8 degrees warmer, and we’re all cannibals…

That’s our fate according to esteem scientist and sociologist, Mr. Ted Turner:

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.”

mmmm-kay.  And he says it like it’s a bad thing… do you know it’s only 52 degree today?  Why, 60 and sunny would feel just great — where do I sign up!?

Admitting that he’s “always suffered from foot-in-the-mouth disease,” Turner added, “I’ve gotten a lot better, though. It’s been a long time since anybody caught me saying something stupid.”

Whoa, Ted.  You might want to read the transcript of what you just said two paragraphs ago.
