Ted Turner sez: Quit breeding!

Ah Ted, always good for an inane quote. Apparently he recently called for a global version of the infamous Chinese "One Child" policy that has led to an untold number of abortions especially of baby girls as well as infanticide.

Climate change and population control can make for a politically explosive mix, as media mogul Ted Turner demonstrated Sunday when he urged world leaders to institute a global one-child policy to save the Earth’s environment.
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.

I wonder who is going to pony up the money to pay women in Third World countries to not bear children? Him? Perhaps he will pay for them to have abortions if they do become pregnant. The underlying message here is that poor, non-Caucasian people, should be bribed to not breed. On the bright side, no one really cares what Ted Turner thinks.
