Senator Kennedy Pollutes Nantucket Sound

Kennedy Dumps Diesel

What is it about water and Senator Ted Kennedy? True to form, he again is guilty of dumping his problems into the cold embrace of the sea. Thankfully and unlike his past indiscretions, this time there was a camera present to capture his behavior.

Senator Kennedy has fought against the Cape Wind project on Nantucket Sound. He has fought against the US drilling for it’s own oil. He has voted against building refineries and every other energy strategy that would make the US less reliant on foreign energy sources all for the sake of the environment.

Senator Ted Kennedy has called Nantucket Sound “a national treasure.” We see how much he respects a national treasure as the photo captures him dumping diesel fuel from the bilge of his yacht Mya into the same waters he claims to cherish.

A photographer captured this shot the day of the 2002 Figawi Race. Shocked at the sight, he rowed his dingy toward the Mya. There, he witnessed a diesel slick coming from Mya which was clear and spreading. He asked the crewman what he was doing and was told that diesel had gotten into the bilge and was ordered to dump it.

When reminded that he was moored in coastal waters near shellfish beds and people swimming, the crewman replied, “whatever.”

As you pay $3, $4 or $5 dollars a gallon at the pump, please remember the responsibility of Senator Kennedy in all of this. You may also want to question his so-called caring for the environment while selfishly pushing his own personal agendas.

The people of Massachusetts have a lot to answer for.

  1. I saw something on FNC about these people in Mass opposing the wind project. These people have a lot of audacity to not want it in their own backyard, but ok with it elsewhere with the commoners.

  2. Hi Ben

    In the predictable pattern of the Kennedy clan and Massachusetts elite, they shout how wonderful alternative energy sources are except when it inconveniences them.

    Instead of drilling for our own oil Kennedy had rather export wealth, power, and place our future in the not-so merciful hands of ruthless dictators.

    Kennedy and politicians like him are a disgrace. They are the first to blame the petroleum companies for high gas prices when it’s their own reckless environmental polices that are to blame.
