A Guide to British Columbia's Liquefied Natural Gas Sector: LNG 101.
Take note, all the images are stock photos, must be, no government running on a restraint program would spend, waste, tax dollars to promote themselves, and workers with great big smiles. They are paid to smile.
Premier Christy Clark's latest message is that "our province is building a new industry .... which will put us among the global leaders".
It goes a long way to explain how the 2013 election platform of Today's BC Liberals mushrooming Ten Billion dollar debt in one year, suddenly ended up at $70 Billion Debt overall in 2014.
Not to muddy the waters too much here, but using their LNG 101 math ...... the BC Liberals work it out this way:
In one year Christy added $10 Billion of debt, therefore in 30 years we'll be sitting at $300 Billion of Debt, MINUS the $100 Billion in LNG Royalties.... which means we'll be burdened with an $200 Billion of DEBT. Do you feel better now?
Sigh, here's what Christy Clark thinks about tankers full, even just one, result in "spilt milk" like methane. No need to wipe it up, its not an Exxon Valdez situation, not a land version.
The Message from the Premier

LNG is odourless, non-toxic, non-corrosive and less dense than water. If a spill were to occur, the natural gas would warm and evaporate, leaving no substances behind.
Natural gas is primarily composed of methane gas. It can also contain small amounts of ethane, propane, butane and pentanes.

B.C. environment minister warned about LNG greenhouse gas emissions Internal briefing note singles out methane as concern, as well as emissions from fracking process.
Internal briefing notes prepared for Environment Minister Mary Polak since she took office last year and obtained by The Canadian Press, single out methane emissions for concern.
On top of emissions from combustion and flaring of natural gas, methane and carbon dioxide escape during hydraulic fracturing process, or fracking, the documents said.
"Methane emissions are a particular concern since they have a global warming impact 21 times higher than carbon dioxide," said one July briefing note.
"A small increase in the percentage of natural gas that escapes can have a significant impact on overall emissions."
