Ted Turner Predicts Record Low Ice Extent This Summer – “Most Serious Problem Man Has Ever Faced”

Turner told reporters on a teleconference today, “They pointed out to us while looking at the glacier that it is receding every year due to global climate change. The temperature here at the high latitudes changes more rapidly than it does in the temperate zones.”

Based on observations to date, the scientists projected that this year the extent of Arctic sea ice will be smaller than it has ever been, even smaller than in the previous record low year of 2007.

Asked what can be done to convince and persuade climate skeptics and deniers to recognize what so many scientists know and are trying to communicate so urgently, Turner said, “That’s a very good question. If we knew the answer to it, we’d already have an energy policy in this country,” he said, referring to his home country of the United States.

“We just have to keep working as we’re doing now to get as much publicity as we can for the facts,” said Turner. “The evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of recognizing climate change.

This is the most serious and complex problem humanity has ever faced, so it’s easy to see how some people don’t get it,” said Turner. “We have to do all we can to convince and persuade the public of what the scientists tell us.”

    Your scientists might be telling you something but the “Science” tells a contradictory story. The most serious and complex problem that mankind has faced has been brought about by the Chicken Little Brigade and their goal of destroying humanity as we know it.

    “Based on observations to date, the scientists projected that this year the extent of Arctic sea ice will be smaller than it has ever been, even smaller than in the previous record low year of 2007.”

    And if that does not happen it means that the sceptics have a point? They should be listened to more often?

    Does anyone know if Ted Turner has made carbon investments? These investments have made Gore frantic so I was just wondering.

    Nothing is happening so people aren’t buying it. That is so anti-intellectual!

    Is it me or is the language changing so rapidly that this passes muster as an acceptable English sentence? (Maybe it’s just a dialect I’m not familiar with.)

    If this year is below 2007’s minimum, I’ll eat my pants.. since I don’t have a hat.. seriously.. this guy is a whacko

    When you marry a fake astronaut after being emotionally abused by daddy dearest, you do get your medicated panties in a bind wanting to be the ever new hero in the massive new mothership shadow of Foxy News.
