2. LNG:

Gas flare draws thousands of birds to their deaths, and ignites questions

The conditions that night were a perfect storm -- foggy, low cloud cover, an early fall evening that was right for flight. How many birds flew past the flare on a recent September night at the Canaport LNG plant, north of Maine in New Brunswick, Canada, isn't known. But managers at the liquefied natural gas import facility estimate that about 7,500 migrating birds, mostly small songbirds, were drawn into the flare and died from its heat.
