RFK Jr: "Enviro-predator"

Ah, yes, someone who has a famous name believes all that spews forth from them is more to be believed than the truth.
Tech Central Station's James Glassman published an article today decrying the wacko environmentalists pronouncements about the Hurricane and its cause. It's all global warming! "That is why the response of environmental extremists fills me with what only can be called disgust. They have decided to exploit the death and devastation to win support for the failed Kyoto Protocol, which requires massive cutbacks in energy use to reduce, by a few tenths of a degree, surface warming projected 100 years from now."
"Katrina has nothing to do with global warming. Nothing. It has everything to do with the immense forces of nature that have been unleashed many, many times before and the inability of humans, even the most brilliant engineers, to tame these forces."
One of these disgusting people who is trying to exploit this catastrophe is Robert Kennedy Jr.
RFK Jr (Really F*****dup Kennedy) also posted about the hurricane. On The Slut in Town Post, or whatever the nut calls it. Anyway, it's all Bush's fault you see, he listened to Gov Barbour of Mississippi. He really wanted to destroy his state and cause all that suffering, because he loves big oil. "Now we are all learning what it's like to reap the whirlwind of fossil fuel dependence which Barbour 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." Yup, oil is the cause of everything. Let's stop using it! That'll show that oil we're not afraid of it!
I think it's genetic or something. The further you get along a famous family tree, the more insane the members become. I think we're seeing that here. Cabots and Lowells I guess.
There are a few more envirodementalists Glassman talks about. "Or consider Jurgen Tritten, Germany's environmental minister, in an op-ed in the Frankfurter Rundschau...He goes on, 'There is only one possible route of action. Greenhouse gases have to be radically reduced, and it has to happen worldwide.' In other words, thanks to Katrina, we'll finally get Kyoto enforced. (He might start at home, by the way. Europe is not anywhere close to reducing CO2 to Kyoto standards. In fact, the U.S. is doing much better than many Kyoto ratifiers.)" Ain't that the truth. All this Euroblather while they do nothing.
"Ross Gelbspan, in a particularly egregious, almost giddy piece in the Boston Globe that was reprinted in the International Herald Tribune, wrote that the hurricane was 'nicknamed Katrina by the National Weather Service Katrina, [but] its real name was global warming.' He also finds global warming responsible for droughts in the Midwest, strong winds in Scandinavia and heavy rain in Dubai. The reason for all this devastation, of course, is that the Bush Administration is controlled by coal and oil interests."
"And the Independent, a widely read British newspaper, reported today that 'Sir David King, the British Government's chief scientific adviser, has warned that global warming may be responsible for the devastation reaped by Hurricane Katrina.' King contended that 'the increased intensity of hurricanes is associated with global warming.'"
Oh, but sorry, it looks like their little balloon was burst by their own side. The Enemy Press New York Times undercut their positions in an article. Glassman quoted them, "'Because hurricanes form over warm ocean water, it is easy to assume that the recent rise in their number and ferocity is because of global warming. But that is not the case, scientists say. Instead, the severity of hurricane seasons changes with cycles of temperatures of several decades in the Atlantic Ocean. The recent onslaught 'is very much natural,' said William M. Gray, a professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University who issues forecasts for the hurricane season.'"
See, the environmentaloons can't even get their story straight and they expect us to sign on to the Kyoto protocol, which by the way nearly every signatory will withdraw from in a few years? Nope. Deluded. Or demented. The leftist environmentalists either are very stupid, which they are not, or they are engaging in sinister activity designed to undercut the economic power of the US. They want to leave us to the tender mercies of those who hate us. Sorry Junior, I'll pass.
