What is Ted Turner Doing with All That Land?

 

CNN founder Ted Turner, the largest private landowner in Nebraska and the United States and the nation's largest bison rancher, has a lofty goal.

According to a CNN report, Ted Turner would like to reach 2 million acres nationwide before he dies — about 40,000 acres more than he currently owns.

For years, rumors have been flying that Ted wants to control water rights. However, when asked this questions, Ted rolled his eyes and said, "I've never sold any water rights to anyone and don't intend to."

Turner said his life has changed a great deal since he bought his first Nebraska ranch in 1995. He lost CNN and was divorced from his wife, actress Jane Fonda. He no longer owns the Atlanta Braves baseball club and the Atlanta Hawks basketball team. Turner, is also known for his efforts to help the environment and endangered species.

Turner's name isn't in the headlines as much anymore. His focus has changed from running a media empire to fighting global warming and nuclear weapons and controlling population growth, as well as overseeing his restaurants, known outside Omaha as Ted's Montana Grill. Ted's fortune has declined over the years, in part because of a 1 billion (yes billion) dollar gift to the United Nations.

Turner also owns The Omaha restaurant - featuring Omaha Steaks as well as bison. The restaurant will test demand for more locally obtained food.

Every food item that Americans eat is shipped an average of 1,000 miles, Turner said. By buying locally whenever possible, the Omaha restaurant will reduce greenhouse gases, he said.
