This is a bit of an environmentally deterministic argument about why the Mongols were so successful, but it is interesting nonetheless.

Michelle Carvajal's curator insight, December 11, 2012 10:47 PM

This article further emphasizes how herders in rural country areas of Mongolia have lost their cattle to harsh winters. Many depend on their cattle for food and trade. The winters in Mongolia gran reach temperatures to forty below zero and there is not enough room in warm buildings created by these herders to save all the livestock they own. It's interesting how a product of Cashmere has increased the livestock population in Mongolia over the past feW years. Now, the government has to find new ways to control it. People are devastacted by their losses and blame the climate for it. Summers are no longer producing enough rains to sustain enough wildlife nor giving the land what it needs to be able to crop in it. - M. Carvajal
