Yeah ... and what they are bringing down the Taunton River is 600 times more concentrated -- to be stored in a tank that is 300 feet. Oy.

My Dad discovered Google Earth. Now he can show by satellite just how close he will be to the center of the blast. They are actually considering selling and moving before it gets in. They really think that if the LNG gets there, the property values are shot.

They are really right.

But I don't think it's even close to a done deal. But I sympathize. What business is going to want to locate near the waterfront once this comes in? The specter of it is already hovering.
