    A Must Read

    Virginia Thorndike has written a considered, clear, concise and informative analysis of the Liquefied Natural Gas issue. Although there is plenty of information out there, Thorndike¿s is the only unbiased account. In addition, the writing is elegant and alive. A must read for any citizen interested in the choices of energy sources, and especially those who live anywhere near the coast throughout the USA

    Interesting insight!

    Interesting insights into the people and entities that make the decisions and form energy policy in the LNG world. Virginia worked hard on this book and asked tough, honest and thoughtful questions. She always appeared to be objective during our many interviews - and when I got to read it - she proved to be not only objective but also a good read! After being in the environmental consulting business for more than 30 years and involved with LNG since 1994... I hate to admit it, but I learned a lot! ¿Rob Wyatt
