Ted Kennedy Wants Windmills Killed

I once heard on 'Rush' that Teddy was all for ridding ourselves of dependance of mideastern oil, but didn't want us to drill in Alaska, or create any offshore drilling. He also didn't want to see the windmills anywhere near his summer home, but didn't mind them being somewhere else (do as I say, not as I do). Here's another story.....

Self-proclaimed alternative energy proponent Sen. Ted Kennedy has strongly opposed an environmentally friendly "wind farm" off the coast of Massachusetts - and now it appears Kennedy will have his way.

The Cape Wind Project would erect 130 windmills in Nantucket Sound and could provide three-fourths of the power needed by Cape Cod and nearby islands, which is now largely supplied by coal-fired plants.

But the project had a powerful enemy in Sen. Kennedy, who has voiced strong support for alternative energy projects - as long as they are not in his backyard.

And let me introduce you to Robert Kennedy who wants us all to drive battery operated cars (do as I say, not as I do) but flys around (not on government busniss, but just for fun) in his own jet that would burn enough fuel(in one trip to France) that the average person uses in a lifetime.

"The problem was not aesthetic; the Kennedys wouldn't be able to actually see the turbines from their home. Instead Robert Kennedy Jr., who had been beating the drum for alternative sources of energy for more than a decade, complained that the project would be built in one of the family's favorite sailing and yachting areas."
