Ted Turner Suggests Child Offsets; Poor People Overcrowding Planet, Obstructing View of His Vacant 2 Million Acres
**Written by Doug Powers
Ted Turner has five kids. If you have more than one, it’s too many — you’re killing the planet.
This guy gets more whacked by the second:
Mr. Turner – a long-time advocate of population control – said the environmental stress on the Earth requires radical solutions, suggesting countries should follow China’s lead in instituting a one-child policy to reduce global population over time. He added that fertility rights could be sold so that poor people could profit from their decision not to reproduce.
Don’t you love how Turner just assumes that it’s on “the poor” to stop having kids? Who has a bigger carbon footprint — poor kids living in small dwellings and walking everywhere, or the children of billionaires who borrow dad’s private jet to go to the prom?
Isn’t there a more polite way for Ted to essentially say “the rich should inherit the earth and the poor should just f-in die off” than this? I’ll give him points though for trying to add a hearty dose of free market capitalism to his push for totalitarian ecocide. Ted will do anything to avoid allowing anybody on this horribly overpopulated planet to live on his two million acres of land!
Last year, Turner, along with Bill Gates, David Rockefeller Jr, Warren Buffett, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg and Oprah “I am not a lesbian!” Winfrey met in Manhattan and decided the world has too many non-billionaires.
I wish I’d have been one of the lowly servants at that meeting, because I would have been happy to tell them how they could have decreased the world’s population by a full seven people before the meeting even ended.
