Last week, media mogul Ted Turner spoke to reporters via a telephone conference held by his United Nations Foundation on the Norwegian island of Svalbard.
Responding to a question by reporter Sunny Lewis of the Environment News Service about how to change the minds of climate change skeptics, Turner said climate change is “probably the most serious — and, in all fairness, the most complex–problem that humanity has ever faced.”
Turner also stated his disappointment in the fact that the United States has never had comprehensive energy policy to help govern consumption and production.
Referring to climate change skeptics, Turner added: ”It’s really easy to understand how some people don’t get it because it’s so complex and complicated. But that doesn’t mean we have to do, all of us, do what we can to try to convince people to do the right thing and then motivate them to take the action.”
