Robert Kennedy Jr said today, “Clean coal is a dirty lie.” The environmentalist added that President Barack Obama and other politicians who commit taxpayer money to develop it are “indentured servants” of the coal industry.
President Obama proposed $3.4 billion in stimulus legislation to fund continued research on “clean coal” projects.
But Kennedy can’t be in too much trouble with Obama. His uncle gave Obama’s kids their dog, “Bo,” and Kennedy and Obama have a mutual friend: Hugo Chavez.
Chavez sends free gas and heating oil to Kennedy’s social action group to allow poor people to heat their homes in New England. Citco is the state oil company of venezuela and an armof the Chavez regime these days.
Obama of course also considers Chavez a pal.
They are in the same book club.

“Clean coal is like healthy cigarettes, it does not exist,” says former Vice President Al Gore.
Now Gore could be in trouble.
