The deadline to speak out against Cabrillo Port has been extended to Oct. 23. That's the enormous Liquified Natural Gas platform an Australian mining company wants to build just outside the Channel Islands Marine Preserve. Check the EPA web page for more info. You can write or e-mail. Deadline is Oct. 23.

Cabrillo Port consists of a floating storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) connected to two new parallel subsea pipelines. The FSRU is a ship-shaped, double-sided, doublebottom facility that will be permanently moored at the bow. The equipment on the FSRU will include eight submerged combustion vaporizers (SCVs), four engines for electric power generation (three primary engines and one backup), three spherical LNG storage tanks, one diesel fuel storage tank, an emergency generator engine, and three emergency firewater pump engines.

Even the EPA boilerplate sounds toxic.
