    Sierra Club CA Opposes Any New Onshore And Offshore Coastal LNG Infrastructure in CA

    (March 17, 2004) -- Sierra Club California now has the following policy position on CA Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities:

    "Sierra Club California opposes any new onshore and offshore coastal liquefied natural gas infrastructure in California. Instead we support energy conservation and clean environmentally renewable energy."

    Sierra Club CA's Sacramento office says the resolution passed on a 37-5 vote (with one abstention) by the group's Regional Conservation Committee, a statewide committee of volunteers that makes decisions on Sierra Club CA positions on various issues.

    The action came at the committee's March 14 meeting in San Luis Obispo...which was attended by LB environmental advocate Dr. Gordon LaBedz, a member of Sierra Club California's 11-member Executive Committee.

    In an email to, Dr. LaBedz said "the arguments against a new LNG infrastructure are quite simple:

  • 1. We don't need it. Americans are 5% of the world's population and we use 25% of the world's energy. We need to conserve and stop wasting. We need renewable energy.
  • 2. It hurts what's left of our destroyed coastline. Terminals are proposed in natural areas away from people. There are hardly any areas of the coast left. We don't want anymore industrialization of our coast.
  • 3. They are dangerous. The tankers, the pipes, the LNG tanks, the propane and butane tanks, the diesel trucks...
  • 4. LNG comes mainly from third world dictatorships. No more foreign fossil fuel dependence on unstable regimes.
  • 5. Gas drilling rapes the wild places of other countries.
  • 6. Fossil fuels cause global warming. Conservation and solar do not."
  • Dr. LaBedz added that area activist Bruce Monroe, chair of the State Coast and Ocean Committee, also attended the meeting and urged support of the resolution.

    Sierra Club CA's action comes as separate firms have proposed LNG facilities onshore in the Port of Long Beach and in Eureka on Humboldt bay...and offshore near Port Hueneme in the Oxnard area.
