In what may be the first in a series of dangerous concessions the U.S. has given to the EU in order to withdraw its commitments at the WTO for recreational online gambling is about to happen.
Suez Energy North America Inc, a subsidiary of a Parisian company that financed the Suez Canal, is proposing new natural gas terminals located eight and ten miles off the shore of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. That plan includes utilizing super tankers that will deliver liquefied natural gas to the terminals where it will be converted to gas and be delivered to massive pipelines directly into Port Everglades where it will tie into existing state gas pipelines.
The platforms will be deep-water ports supported by buoys, turrets, anchors and pipes, where it will be delivered to South Florida Power plants.
The result, aside from the obvious possible hazards of explosions, hurricane damage, and a variety of environmental problems, will also cut off approximately 2.9 miles of deep-water fishing surrounding the sites.
