Katrina and Kyoto: Robert Kennedy Using Tragedy for Political Posturing
Robert Kennedy Jr.
Breathtaking. Robert Kennedy, Jr. writes a post in today’s HuffPo entitled “For They That Sow the Wind, Shall Reap the Whirlwind.”
Incredible. There are bodies floating in the water in New Orleans and Kennedy rushes to the microphones to blame Katrina on the Bush Administration — because we didn’t sign the Kyoto Protocol:
Now we are all learning what it’s like to reap the whirlwind of fossil fuel dependence which [Haley] Barbour [then-head of the RNC] and his cronies have encouraged. Our destructive addiction has given us a catastrophic war in the Middle East and–now–Katrina is giving our nation a glimpse of the climate chaos we are bequeathing our children.
I guess he must have missed yesterday’s New York Times which reported no link between global warming and hurricanes.
What? If you’re a Kennedy you don’t have to get your facts right?
