When Leftists Predict Global Warming Scenarios
By: Jim Byrd
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chief prosecuting attorney for the advocacy group Riverkeeper, an environmental organization, darts around the world on private jets apprising people how to conduct their lives for the sake of the Earth. Not flying around the globe on private jets is at the top of that list.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is also an irrational and run-of-the-mill incoherent conspiracy theorist. He believes that George W. Bush stole the presidential election in 2004. Not the 2000 election against Al Gore, but against John Kerry in 2004. He stated, “After carefully examining the evidence, I’ve become convinced that the president’s party mounted a massive, coordinated campaign to subvert the will of the people in 2004.”
He is to the science of vaccines as Al Gore is to the science of meteorology. Kennedy, like Gore, twists, bends, molds, contorts, then lies about science to fit his agenda.
Kennedy has attributed almost every conceivable malady of mankind to vaccines. Vaccines, who needs them? Certainly not the hundreds of millions of people who have been inoculated against chickenpox, diphtheria, hepatitis, measles, mumps, tetanus, and last but not least, polio. Question: Would Kennedy’s fellow Leftist, FDR, have been opposed to vaccines also, especially the polio vaccine?
The best Kennedy could come up with regarding George Bush’s 2004 stealing of the election were vague, shadowy, and unsubstantiated accusations. Nothing more. But when an organization that operates as a crime syndicate, which has either been indicted or is being investigated for voter fraud spanning multiple states, commits continuous felonies of voter fraud for the Democratic Party, Kennedy has this to say:
Now that the worst snowstorm to hit Washington D.C. in the past 90 years has completely shut the city down this past week, including the federal government, there is no better time than the present to reminiscence about Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamenting about the lack of winter weather in Washington, D.C. a mere 15 months ago. Kennedy, possessing the title “resolute defender of the planet,” self titled, of course, penned his anecdotal observations– as are most man-made global warming facts– about the disappearance of winter weather in D.C. forever. Of course American corporations are to blame.
In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today’s anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don’t own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.
In those days, I recall my uncle, President Kennedy, standing erect as he rode a toboggan in his top coat, never faltering until he slid into the boxwood at the bottom of the hill. Once, my father, Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, brought a delegation of visiting Eskimos home from the Justice Department for lunch at our house. They spent the afternoon building a great igloo in the deep snow in our backyard. My brothers and sisters played in the structure for several weeks before it began to melt. On weekend afternoons, we commonly joined hundreds of Georgetown residents for ice skating on Washington’s C&O Canal, which these days rarely freezes enough to safely skate.
Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil and its carbon cronies continue to pour money into think tanks whose purpose is to deceive the American public into believing that global warming is a fantasy.
These Leftist activists are much like chameleons. They bounce around from one populist cause to another, changing their colors to suit their environment, and generally for profit. But as with Kennedy and Gore, beneath the veneer of their changing colors is nothing but a cesspool of counterfeit and fabricated credentials, and good intentions that, coincidently, are as passionate as the money involved.
