  5. Director has told us not to say anything about this in regards to the LNG plants.

    - Emits carbon dioxide when burned
    - Contains 80-95% methane, a potent greenhouse gas
    - Explosive, potentially dangerous
    - Concentrated sources require long distance transmission and transportation
    - Energy penalties at every stage of production and distribution
    - Requires extensive pipelines to transport over land
    - Stored and distributed under high pressure
    - Requires turbine-generators to produce electricity
    - Liquefied form (LNG) used to transport over water, in tanker ships is potentially very dangerous
    - Energy use competes with use for chemicals and fertilizers

  10. Noble effort, but for nothing . ...it's a done deal . Notice the silence from the Brownsville officials , the port of brownsville , Congressman Vela, Senator Sucio Lucio etc....they will all benefit from this in a dirty way.
