Danger of LNG shipping in B.C..
DANGER TO THE COMMUNITY
Excellent factual presentation to
West Vancouver Council
The river transportation of jet fuel, coal and LNG as proposed on the Fraser River is completely ILLEGAL in the United States due to ships being close to human habitation, as well as potential environmental danger.
legal or not, is in our view an irrelevant discussion if peoples lives and the environment are threatened.
One gallon of LNG for example, spilled on the waterway, can explode with enough force to cause the ship to explode, and according to the Environmental Protection Agency, produce a blast radius of over 3 miles ( 5 kilometres ) where everything will be burned to the ground. When this happens, and it will eventually, are those bureaucrats, politicians and companies involved in this looming fiasco going to be prosecuted for the lives lost ?
