RFK Jr. Nixes Wind Farm Near Kennedy Compound

`Uber environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is trying to put the kibosh on plans to build the kind of wind-farm he regularly touts as an environmentally sound alternative to fossil fuels, saying it would block views of Nantucket Sound from Cape Cod – which just happens to be home to the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis port.

In an op-ed published Friday by the New York Times, the hyper-green Kennedy tried to explain the contradiction:

“As an environmentalist, I support wind power, including wind power on the high seas. I am also involved in siting wind farms in appropriate landscapes, of which there are many.” [..]

The global warming crusader complains that the turbines will pollute the views from places like “Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket” – some of the Kennedy family’s favorite haunts.’
