Ted Turner: Global Warming Will Cause Mass Cannibalism

The year 2040 will find the world's crops dead, most of the people in a similar state of decay, and those few left alive will be cannibals, according to a prediction from Ted Turner, founder of Turner Broadcasting and CNN.

Ted is now a clairvoyant? I'm sure he's saying this with the hopes that something he owns will benefit from it. I think the corn ethanol scam will have a bigger impact on the food supply than global warming.

Yeah, sounds to me like he's saying "if global warming causes a food shortage, remember we can EAT PEOPLE!" So, plan your nutrition now...

Or he's just saying that he has always gotten what he's wanted, so if global warming continues, be prepared to become his next meal Smile

Ted Turner sorry for criticizing religion, partners with churches in malaria fight

Ted Turner, who once called Christianity a "religion for losers," launched a $200 million partnership Tuesday with Lutherans and Methodists to fight malaria in Africa, apologizing for his past criticism of religion and calling faith a "bright spot" in the world.

Turner, 69, said he had only made a few disparaging comments a long time ago and that he is "always developing" his thinking as he grows older.

"I regret anything I said about religion that was negative," he told The Associated Press ahead of a news conference announcing the anti-malaria program.

In the 1980s, the CNN founder criticized Christianity, wrote his own version of the Ten Commandments and in 2001 asked employees who commemorated Ash Wednesday whether they were "Jesus freaks," saying they should work for Fox. He apologized at the time.

Turner now says he does not consider himself agnostic or atheist, as he had sometimes described himself previously. He prays for sick friends because "it doesn't hurt," he said, and maintains several churches on his properties for employees and others who live nearby.

"As I get older, you know, I get more, you know, more tolerant," Turner said at the news conference. He has attended the churches a few times, but isn't a regular.

On Tuesday, Turner's United Nations Foundation, which he started in 1997 with a $1 billion donation, launched the anti-malaria project with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and the United Methodist Church. The Protestant groups have been working overseas to fight poverty and prevent disease for more than a century.


Religion is one of the bright spots as far as I'm concerned, even though there are some areas, like everything else, where they've gone over the top a little, in my opinion," Turner said. "But I'm sure God, wherever he is, wants to see us get along with one another and love one another."

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also provided a $10 million grant that will help promote the campaign in churches. The Protestant groups together have more than 15 million U.S. members.

Turner's foundation had been working with many groups, including the Methodists, on the Nothing But Nets campaign, which provides insecticide-treated bed nets in needy communities. Lutheran World Relief also had been helping malaria-infected cities and villages.

But their new joint project has an even more ambitious goal: to stop deaths from malaria. The disease kills more than 1 million people a year mostly women and children under the age of 5 in Africa.

The United Methodist Church will raise $100 million for the project. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, with their humanitarian arm Lutheran World Relief, will raise between $75 million and $100 million.

"This will be the largest campaign of its type ever for Lutherans," said the Rev. John Nunes, president and chief executive of Lutheran World Relief. Texas Bishop Janice Huie, president of the Methodist Council of Bishops, said the money will be raised over several years.

The two denominations were chosen because of their overseas experience and their ability to advocate for the project in the U.S., said Elizabeth Gore, the foundation's executive director for global alliances. The money will be used for prevention, treatment and improving health care in areas at risk for the disease through the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Turner said he was familiar with Methodist and Lutheran churches, praising them for preaching "the brotherhood of man."

He said he has read the Bible "cover to cover twice" even though some of it is "pretty tedious" and considered becoming a missionary as a boy. But he rejected religion after his younger sister died from a form of lupus when they were both young.

Turner still has not completely embraced religion.

He said he continues to subscribe to his alternative commandments, which he called the "Ten Voluntary Initiatives." They include caring for people and the earth, promising not to have more than two children and contributing to the less fortunate.

Nunes said that while the new anti-malaria project will address the underlying poverty that contributes to the spread of the disease, it will not involve distributing contraception.

"The religious community is huge and has a very good reputation for being able to mobilize resources," Turner said. "Why not use them and be thankful?"

Someone help me... I guess I'm not following the "new world order" of livestock logic... you "hefties" just keep on grazing. Remember what confuse-us say... slender gazelle can outrun the fierce rhino.
