LNG Activists' New Playbook

According to the Malibu Surfside News, anti-LNG activists have declard "full fledged war" on LNG imports to California. Pacific Environment, an evironmental adocacy group based in Northern California, has put out a 40 page report that the Surfside News says will become the "little red book" for anyone opposing LNG projects in California.

Essentially the strategy calls for opponents to avoid getting caught up in individual battles over specific projects and, instead to fight all LNG imports by questioning the need for LNG in general, and the economic and envrionmental cost of the projects.

The president of Woodside, which has an LNG project in cue, called the report "one sided" and "extremist".
