Quote of the Day: Ted Turner on Climate and Cannibalism


Do they still call Ted Turner the "The Mouth of the South" since he bought a couple of States out west? In any case, he makes predictions on PBS that make Jim Kunstler look positively utopian. On not taking drastic action to correct global warming:

"Not doing it will be catastrophic. 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. Civilization will have broken down. The few people left will be living in a failed state — like Somalia or Sudan — and living conditions will be intolerable. The droughts will be so bad there'll be no more corn grown. Not doing it is suicide."

No wonder he moved north. ::Ecorazzi, who thinks Ted should shut up.
