Failure to address global warming will have us all dead or eating each other by mid-century.
So says Ted Turner, the restaurateur, environmentalist and former media mogul whose controversial comments have earned him the nickname “Mouth of the South.”
If steps aren’t taken to stem global warming, “We’ll be eight degrees hotter in 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow,” Turner said during a wide-ranging, hour-long interview with PBS’s Charlie Rose that aired Tuesday.
“Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals,” said Turner, 69. “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.”
One way to combat global warming, Turner said, is to stabilize the population.
“We’re too many people; that’s why we have global warming,” he said. “Too many people are using too much stuff.”
LOOK! They already ate part of the page! AHHHHHH!!!!!
They were bankers and venture capitalists and cable network owners – they’re the hungriest!!!!
AHHHHHHH!!! NO – Not the A1 sauce and a big torch!!!! NOOOOOO!!!!!
I’d much rather be served slowly roasted over a medium flame with a peppercorn crust, with a reduction sauce and a mixture of fresh, steamed vegetables, a small caesar salad and an Australian Shiraz. Or Diet Coke.
What would YOU taste like?
