To The Eagle:
For years LNG energy speculators promised us, “If we import foreign LNG it will diversify the supply and stabilize natural gas prices.” Now they claim, “If we export our generous supplies of domestic natural gas in the form of LNG it will stabilize prices.” Thanks to Ted Sickenger (Oregonian, July 17) for exposing this ultimate bait and switch scheme.
If we allow these energy speculators to export away America’s energy future, you can kiss any form of economic recovery goodbye. In addition LNG terminals will destroy critical salmon habitat and use eminent domain to take people’s farmland, orchards and vineyards for pipelines. We urge the governor and the state agencies to deny the two LNG export terminals and associated pipelines.
