Ted Turner: Ban All Plastics

There are outlandish statements and then there are outlandish statements. Ted Turner, aka "The Mouth of the South" (not from the South, of the South) was in the latter category this last week when he spoke before the Rio+20 conference and noted that
"Plastics...are at the top of his priority list to save the world. “I think what we should do about plastics is ban them”"

Psst. Hey Ted. If you ban plastics, then all the electrical wires won't have any insulation and that means nobody will be able to safely plug their TV's into the wall to watch CNN or use their computers to read the CNN website or any other website to read about all the great ideas you have. You might want to rethink a ban on plastics, o.k.?
