Floating Gas Port

www.sunsentinel.com

Looks like Fort Lauderdale joined the bandwagon on opposing the floating gas port…

Next Tues. Mayor Minnet…in previous post….will offer a similar Resolution of opposition …to Gov. Crist….

The Florida Democratic Party is opposed….and made a similar opposition known to the Governor…

Strange for the Republican Mayors of both towns to be siding with the Democratic party….must be an election year….

This port has been in the works for quite some time…in fact a public meeting was held in Fort Lauderdale at a hotel…at least 6-8 months ago…and it was published in the newspapers… for all to attend…

again, elections must have played a role…only to the benefit of the project ….at that time …with politicians and their campaigns being preoccupied with other political concerns on the voters minds…

The Coast Guard made it clear in preliminary evaluations …it would not impose a danger to the coast…and representatives from Suez…said we would not see it from our beaches….that it would not harm anything environmentally…

This is not the only pipeline project….

a Google will show recent pipeline projects….going back to 2005… coming to Florida’s southeast coast….

the difference…not in my back yard…..NIMBY….

Another eventuality could be oil rigs….platformed in the ocean off the coast .. in years to come…as will be done off the coast of Cuba who signed contracts with the Chinese …

A solution …after further investigation….and a final report from the Coast Guard and Environmental Protection Agency…is moving the port further towards Port Everglades away from populated towns…. nearer to the state park…

A win-win situation …. for the politicians and the voters…. producing a plethora of “feel good” votes in November… as a result….for both political parties looking like they have saved us all… from this perceived inferno…..

BCbythesea …opinion….it will not be terminated….either it will be moved…or put on hold… until a later date… AFTER….the Presidential elections….
