  1. Well that’s one obscure silver lining! Sure, I killed 40 million people, but I also stopped 40 million people from emitting carbon dioxide. You’re welcome!

  2. And people laud this or think it is amusing that he killed off roughly 10% of the world’s population.

    The *same people* who scream about how COVID-19 is worse than we think!!! Lock down!! Lock DOWNNNNNNN!!!

    Well? By that logic, wouldn’t it be better for everyone if it ran its course? After all, it’s only killed .05% of the population. That’s 200 times less than Genghi!! Well. Percentage-wise. In total numbers he is only 10x ahead.
