Documentary film, The Risks and Danger of LNG, highlights the hazards of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), by demonstrating its vulnerability to accidental disaster and terrorism. This important film was an Official Selection of the Malibu Film Festival, 2004, has received high praises from a nationally and internationally recognized specialist in anti-terrorism, and is now available for preview and purchase online at http://LngDanger.com.
Residential communities throughout America, Canada and Mexico are now being targeted by the energy industry for building dozens of large, vulnerable and dangerous Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities.
Film producers Tim Riley and Hayden Riley, consumer protection advocates from California, made the film to alert the public to the imminent perils of LNG. "We made the film to offset the energy industryÂs relentless LNG 'safety' spin. Our film provides vital information to the public about the actual risks and danger of LNG which are routinely minimized by the energy industry, its investors, political allies and internet blogging friends." said co-producer Tim Riley. "Our film exposes the vulnerability of LNG and reveals how massive its destruction can be." said co-producer Hayden Riley.
The movie highlights the City of OxnardÂs formal Environmental Impact Report of 1977, when an LNG facility tried locating in that coastal city.
"The Oxnard City Council, however," as documented and reported by the California Energy Commission, in July of 2003, "did its own study, which considered safety risks under worst-case scenarios. OxnardÂs citizens opposed the project after the CityÂs study showed up to 70,000 casualties from an LNG accident there. None of the risk assessments considered acts of sabotage."
"We are now at war with terrorism, so the likelihood of an LNG disaster would be even greater today," says Oxnard Mayor Manual Lopez appearing in the documentary.
Colonel David Gavigan, a nationally and internationally recognized specialist in anti-terrorism, has praised the filmmakers Tim and Hayden Riley and their LNG film. Gavigan is a graduate of the Army War College, the chairman of MassachusettsÂ Bristol County Homeland Security Task Force, a member of the U.S. Attorney's Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council (ATAC), Boston, MA, and is the military and terrorism analyst for FOX 25 TV, Boston.
"Let me start by congratulating you both on the outstanding DVD I just received entitled The Risks and Danger of LNG. This has to be an award winner. When I watched the film it gave me more insight into the dangers that communities face by the greed of large companies to site dangerous materials in populated areas. I feel that your work should set an example for others who wish to protect the public. The detail in your film of the dangers of LNG should leave no doubt in anyone's mind that we are facing a crisis when an LNG facility is sited in populated areas. It should be mandatory for every first responder to view this film," said Colonel Gavigan.
"We are honored that our film was recognized by the Malibu Film Festival; and the meaningful praises by anti-terrorist expert Colonel Gavigan, provide additional validation of our film and efforts," said co-writer Hayden Riley.
"The LNG industry and their friends don't like our film, and they don't want people to see it. Our documentary provides information they prefer you didn't know, and that is one of the prime reasons people need to see our film." says Tim Riley, who also co-wrote the film.
