO2 levels have varied tremendously. This is probably because higher temperatures allow for more life; life produces CO2. But then temperatures fall, so afterward there is less CO2.

However, we are now asked to believe that the Little Ice Age was caused by Christopher Columbus.

Since reforestation supposedly resulted in global cooling, look for “experts” to advise that farms be left fallow so as to cool the allegedly overheated planet. That would be consistent with the antihuman agenda of the liberal establishment.

Confirming that this is about Cultural Marxist hatred of European Civilization, not science, Maslin raves bitterly that the “genocide” of American aborigines “allowed the Europeans to dominate the world.”

It is doubtful that the propaganda Nazis generated to defame Jews ever reached the level of viciousness the liberal establishment continuously vomits upon Caucasians. Terrifyingly, gullible people take these insidious calumnies at face value and incorporate them into a dangerously delusional understanding of the world.
