Environmentalist” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Takes Pot Shots, claiming Mississippi and Louisiana were “Reaping the Whirlwind” of the winds their leaders had sown. Well, well, deep in the bluest of the blue states, Massachusetts, environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy is being pistol whipped by his own for his outrageous explanation for Hurricane Katrina’s ferocious attack on the deep red states. The Boston Herald chides him with a piece entitled “Critics fiddle as Gulf Coast drowns“.
Boston Herald, Thursday, September 1, 2005
It must be nice for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to have a dry, air-conditioned office in which to pen a navel-gazing think piece blaming Republicans for the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. As dead bodies floated in the flood waters of Louisiana and Mississippi and tens of thousands of people sat in humid shelters wondering how to piece their lives back together, or just hoping for a drink of water – Kennedy saw an opportunity to wax eloquent about . . . global warming. And the environmental activist took it one shameful step further blaming Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and his views on global warming for, essentially, bringing the hurricane down on his own people.
Kerfuffles is not going to let him go down easy, either. Mr. Environmentalist Kennedy wrote that hypocritical screed on a computer in an air conditioned office with electricity. If this was almost anywhere in the northeastern United States, as suspected, he was using energy created from the burning of coal. Yes coal, which, according to Kennedy and his fellow global warming activists, is responsible for causing global warming and Hurricane Katrina.
