And No Bacon,Either

“I’m not a real religious person, but I’m somewhat religious. And I’m just wondering if God is telling us he doesn’t want us to drill offshore,” he said. “And right before that we had that coal mine disaster in West Virginia where we lost 29 miners,” as well as repeated mining disasters – “seems like there’s one over there every week” – in China.

“Maybe the Lord’s tired of having the mountains of West Virginia, the tops knocked off of them so they can get more coal. I think maybe we ought to just leave the coal in the ground and go with solar and wind power and geo-thermals where it’s applicable."


And maybe God really wants us to live like the Bible way: in tents, without indoor plumbing, baby back ribs, television or internets.

But that would kinda suck.

Ted Turner suggests we shouldn't take the tops off of mountains in West Virginia to get valuable coal, but he's personally had the top of a mountain removed to "improve his view" from his Montana ranch, i believe.

And if he'd like to go to a world where the benefits of coal and oil power are lacking, Cuba is waiting for him. Hope he doesn't mind freezing to death when he goes to the hospital.
