Well they missed a few days…..but they’re back….. with the 2nd installment….

Calypso/Suez…black and white ad in Sun-Sentinel….

page 21A… Friday…..6/13/08

Rising above the grayish -black water….

CLEAN…………….ENERGY…………(previous ad….SAFE……..ENERGY)

(no color …..bad move……black water?….the detractors to the project can find all sorts of symbolism in it….)

Below…a light bulb being held…………(no more happy Mother and child)

grayish black sky…………..no sun….(again…detractors are gonna have a field day…..)

The text…running along the side….

The proposed Calypso Deepwater Port (DWP), is a safe environmentally- friendly project that will provide a much- needed new supply of natural gas for South Florida. Using ships and proven under-water buoy and anchoring system,the port would be located approximately 8 to 10 miles offshore of Broward County northeast of Port Everglades, far from the shoreline and practically unseen.

Here are a few of the most important facts you need to know:

(this ad keeps the liquid gas drops…..)

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel available on the market

Natural gas is the cleanest burning of all the fossil fuels and will help our community produce less harmful greenhouse gases.

Coal and oil are declining

Governor Crist has mandated that we look towards alternative, cleaner sources of energy. While renewable options are developed, natural gas can help maintain our energy needs.

Rising energy prices are everyone’s problem

Florida continues to grow and need more energy. Demand for clean natural gas will grow by 40% over the next 10 years. By diversifying our natural gas supply beyond our sole Gulf Coast sources, we can help prevent price increases and shortages, as seen in the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons.

BCbythesea….previous posts….for the project….in my back yard….it has a window …to be productive while the solar/ nuclear is 15- 30 years off…..

the ad answers this…but the lack of color….big blunder…..
