Colonisation of the Americas at the end of the 15th Century killed so many people, it disturbed Earth's climate.
Which I think is highly dubious.
It happened but it wasn't due to colonization. It was a First Contact scenario. The Spanish brought pigs with them and introduced diseases that spread faster than the explorers. When the Puritans landed at Plymouth Rock, they found deserted villages.
