Ted Turner on Charlie Rose

If you didn’t think Ted Turner was the real thing, an honest-to-god drunken billionaire eccentric in the flesh, you need look no further than this Charlie Rose interview which aired last week.  The two giants of their respective fields engage on pretty controversial stuff like peak oil, famine, and the rise of China.  It’s actually quite entertaining, Turner is truly a caricature of himself at this point, and he comes off as a real nut.  It’s great.  Fielding a question about the consequences of unchecked global warming he remarks, “Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals.”  I can’t embed the flash on wordpress, but you can stream or download the interview here
