RFK Jr. Loses His Mind
Today while cruising blogs I found Arriana Huffington's "The Huffington
Post" and Robert Kennedy Jr.'s post blaming Hurricane Katrina on
Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and his opposition to the Kyoto Protocol.
RFK, you are kidding, right?
Even if Kyoto had been approved by the US in 1997, it would still be
SEVEN YEARS from being fully in force (2012 is the target date).
It would require only "developed countries" to reduce their emissions by
5.2%, but exempts Brazil, India and China, the three biggest growing
economies, with their lax at best environmental standards.
Japan and Canada, two of the biggest cheerleaders for the pact have both
said that they know they can't reduce their levels to 6% below 1990
levels as required by the 2012 target date. Canada doesn't even have a
plan, and has INCREASED emmissions by 20% since 1990!
My true problem is it seems RFK jr. isnt' kidding, he actually believes
that this pact would have made the difference, writing "In 1998,
Republican icon Pat Robertson warned that hurricanes were likely to hit
communities that offended God. Perhaps it was Barbour’s memo that caused
Katrina, at the last moment, to spare New Orleans and save its worst
flailings for the Mississippi coast."
Bobby, you sound like you could use some help. Hopefully after some
thought you'll apologize to Mr. Barbour. BTW, how much have you given
the Red Cross to help with disaster relief? Or is that too passe for
your tastes, since the folks of Mississippi voted in Mr. Barbour, maybe
you think they deserve what they got?
