Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at Live Earth yesterday spoke truth to power in this fantabulous speech (video above).
Kennedy challenged the notion that environmental advocacy was in contradiction to sound economic policy. He charged that "the oil industry and the coal industry and their indentured servants in the political process" making the claim were presenting "a false choice."
Among his exhortations was a call to action to respond to environmental disinformation by holding advertisers who support the disinfo operatives accountable.
"The next time you see John Stossel or Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity --- these flat-earthers, these corporate toadies, lying to you, lying to the American public, and telling you that global warming doesn't exist," Kennedy said, "you send an email to their advertisers and tell them that you are not going to buy their products anymore."
