Minister of Global Warming Ted Turner Gets It Slightly Wrong

By Debbie Schlussel
If you’re going to push a fantastic horror story a/k/a phony theory of science, at least get your stories straight.
That’s advice best given to one of the wealthiest, most hypocritical pimps of the “Global Warming” fantasy–billionaire Christian-hater Ted Turner.
Last week, not coincidentally on April Fool’s Day, in an interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose, the CNN founder not only made the absurd comparison of fighting “Global Warming” with fighting the Nazis in World War II, but he presented a horror story to which even the most dyed-in-the-wool “Global Warming” scientists don’t subscribe:

Total Bunk:

Ted Turner’s Claim of Hannibal Lecters Roaming the Streets

TURNER: We have to mobilize the same way we did when we entered World War II in 1941. We have to fully mobilize everything we have and put it into changing the energy system over, and not just here in the United States, but all over the world. . . . not doing it will be catastrophic. We’ll . . . be eight degrees hotter in 10 – not 10, but in 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 will be no more corn growing. . . . we’ve got to stabilize the population.
ROSE: So what is wrong with the population? . . .
TURNER: We’re too many people. That’s why we have global warming. We have global warming because too many people are using too much stuff. If there were less people, they’d be using less stuff. . . . we’ve got to stabilize population. On a voluntary basis, everybody in the world has got to pledge to themselves that one or two children is it.

Reality check: Scientists pushing the “Global Warming” theory and agenda claim that temperatures will rise by a minute percentage each century. National Academy of Sciences proponents of Global Warming claim that the the last century was the warmest in 400 years because of

the globally averaged warming of about 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.6 degrees Celsius) that instruments have recorded during the last century.

Those scientists claim that alleged “warming” will continue at this rate, NOT Ted Turner’s sky-is-falling horror rate.
Global Warming scientists say temperatures have risen by a tenth of a degree every year since 1977 in such places as the Arctic Circle. In other locations–such as in the U.S. Midwest, we’ve actually had the coldest winter in decades–so the average temperature has slightly fallen.
While Ted Turner might be looking forward to the days of “Braised Thigh of Homosapien” on his dinner plate at the Sudanese Supper Club (or is that the Somalian one?) while the entire U.S. is a ghost town, it’s not coming anytime soon. . . if ever.
So much money, so few brain cells. Having sex with Hanoi Jane clearly atrophies what’s inside your noggin.

If Liberals are so gunhoe on fighting global warming and population control here are 3 things they can start doing…
Liberal’s Global Warming Fight —
They can use the Greyhound buses rather than using their persanal jets, which uses an enormous amount of fuel. Greyhound can easily accommodate their traveling entourage and fans. They will also have an opportunity to mingle with their fans, up close and personal!
2. Global Warmists Fight Against Population Control
Following the current fashion of “Botox Parties”, They can have their own version called “Sterilization Parties”. This will allow their closest supporters and concert-goers to support them in their fight against population control. One-stop shopping — Listen to their entertainment while fighting the dreaded population explosion!!
3. A Quicker Solution to Population Control!
At the time of your ticket purchase, you have the once in a lifetime opportunity to enter a special lottery drawing. Winners will receive the ultimate supporting gift of martrydom for population control by particpating in the “Euthanasia Celebration”!!
Hopefully, these suggestions will afford Liberals an opportunity to be recognized as a humanitarian contributor to the dreaded fight against global warming and population control. I are confident that their staunchest entertainment-industry supporters will be joining them in participating and be part of these monumental opportunities. We may even have some lucky “winners” among that celebrity group!!

This guy should lay off the sauce before he gets on the air. Oh. And learn about an issue before you talk. Moron.

It seems the only thing Global Warming has affected is Ted’s brain. Apparently all the worlds glaciers during this threat of Global Warming have become larger. Curious hey Teddy. Check it out at http://www.iceagenow.com/Growing_Glaciers.htm

Isn’t Ted Turner one of the largest ranchers in the country.. and isn’t he known for raising buffalos? Maybe if he didn’t charge so much at his Ted’s Montana Grill all the hugnry people could eat the buffalos and not each other.

Now that the man made Global Warming theory is being increasingly being exposed as nothing but a hoax based on junk science, will Americans demand that these ridiculous global warming mandates be repealed?
The ethanol mandates that GWB recently signed into law are resulting in Global Food shortages and famine in some third world countries. Because of the ethanol fuel mandates alone, Food prices have increased by 37% last year because the price of corn that is used to make ethanol has tripled in price.
A little more than 40 percent of the corn grown in the country goes to feeding livestock, so when corn prices go up, the prices of livestock and byproducts follow. The energy bill passed in December by the U.S. Congress will require 15 billion more gallons of ethanol from corn, driving up not just the cost of meat, dairy products and eggs, but of anything containing high fructose corn syrup.
Last year in California, they mandated tiered electricity billing because of ìGlobal Warmingî that resulted in electricity bills that doubled and tripled, in some cases forced people to stop using their air conditioning. They simply could not pay the bill!
Congress has capped and virtually stopped domestic oil production using Global Warming as the latest excuse to curtail production. Now we are looking at 100 a barrel crude oil prices caused by limiting the supply of oil in the name environmentalism or Global Warming.
Frankly, if this insanity is not stopped soon, our economy is not only going suffer we may have a ì1929 type depressionî that many economists are warning us about.
It will have nothing to due will the rise of the temperature of the Earth but the hysterical over reaction of our Political Elite that believe in the Man Made Global Warming theory.
