Climate change and the Aztec Solution

The Aztec Solution is quite brilliant.

You can hear a podcast of it here at counterpoint, or read the article at Quadrant.

A taste:

Climate modelling of new data from the Aztec Codex Cihuacoatl has identified a relationship with important implications for global warming mitigation. The research suggests a strong causal pathway exists between climate change and Aztec rituals of “nourishing the gods” with blood sacrifice.
