Biography

RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

A bare faced lie from Bob Kerrey about cap and trade

Bob Kerrey is desperately trying to backtrack on his previous active support for cap-and-trade and his service on the board of the leftist green fringe group called the National Resources Defense Council.

But unfortunately, there's a record. In 2009 he said, with respect to cap and trade.

When I talk to members of the Senate, that's what I say. If you vote in the negative, you will likewise, the older you get, you will look back on that negative vote and you will be ashamed of that vote.
Now he says
he never lobbied on behalf of the bill. He said he had been asked by the Natural Resources Defense Council to try to persuade about 10 lawmakers in the Senate to support the bill, but he never made those calls
So he lied on Friday, or he lied in 2009. There is no other alternative. Kudos to Robynn Tysver of the OWH for catching this.
