Baltimore County Officials Oppose LNG Terminal

Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith held a news conference today announcing his opposition to the proposed AES Sparrows Point LNG terminal in Dundalk, Md., based on safety and environmental concerns.  Smith said it is “counter intuitive to believe that a major LNG facility at Sparrows Point, or anywhere near population centers, can be done without creating a new and significant threat to public and environmental safety.”  Also in attendance was City Council Chairman John Olszewski Sr.  The County Executive’s newsletter and the Baltimore Sun have the details.
