The Hollywood Reporter recently interviewed Ted Turner on a variety of topics. One of them was on the Tea Party movement. Turner expressed frustration that so many Tea Party members “say that global warming is a hoax.”
What’s Turner doing to fight “global warming?” He drives a Prius.
He also has 28 properties, including 14 ranches with 55,000 bison grazing on them.
He travels hundreds of thousands of miles each year in his private jet. Wonder what his carbon footprint looks like? It must be as large as Al Gore’s.
In 2008, Ted Turner revealed the depth of his ignorance about climate change on the Charlie Rose Show, where he made this comment: “Not doing it [dealing with global warming] 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.”
