lng-photo.gifEveryone from Tom Hanks to Daryl Hannah to Charlize Theron to Cher are joining forces to help prevent the installation of a new BHP Billiton Liquid Gas Terminal off the coast of Malibu, California. BHP Billiton, the largest mining company in the world, intends to build a massive floating LNG terminal just 14 miles off our coast. Once built, the terminal will be the length of three football fields, 14 stories high and will receive, store and process LNG, a highly flammable substance, from huge LNG tankers that arrive at least two to three times a week from various foreign countries.

Today’s newsmaker, Pierce Brosnan, is helping to lead the charge in preventing BHP from setting up shop near the homes of the stars. From his site,

” In addition to posing grave threats to our safety, there are other problems with this project. This floating LNG terminal will emit more than 200 tons of smog-producing pollutants per year, in an area long known for high occurrences of asthma in both children and adults. Additionally, it is estimated that the project as a whole will emit 25,000,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually, further contributing to global warming. The proposed LNG terminal will also be tremendously harmful to the ocean’s ecosystem and marine life. The negative impacts from this project on our air, our water and our environment are potentially devastating.”
