Genghis Khan Statue

Why on earth would anyone commission a bronze statue of Genghis Khan on horseback to stand at Marble Arch in London (title link)? The man was a psychopath who killed 40 million people. The Carnegie Institution's Department of Global Ecology found that carbon levels plummeted at that time, because so few people were left to cultivate the land and trees grew in place of crops. The researchers estimate nearly 700 million tons of carbon were removed from the atmosphere (CLICK). Anyway, above is the contentious piece: Dashi Namdakov's 16ft tall Genghis Khan (2012).

Tell the Carnegie Institution's Department of Global Ecology. They did the research. It is undisputed Genghis Khan was a butcher who killed many millions. What part don't you believe?

Why does everyone want to defend Genghis Khan? He created a huge empire by force of arms and sheer terror. His army gave no quarter. But don't myth-makers love these psychopathic megalomaniacs: Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Mao Zedong, Adolf Hitler. All heroes to somebody! I'll stick with the scientific approach. Scientists try to establish the truth.
