When Ronald Reagan was president, this was the number one foreign policy issue between Canada and the U.S.  The damage which was being done to wild life, forests, buildings, and human health was immeasurable.
The LNG project is a formula for acid rain. 
I do not doubt Port Isabel and SPI will organize against LNG and any politician supporting the project.  Carlos Masso really needs to think about this if he intends to become the next DA.  As a port commissioner he is clearly on the wrong side of this issue.
We are not going to win this issue based on one or two groups opposing it.  We need to educate every group which will be impacted.
I ask that my readers click here to begin to learn what acid rain will mean to our area.
Acid rain breaks down old buildings and statues.  Brownsville spends a small fortune refurbishing its old buildings.  The old mortar will not hold up to acid rain.  Brownsville Historical Society needs to get educated on this issue and join the battle against LNG.
Acid rain kills crops.  These pictures are all real.
We are not going to win this battle with a handful of posts on the blogs.  Many different groups need to come together to protect their interests.  Now is the time to get educated.  We need to let the Port Commissioners know there will be consequences to each and every elected official if LNG comes to our port.

jobs - the companies see as in need of jobs so they come to our area thinking people will just think jobs without thinking about the negative.

Jobs are important - but not if they are going to hurt the community and in fact other industry

from article in San Antonio Current:

"Liquefying natural gas is a dirty and unsightly enterprise. In Brownsville, the proposed LNG facilities would dump millions of gallons of heated effluent each day into one of the healthiest shallow-water bays in the world. The plants’ 500-foot flaring towers—which release mercury, hydrogen sulfide, helium, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons and other impurities from the natural gas—would burn a couple of miles downwind from the state’s most popular beach...."
