The Dangers of Shipping LNG May 26, 2022

Shipping liquified natural gas (LNG) by train and truck through heavily populated areas is terribly dangerous. In the case of an accident, hundreds or even thousands of people could be killed or severely burned by the resulting explosion and fireball. This is the message PSR delivered as we participated in a press conference with our friends at Food & Water Watch, calling for an end to this practice in south Florida. For more details, see our earlier comments to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration on this same topic.
