Broadwater Abandons L.I. Sound Plan

Proposal to build a liquid natural gas terminal off the shore of Wading River was abandoned on March 7, according to 'Newsday' report.

According to a Newsday article, plans for a liquid natural gas terminal slated nine miles off the Wading River shore, between Long Island and Connecticut, were abandoned on Wednesday by Broadwater Energy.

The report states that a March 7 letter from a Broadwater attorney reads, "Broadwater has not commenced construction of the pipeline or the LNG facility to which it was intended to connect ... Moreover, Broadwater has determined not to go forward with any aspect of the LNG project. Accordingly, it respectfully requests that the commission vacate the certificates issued."

Assemblyman Dan Losquadro, R-Shoreham, offered the following upon hearing the news: "When this project was first proposed I was very pro-active in voicing a strong opinion against it. I want to thank all the residents who made their opposition to this plan known. Together we built a powerful case against this project and it is very satisfying to know that our voices were heard.”

The enviros hated this but love offshore windmills (bird blenders). Why do they like clams and fish but hate birds?
