Clean water advocate Pierce Brosnan and other celebrity residents gathered at Surfrider Beach on Sunday to protest a natural gas facility proposed 14 miles off the Malibu coast.
The crowd included Halle Berry, Cindy Crawford, Jane Seymour, Dick Van Dyke and Tea Leoni.
There are currently five terminals proposed for California, with three along the Southern California coastline.
One of the world's largest energy companies, Australian-based BHP Billiton, wants to build the Cabrillo Port Liquefied Natural Gas facility off the coast of Malibu and Oxnard.
Opponents say the terminals fail to meet clean air requirements and would be terrorist targets.
A decision is expected some time next year.source
