Ted Turner at the Clinton Global Initiative


Media mogul Ted Turner, in a working session on energy and climate change, said that global warming is the biggest thing to happen to us, short of getting bombed by the Russians. God bless 'im.

One of solar power's more visible cheerleaders of late, Turner invested several million dollars last year in the New Jersey-based DT Solar. He also created a holding company, Turner Renewable Energy, and has said that he plans to start lobbying lawmakers in Washington to promote solar power and address climate change.

Better keep an eye on those durn Ruskies, though, Ted.

Update: When asked for his final thoughts, Turner waved and said, "Hi Mom."
