Skip to comments.Ted Turner's Next Prophecy: Food Riots 'Going to be More Commonplace'
Posted on 04/25/2008 2:03:40 PM PDT by Rufus2007
The current food shortage is going to get worse before it gets better at least thats the way the founder of CNN sees it.
Ted Turner was interviewed by CNBCs Bob Pisani on the April 25 Closing Bell. He addressed the recent food shortages causing rationing and riots all over the globe and said its just a sign of things to come.
There are a lot of different problems being caused by an ever-increasing number of people in a finite-sized world, Turner said. The resources of the planet just cant keep up with the demand and Im afraid this going to be more commonplace. Im afraid were just seeing the tip of the iceberg. Its very complicated I do want to say.

Where’s that Bird-Flu pandemic when we need it?
So off yourself, Ted. It's the least you can do.
Does that mean no more “Ted’s Montana Grill”?
I, for one, do not think his opinion is important.....
I'm Ted Turner and I live on a buffalo farm.
Will liberals like Ted blame the food riots on George W. Bush? Will the blame be with Republicans for not being compassionate enough to the starving people in the world?
I hate to agree with this character... but I think he is right on this one. And he is safe with all those buffalo burgers roaming around in Montana.
“There are a lot of different problems being caused by an ever-increasing number of liberal policies from finite-sized intellects,” Turner should have said. “The resources of the planet just can’t be used to the betterment of mankind and I’m afraid this is getting more commonplace. We’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg. Liberals make things very complicated... much more so than they should be.”

My Equity/Debt ratio is inversely proportional to the CNBC Communist/Conservative talking head ratio.........for the last 10 years it’s worked like a charm!
Oh, and if Ted Turner (or his wife Hanoi Jane) gets on CNBC, it’s a 10% Equity kicker!
I’m not sure it’s even that. As far as I can tell it’s down to corruption in Haiti, protectionism in Asia and scare headlines that would be over the top if Zombies were erupting out of the ground.
IMO there’s still loads more food than we can eat, even with the ethanol “Oil from Food” scandal.
Rolleyes.....a Commie like him should know since they are doing everything in their power to create that very senario...
Funny, I remember in the 70’s and 80’s the food lines around the block in the USSR...and Reagan using the Mujahiddeen to attack the USSR in Afghanistan...
And they tried to tell us the Cold War ended with the fall of the Soviets...right...:/
“problems being caused by an ever-increasing number of people in a finite-sized world”
Apparently Ted has never flown in an airplane.
Well Ted....maybe you can talk all your commie pals into taking the kool aide express.....that would be a good start.......
This comment from the man who personally owns more acreage than any other single owner in the USA. He keeps taking land out of food production, and then he predicts riots.
What a maroon...even before he married Hanoi Jane.
Yes it's very easy to understand the root cause as well.
Our politicians refuse to let us drill for oil or build refineries and then they compound that insanity with the demand that we burn our food for fuel instead of the oil they won't let us drill for.
Consequently, the price for both oil and food is going through the roof. What a great plan!
Ted and his pals will be sitting out the revolution/holacaust/Armageddon on their ranches in Paraguay.
Besides, most of them are old enough that they figure they aren’t going to have be around for the aftermath, anyway.
