"Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals," said Turner, 69. "Civilization will have broken down. The few people left will be living in a failed state like Somalia or Sudan and living conditions will be intolerable."

One way to combat global warming, Turner said, is to stabilize the population.</div></div>

Does anyone believe these global warming kooks anymore?

The global warming hysteria is not about protecting our environment.

I believe we really don't know what is going on.

I agree. And I think the real message we need to hear about Global Warming/Climate Change is that we should be using our intelligence and technologies to minimize our impact and the potential influence we might have on making things worse than they need to be.

Which is why signing the Koyoto Treaty is incredibly naive and gullible.

The Kyoto Treaty is based on the presumption Global Warming is an unassailable fact.
