MORE ON THE “FLOATING” LNG CALYPSO/ SUEZ GAS PORT

Ever look at the Fort Lauderdale City News?………www.citynewsfl.com

Usually found in LBTS at the the condos….

2 page spread in their May issue….unfortunately not online as of yet…(the May issue popping up…not the same…do not know why?…..)

pg. 3 shows some new facts….not seen before…

The size…of the ship…”mammoth” …they report…15 stories high…the size of 3 football fields…

The paper…joins with the Galt….most Fort Lauderdale/ LBTS residents….. and the Futures paper…in their opposition….offering dire …catastrophic predictions….

The paper…..adds this…..accusing Calypso/ Suez of lying …on the “economic impact”….bringing an “abundance of natural gas” to South Florida…..

BCbythesea…..this is where this writer strays in previous support of this project…. as previously posted….

Not in fear of a “cloud” of vapor….coming over our coastal towns like something seen in the “Incredible Hulk”….or other comic book movies….

The concern….the change of support…..the fear of not getting the gas delivered as promised….

In previous post…it was reported LNG was “diverted” from the U.S. for a higher profit from other countries….

Now this….

Last May 30, 2008… the New York Times ran a story analyzing the gas market….and found several LNG ports recently built in the U.S. are sitting idle….Droughts in Spain and Australia brought increased demand in those countries….China and India…will pay more for the product…thus further lending credence to the previous report…

That story …on page 4…reprinted with permission from the N.Y. Times….

online subscribers…….’Global Demand Squeezing Natural Gas Supply’…by Clifford Krauss...www.nytimes.com

BCbythesea….also cause for concern….FPL…no mention of LNG gas port at the Climate Change Summit…plenty of talk of solar/wind…..but no LNG…why?………..

BCbythesea….hears….many LBTS residents are perplexed by the 2 full page ads for the Calypso/Suez LNG Gas Port…. found in the BTSTimes over the last month…

Could it be that those who thought this was the “people’s” paper…are stunned that it appears ad revenue won out over their base?….

BCbythesea…hears Comm. Dodd is doing some further research ….. he believes Calypso is not telling us the whole truth…as he stated from the dais….when they appeared before the commission…..

Will BTSTimes…print his findings …in Commissioner Comments in a future edition?…..pun intended….before or after the full page ads have stopped running?

It’s Bender Time…..Fun with mathematics and politics…. www.flsentry.com

more to come…..
