NIMBY And The Kennedys

Are you ready for a new 30 second cartoon ad featuring Ted Kennedy as "Godzilla" to hit the airwaves?

Apparently, Greenpeace thinks it's a good way to get their point across that Ted Kennedy and young Robert Kennedy Jr are hypocrits.

Greenpeace is launching a nationwide TV ad campaign against Kennedy, with spots that portray the Massachusetts Democrat as Godzilla.

The Cape Cod Times reports:

"In the 30-second spot, a cartoon Kennedy looms over the water like a Japanese movie monster, pounding wind turbines as they sprout from the water, and barks, 'I might see them from my mansion on the Cape.'"

And this...

Kennedy's nephew, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is a leading environmentalist who urges Americans to cut back on energy consumption and who blamed Bush environmental policies for Hurricane Katrina.

But he, too, opposes the wind farm in Nantucket Sound - going so far as to argue that it would cause pollution.


Wait, I thought wind engergy was Clean engergy. Hum, guess it only causes pollution in Nantucket.
