Ted Turner Says Global Warming Will Increase Cannibalism

turnerWhile we support Ted Turner’s enthusiasm for doing anything and everything to avert Global Warming, we certainly wish that he would communicate that effort a bit more delicately.

In an interview Tuesday for Charlie Rose’s PBS show, the CNN founder said that one of the consequences of Global Warming will be mass cannibalism. From the interview,

“Not doing it will be catastrophic. We’ll be eight degrees hotter in ten, not ten but 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’ll be no more corn grown. Not doing it is suicide.”

Of course, those opposed to the very idea of climate change science are jumping all over these comments as proof of “crazy global warming zealots”. Obviously, Turner’s thoughts are on the extreme side — but not addressing the issue of climate change could very well have very real consequences in terms of food, health, and habitat. I’m not sure if we’ll all develop a taste for each other, but life will be more difficult.

So please Ted, stop.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
