Let's hope Bobby Kennedy Jr. was trying to be funny by using Pat Robertson's reasoning and writing that Governor Haley Barbour was responsible for the direct hit Missisippi took from Hurricane Katrina. I am giving him the benefit of the doubt on this because if he truly believes this about Haley Barbour, then what sins did his family commit to bring on all the personal tragedy they have suffered?
Bobby also happens to be a recovering heroine addict. Knowing firsthand the dark belly of addictions like he must, it is insensitive and incorrect for him to say we have a "destructive addiction" to fossil fuels.
UPDATE: James Glassman rebuts Bobby's argument. Not the biblical one but the global-warming-caused-Katrina argument.
