CNN's Founder Says Mass Cannibalism Is Coming

CNN's Founder Says Mass Cannibalism Is Coming

Ted Turner, CNN founder, philanthropist, and ex-husband of Jane Fonda, is pretty concerned about global warming, as well as US foreign policy. Here are some highlights from this week's interview with PBS's Charlie Rose:

  • What will happen if we don't take drastic action toward global warming? "We'll be eight degrees hotter in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals."
  • Does the US need a big military? “China just wants to sell us shoes. They're not building landing craft to attack the United States,” and “even with our $500 billion military budget, we can't win in Iraq. We're being beaten by insurgents who don't even have any tanks."
  • What about those Iraqi insurgents? "I think that they're patriots and that they don't like us because we've invaded their country and occupied it. I think if the Iraqis were in Washington, D.C., we'd be doing the same thing: we'd be bombing them too. Nobody wants to be invaded."

Ted Turner said that there are too many people in the world. Well, I have to say that he is one of those "too many people."

redegg: I think maybe he used to have some sense. Being married to Jane Fonda from December 1991 until May 2001 may have killed off a few brain cells.

Well I have to say after seeing the clip of him saying that $#!+, I would love the opportunity to drop kick his ass off the top of the CNN tower in Atlanta. The man is the definition of tactless and gives no thought what so ever to how his words damage the very ideology that he says he supports. However, once again I say this:For those of you who feel that (alarmists) are simply too alarmed over the issue. Do not be swayed into indifference & complacency by some people’s poor judgment to exaggerate facts to prove a point. There is every need for all of us to act diligently in taking very simple measures to ensure a sustainable future. Which ever semantics you choose to prescribe to the end result must be conservation.

Whenever cannibalism is mentioned, I'm reminded of the scriptural description of Hell as "the gnashing of teeth."Frightful.~ I think Mr. Turner might be coaxing the drama a bit much. ~

My kids and I were discussing this story yesterday evening. I think we concluded that, what with all the pollution and toxins in the environment already (according to the fringe alarmists), if we turned to cannabalism we'd die off even faster because we'd poison ourselves.
