For some weeks now I've been wondering how the global warming alarmist crowd could ratchet up the rhetoric any further. We've had "earth has a fever", we've had "planet is on fire", we've had flooded coastlands and disappearing islands.
Credit the left's Ted Turner for the latest in hyperbole.
AGW will lead to cannibalism.
This from NewsBusters: "Not doing it will be catastrophic. We'll be eight degrees hottest 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."
Notice that he links the "us" in which he finds himself not with the us who will have died but with the us who will have become cannibals.
But this leads to a world of important questions.
How long can cannibalism last? Is it sustainable? Are scientists looking into the important issue of "Long-term sustainability in a cannibalist-led future"? Are funds being granted? Are graphs being plotted? Are symposiums being planned? Has CBC lined up David Suzuki to do spot promotions?
Meanwhile, if you find yourself in the presence of Ted Turner -- "A man after your own heart" -- I would remind you all to "Keep Your Eyes On Your Thighs".
It's enough to make you want to swear off meat.
And that's the way the non-vegetarian meat-eating Ball bounces.
