Business Mogul Ted Turner
Ted Turner, one of the most profitable businessmen in America, isn't afraid of an economic depression or plummeting stock prices. He says nuclear weapons top his list of fears.

"I think the most dangerous thing is the nuclear arsenals of Russia and the United States and the other nuclear countries," Ted says. "I think we need total nuclear disarmament as quickly as possible to avoid either an accident or a madman getting control of one of the buttons that would cause the extinction of humanity."
