While Kerry was out on his yacht...

I thought he was always “fighting” for the environment. How could this happen?

Counties in 31 states fail to meet new federal air-quality standards for ground-level ozone, creating unhealthy conditions for more than 150 million people nationwide, the federal Environmental Protection Agency announced yesterday.

The new ozone designations affect all or part of 474 counties, including all of Massachusetts, and require states to devise plans to reduce the pollutants that rise from car tailpipes and power plants and combine with sunlight to form smog.

We could have reduced emissions in Massachusetts by allowing a wind farm off Nantucket, but all of Kerry’s rich neighbors cried “aesthetic pollution!”
