Hunker down

We're all going to be dying in 30-40 years because of global warming, and those that aren't dying will be cannibals, or so says Ted Turner: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB120770387977600195.html?mod=djemEditorialPage.

You see, according to Red Ted, we all spend too much (he has a point there), and consume too much and we have too many kids. I have to say, I just love it when the super rich, who possess more than most of us will ever have in our lifetimes, tell us that we plebeians have too much.

On a voluntary basis, everybody in the world has got to pledge to themselves that one or two children is it.

Apparently he has five children through three wives. Thanks for setting the example!

I found a summary of the IPCC report and there is a chart near the bottom. I'm not sure what the 2000 constant means, but they made predictions using six different models. The best scenario is a 3.2 degree rise and the worst is a 7.2 degree rise and this will happen by the year 2090! Not an 8 degree increase in 10, 30, 40 years or whatever other number Ted Turner wants to use.
