The Malibu LNG Saga.

Last night the Malibu City Council reiterated its opposition to a proposed LNG project off the coast of Oxnard. Last week we noted that residents of the tony coastal enclave have been trying to play the environmental card against the project since their efforts to question its safety were soundly rejected.

Malibu is now laying it on pretty thick in the environmental fear-mongering department, tying its LNG discussion last night to a promotion for an upcoming fundraiser/screening of the Al Gore documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" to be hosted by actor Pierece Brosnan.

Don't expect resolution any time soon. The Malibu millionaires have lots of time on their hands and lots of money to spend and they are skilled at playing the environmental NIMBY card to preserve their lifestyle. Last year, the cause du jour was preventing public beach access near their homes, this year it's all about LNG.
