Dueling Editorials On LNG Terminal Siting

The Los Angeles Times has an anti-LNG editorial in today's edition. Actually, I should say that it comes out against the Port of Long Beach LNG terminal, and in favor of a terminal fourteen miles offshore of Oxnard, in Ventura County. Meanwhile, the Ventura County Star comes out against an ill-discussed plan it considers the child of "a company's ability to woo the governor." (Schwarzenegger last week said in passing that he prefers the Oxnard site based on public safety considerations. This caused something of a firestorm in Ventura County, needless to say.) Will NIMBYism turn out California's lights?
