Not a groundless worry

The prospect of shipping of liquid natural gas (hypercompressed) on the Delaware River worries not just the Homeland Security types, but a lot of other folks...
Experts have said that an explosion or terrorist attack on an LNG ship could unleash a pool of fire on the river with heat so intense, it would blister the skin of people a mile away.
Tricky (economic and regulatory) decisions likely to be involved, but I hope that decision-makers keep this image in mind.
