The LNG danger

There is not a hint of doubt that LNG steaming into Boston Harbor on a Yemeni tanker might very well pose a terrorist danger.

Yemen is presently the terrorist capital of the world – with no real government and Al Quaeda training camps in abundance.

The case has been made by City Manager Jay Ash and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino – that allowing these deliveries to continue unfettered is to invite trouble.

They are right.

In the world we live in today, we don’t have the luxury of being wrong only once.

Once would be enough and probably forever.

    In every corner of the country, the US Coast Guard seems unable to say no to these kinds of activities. I guess they worry it would make them seem weak or unprepared. The sad part in this case is that all the taxpayer costs, all the foreign-energy dependence, all the undeniable risk is simply so one French-owned company can continue to make money using their obsolete facility. With the recent domestic natural gas discoveries, there is no need to import any LNG to this country.
