    Cape Cod Times (on-line) ^ | Sept. 23, 2005 | Kevin Dennehy
    Even for Greenpeace, a group known for turning high-seas drama into political statement, the foray into the Nantucket Sound wind farm debate has played like perfect theater. Take, for instance, the picture-postcard morning of Aug. 17, when a pair of Greenpeace motorboats surrounded a schooner crammed with wind farm opponents, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr. It was a made-for-TV face-off that, indeed, was reported on the national news that night. But for Greenpeace, a $360 million organization that spends about $3.3 million each year on U.S. campaigns, ongoing efforts for the Cape Wind project transcend interrupting a Kennedy sail. Today,...
  • Andrea Mitchell Applauds RFK Jr.'s 'Impassioned Plea' for Obama to Stop Keystone Pipeline by Fiat

    On Friday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell gave left-wing environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. a platform to denounce the Keystone Pipeline. Kennedy ranted: "The people who are promoting this are the Koch brothers, who spent $2 million trying to hurt him [Obama], the Tea Party people in Congress, and the Republicans who have been trying to block every part of his agenda.
  • RFK Jr. Condemns G. Gordon Liddy as Admirer of Hitler - Kinda Like JFK!

    Given that his grandfather, Joseph P. Kennedy, was one of the most notorious appeasers of the last century, you'd think Robert F. Kennedy Jr. might refrain from maligning anyone else as a Nazi sympathizer. Turns out it wasn't just Grampa Joe with a soft spot for Der Fuhrer -- so did his second eldest son and future president John F. Kennedy during trips to Germany as a young man, according to a new book, "John F. Kennedy -- Among the Germans: Travel Diaries and Letters, 1937-1945." (Audio after the jump) Excerpts from the book were published last month in the...

    Pacific Standard ^ | December 28, 2012 | Alex B. Berezow
    The co-author of a book on partisan science recently examined by Pacific Standard argues that our reviewer was a little too partisan himself. Any book that touches upon politics almost automatically angers half of the American public, regardless of what is written inside of it. It takes a special person—an objective, open-minded and self-critical one—to read and learn from a science book that criticizes people with whom the reader likes and agrees with politically.Recently, Pacific Standard published a review (“Red Science, Blue Science,” January/February 2013) by Wray Herbert, a pop psychology writer,of political writer Chris Mooney’s book The Republican Brain...
  • Conservative Media Are Not the Problem

    12/11/2012 4:54:30 AM PST · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | December 11, 2012 | David Limbaugh
    It is really getting old to hear liberal politicians and pundits complaining about conservative media as being destructive, as if the country would be better off returning to the halcyon days of the monolithic liberal media. That seems to be the view of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who complained about "the right-wing control of the American media, particularly starting with Fox News." During a discussion on HuffPost Live, Kennedy said, "Ninety-five percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing ... so a whole section of our country that's what they're hearing." "Twenty-two percent of Americans," continued Kennedy, "say their...
  • Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: Renewable Energy Is Key to U.S. Growth

    One of the most important issues in this year's election is energy. Our ongoing addiction to Mideast oil leaves us dependent on countries that are often unstable and hostile. Developing our own domestic energy resources and investing in renewable energy lessens this dependence. It also has the potential to create jobs and improve our trade deficit. The two presidential candidates have laid out energy plans that sound similar: both President Obama and Governor Romney want to continue to develop domestic energy resources, including renewable energy, with the aim of making the U.S. less dependent on foreign oil. But according to...

    GOVERNOR Andrew Cuomo's ex-wife, Kerry Kennedy, has been arrested for driving while impaired by drugs after she accidentally struck a tractor-trailer and fled, police say. Kennedy is the seventh of 11 children of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy. State police said she was found on Friday morning behind the wheel of her disabled vehicle on the side of a road in Westchester, just north of New York City. Authorities say emergency services callers reported the car was driving erratically on Interstate 684 and collided with a tractor-trailer in the town of North Castle. The car was damaged and had...

Today, Iceland is 100 percent energy independent, and according to the International Monetary Fund is now the fourth most affluent nation on Earth.

    Las Vegas artist Melissa Henry dreams of a new community that lives in harmony with Mother Nature, a place where the world's greatest thinkers can ponder the world's greatest problems, a model for the city of future. Henry unveiled her dream, and a plea for the money necessary to realize it, Thursday at a fundraising event for Nova Town and Sage Era Resort and Community, a 24-acre community envisioned for the middle of the desert near Jean, about 30 miles south of Las Vegas. About 50 people attended the dinner at the Stirling Club at Turnberry Place to see the...

    Writing in Rolling Stone, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. assures us that the 2004 presidential election was stolen. This popular conspiracy theory has attracted many Democrats, from the clearly unbalanced to John Kerry himself. (Professor and activist Mark Crispin Miller of NYU says Kerry told him he believes the election was stolen.) Kennedy thinks it's fishy that the recorded vote didn't match the exit polls in four battleground states where Kerry was supposedly ahead. He also thinks the Republicans discouraged voters by creating long lines at voting stations in heavily Democratic areas. But bitter surmise isn't proof. And according to a...

    Given to environmentalist lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose fight for "green" energy apparently stops as soon as the results might spoil his view. Kennedy penned an irate New York Times op-ed in December, condemning the proposed building of wind turbines around the Nantucket Sound. While Kennedy criss-crosses the country in his jet-fuel-burning private plane stumping for alternative energy sources, he wants an exception for his own backyard. Greenpeace spokesman Chris Miller was not pleased, saying: "It's about a vision for healthy oceans, not the view from the Kennedy compound."

    Bloated blowhard Michael Moore says George Bush is a racist and intentionally delayed Hurricane Katrina relief because he hates blacks. The remarkably wealthy and obese Moore, who makes more money during lunch than most Americans make in a month, refuses to take some of his scores of millions and mount a rescue and relief effort for the very blacks he claims to love and care for. Self-proclaimed scientist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., says Bush created Hurricane Katrina because he wouldn’t sign off on the Kyoto Accords. He fails to mention that the Accords came about during the Clinton years and...

    WILKES-BARRE -- In a commencement speech Saturday to the graduating class of Wilkes University, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sought to link environmental threats to threats to democracy. In the speech before a crowd of approximately 3,500, the architect of the New York City Watershed Agreement, environmental lawyer and environmental author, spoke critically of the Bush administration. Kennedy said the administration promoted 400 major environmental rollbacks during its last term to deliberately “eviscerate” 30 years of environmental law. The Bush administration’s policies allow coal burning power plants to continue to burn coal, which causes increased instances of asthma and high levels...

    Leading environmental activist and lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gave a lecture to a packed Call Auditorium yesterday entitled "Our Environmental Destiny." As the inaugural speech in the Kaplan Family Distinguished Lecture in Public Service series and organized in part by the Cornell Public Service Center (CPSC), Kennedy sent a strong message concerning recent government actions and the meaning of being an environmentalist, which seemed to inspire some students such as Dana Hall '06. "I was quite impressed," Hall said. "I'm going to join an environmental club now." President Hunter R. Rawlings III gave opening remarks to Kennedy's lecture,...

    'Fool from the East' "Has celebrity environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. taken leave of his senses, or did he ever have any to begin with?" asks Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and editor of "The question arises, given the furor that has broken out in Iowa after Kennedy flew in to inform state residents that — as the Des Moines Register last week quoted him as saying — 'large-scale hog producers are a greater threat to the United States and U.S. democracy than Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network.' "Kennedy offered that bizarre comparison...
