Goofy headline of the day: Ted Turner: Global warming could lead to cannibalism

Seeing this headline, my first thought was maybe he was misquoted. Even Ted Turner couldn't be quite that nutty. Well, I was wrong - he is that nutty.
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."
What is really creepy about his assertion is it sounds like he plans to be around as part of the cannibal crowd.

As I said about his fellow Georgian, Jimmy Carter, a couple years ago, it is a shame he has no one in his life that loves him enough to keep him away from a microphone.

Maybe if Turner didnt own so much land, people could spread out.
