Ted Turner Hates America, and Science

Via Newsbusters, which has the video, Ted Turner appeared on the Charlie Rose show with this global warming prediction:
What an unbelievable crank. But the most disturbing bit is the talk of 'stabilizing' populations. That means you don't get to have babies because Mr. Turner, as the largest land owner in the United States, has decided we don't have enough resources for your family and his environmental conscience. Also, while the rest of us are cannibals, as the owner of 40,000 head of bison, the largest herd in the United States, I think Turner will be eating pretty well. And say, don't I recall reading something about how cattle produce more greenhouse emissions than cars? Surely bison are carbon neutral though...
He also praised Iraqi insurgents as "patriotic"--in fairness, I'm not sure he knows what the word means after a ten year marriage to Jane Fonda.
