RFK Jr: Fathead
Jeez, his dad was a pretty honorable guy, but Junior didn't get those genes. First it was his idiotic article in Rolling Stone about how the Republicans stole the 2004 election in Ohio. Now get this discussion of weird weather
The fog consolidated and a waterspout hundreds of feet high rose from the white ocean and darted across its surface, landing for a moment on a moored outboard to spin it like a top, moving toward a distant shore where it briefly became a sand funnel, and then diffusing into the atmosphere as it rained down bits of beach on the harbor. That same day, two waterspouts appeared on Long Island Sound.
Those odd climatological phenomena led me to reflect on the rapidly changing weather patterns that are altering the way we live. Lightning storms and strikes have tripled just since the beginning of the decade on Cape Cod.
Of course, the weather is constantly changing; what's not changing is climate. What's it all about? Big Oil, according to Kennedy. And that leads him into a little Palin-bashing, the favorite pastime of the liberal intelligentsia these days:
Meanwhile, Alaska is melting before our eyes; entire villages erode as sea ice vanishes, glaciers are disappearing at a frightening clip, and "dancing forests" caused by disappearing permafrost astonish residents and tourists. Palin had to keep her head buried particularly deep in an oil well to ever have denied that humans are causing climate change. But, as Upton Sinclair pointed out, "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."
