Pop Corner

Liquefied-natural-gas facilities are just a little bit outside People's usual fare of fashion faux pas and baby bumps—but not when celebrities get involved. Model Cindy Crawford and actors Halle Berry, Pierce Brosnan, and Daryl Hannah drew the magazine's attention in October when they attended a rally to oppose a planned LNG terminal off the coast of Malibu. In addition to marring the multimillion-dollar view, the fuel port would be a source of smog and greenhouse-gas emissions, making the idea a double bummer for the sexy surf town. No wonder a similar project proposed for Long Beach Harbor is now losing steam.

5/21/07 UPDATE: Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the Malibu proposal last Friday; earlier this year, local officials abandoned plans for the Long Beach terminal due to safety concerns.
