TheÂ California Coastal Protection NetworkÂ (CCPN) tells us that “the largest mining company in the world wants to build a Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal off the coast of Malibu.” Fourteen miles off the coast, to be exact.Â According to the CCPN, LNG is a highly flammable gas; the proposed terminal is three football fields long and 14 stories high.This facility is called Cabrillo Port, and itÂ is making a lot of enemies.Â One of those enemies is Pierce Brosnan.
In order to kick-off the campaign against this LNG facility, an outdoor screening of An Inconvenient Truth will be shown. Pierce Brosnan will give an introduction to this film, hoping to bring home the connection of global warming and the proposed project.
The event is tomorrow,Â Friday, September 15, 2006 in Bluffs Park in Malibu. The main event and screening is free and begins at 7pm. A pre-reception will be held at the Michael Landon Center at 6:30pm with a $250 minimum recommended donation.
It’s tough to mess with Malibu. Other “resident celebrities” that have signed on in support of CCPN include Barbra Streisand and James Brolin; Roma Downey and Mark Burnett; Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson; Eloise and John Paul DeJoria; Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito; Lyndie Benson and Kenny G; Tom Hanks; Jane Seymour and James Keach; Malgosia and Stacy Keach; Kelly and Ron Meyer; Janet and Martin Sheen; Trudie Styler and Sting; Michelle and Dick Van Dyke, and Suzanne and Hans Zimmer.
