Interviewed Tuesday for Charlie Rose's PBS show, CNN founder Ted Turner argued that inaction on global warming “will be catastrophic” and those who don't die “will be cannibals.” He also applied moral equivalence in describing Iraqi insurgents as “patriots” who simply “don't like us because we've invaded their country” and so “if the Iraqis were in Washington, D.C., we'd be doing the same thing.” On not taking drastic action to correct global warming:

HE'S SO WRONG!

Only 1/2 of us will be cannibals...the other 1/2 will be lunch.

The man is a paranoid nut job. The earths temp is what it is. It falls. It rises. Big deal. Has little to do with us. Now go buy a suburban and get this economy back on track. Bubba says so. ;)

I just saw a movie 'I am legend' where this was pretty much the theme. Except it was created by man made virus instead of global warming. I wonder if people taste like chicken.

Their muscle looks more like beef ;) I remember anatomy lab at Queen's University in Canada ... looking at all that human flesh was a powerful way to lose your appetite. You'd better eat lunch before class, not after. :headspin:
