Another thing about this article (and the many others) is the assumption that "Americans" have been here forever, like in European history. We have not, aside from a few Europeans and some Spanish and of course the
indigenous Indian Tribes, we have no history here. .incomparison with other worldly countries..with 100s if not thousands of years of "History".....anyone ever notice that ? So..... these nut cases are calling for death of the wrong people anyway.!! But then, the idea of "revenge" either having it or receiving it is so foreign to my thought process. Karma takes care of all that, am busy watching my own actions, most of the time. Revenge, not to be confused with "Justice" and there is not much of that Iv'e noticed.
America colonisation ‘cooled Earth's climate’
By Jonathan Amos BBC Science Correspondent

Colonisation of the Americas at the end of the 15th Century killed so many people, it disturbed Earth's climate.
That's the conclusion of scientists from University College London, UK.
The team says the disruption that followed European settlement led to a huge swathe of abandoned agricultural land being reclaimed by fast-growing trees and other vegetation.
This pulled down enough carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the atmosphere to eventually chill the planet.
It's a cooling period often referred to in the history books as the "Little Ice Age" - a time when winters in Europe would see the Thames in London regularly freeze over.
"The Great Dying of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas led to the abandonment of enough cleared land that the resulting terrestrial carbon uptake had a detectable impact on both atmospheric CO₂ and global surface air temperatures," Alexander Koch and colleagues write in their paper published .

Are there lessons for modern climate policy?
Co-author Dr Chris Brierley believes there is. He said the fall-out from the terrible population crash and re-wilding of the Americas illustrated the challenge faced by some global warming solutions.
