Article copyYou may remember how I was telling you recently about "the unsolvable great dilemma that comes with the Global Warming Prophecy", and if you don't, well you can pretty much go and read it because I'm not going to keep quoting my own self all the time like that. It smells a lot like the common French self-delusion of grandeur. Very disturbing.
Anyway, back to the point: CNN founder Ted Turner just picked his side of the dilemma, and schedules the End of the World for tomorrow. In so doing, he also demonstrates a stunning ignorance of basic human activities, like that 10,000 years old hobby of us, agriculture:
Not doing it [i.e. "taking drastic action to 'correct' global warming" — Ed] 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.
The notion that "none of the crops will grow" with a few degrees more, and more importantly that the most ingenious crop-growing species in History (that's us) couldn't do anything about it anyway, will come as a surprise to anybody but media old farts and other urbanites who forgot about a good day's work in the field, if they ever had one in the first place.
Having said that, I'm not too big on carrots, vegetables and other cabbage, and I really can't wait for cannibalism.
My only concern is that considering my immoderate taste for Indian/Pakistani and Chinese cuisine, I could face charges of racism if I indulge in ethnic food.
But we'll cross that bridge when we'll get there — Ted Turner says 10 years, 40 tops.
