Green Car Congress has posted a detailed overview of the Senate’s Energy Bill wrangling from yesterday. The LNG proposal is also crucial, particularly in the South. The Mississippi chapter of the Sierra Club has posted information regarding the dangers of these terminals, and Mississippi’s Republican Governor Haley Barbour and Louisiana’s Democratic Governor Kathleen Blanco are both concerned about the environmental impact of offshore LNG terminals. (Thanks to Dad for the heads-up on that). Again returning to my reading of Kunstler, this may all be a moot point anyway — gas production has been on the decline for decades.
