In recent months many residents and politicians have demanded that the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility be shut down. What most don’t seem to understand is the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility has been in operation since 1939. I can’t imagine the fact of this facility being in the neighborhood wasn’t disclosed to the buyers when their homes were purchased as is required by law. Our daughter recently purchased a home near the beach adjacent to a military installation It was disclosed in the documents submitted to her noted that the harbor seals barked and the military facility played revelry in the morning and taps in the evening. I feel that if these residents are so worried about natural gas being in their neighborhood the natural gas be shut off to their homes and depend on electricity that is generated by natural gas. The NIMBY attitude of these homeowners is a disgrace to the energy needs of our community. Now politicians are flexing their political aspirations to satisfy these wealthy homeowners in Porter Ranch. Are they willing to allow a nuclear power plant to be installed near their homes? I’m not sure where they expect electricity to be generated to operate their air conditioners and swimming pool pumps? Solar? Windmills? Keep in mind that solar works when the sun is out unless have expensive batteries that have inherent dangers of their own. Windmills only work when the wind is blowing. Just how much fossil fuels are required to fabricate these windmills that must withstand the wild required for them to operate? If these residents don’t want this natural gas facility near their homes then they should move. Having worked on experimental energy programs my entire career, the most efficient form of power generation is nuclear. Good luck getting permits for that.
