Nothing Scheduled



Art Berman, petroleum industry expert —

“The folly of the U.S. model for LNG exports is that the world is holding its breath. Well, guess what? The world has changed.”

“If these guys want to spend all this money to export LNG, let them hang themselves. We (the United States) get it wrong every time and it just seems like we're on track to do it again.” [Bold emphasis added.]

LNG — it's both 'if' and 'when', The World, Coos Bay, OR, 2015 Jan 30.

Gordon Wilson, former British Columbia Liberal leader and NDP cabinet minister

"The most compelling reason to be concerned about relying on this golden goose [LNG exporting] is the fact that the markets we are told will buy all we can supply may not materialize as we think, and even if they do, the price they are prepared to pay for our product may be well below what is anticipated." (quoted from 2013 Apr) [Bold emphasis added.]

Rafe: Gordon Wilson finds religion on LNG…for $12,500 a month,
The Common Sense Canadianl, 2013 Nov 4.

US Senator Angus King (ME-I); former Governor of Maine —

"Serving on this committee will give me the opportunity to fight for Maine’s energy future, work hard to protect its beautiful and abundant natural resources, and encourage a cleaner, more deliberate national energy policy."

King appointed to Senate energy oversight panel, Portland Press Herald, 2014 Dec 12.
