Greens Thwart Gasoline Production
By Steven Milloy, Fox News
June 12, 2008

(Excerpt)

Four-plus-dollar gasoline is forcing Americans to realize that we need increased domestic oil production to meet our ever-growing demand for affordable fuel. But even if the greens lose the political battle over drilling offshore and in places like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, they nevertheless are way ahead of the game as they implement a back-up plan to make sure that not a drop of that oil ever eases our gasoline crunch.

The Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council, or NRDC, successfully pressured the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to block ConocoPhillips’ expansion of its Roxana, Ill., gasoline refinery, which processes heavy crude oil from Canada, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

The project would have expanded the volume of Canadian crude processed from 60,000 barrels per day to more than 500,000 barrels a day by 2015. After the Illinois EPA had approved the expansion, the green groups petitioned the federal EPA to block it, alleging ConocoPhillips wasn’t using the best available technology for reducing emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides.

Apparently, the plant’s planned 95 percent reduction in sulfur dioxide emissions and 25 percent reduction in nitrogen oxides wasn’t green enough...

-snip-

Meanwhile, in California, green groups are working through the state attorney general’s office to block the upgrade of the Chevron refinery in the city of Richmond. The $800 million upgrade essentially would expand the useable oil supply by permitting the refinery to process lower-quality, less-expensive crude oil.

California Attorney General, ex-Gov. and climate crusader Jerry Brown claims the upgrade will produce an additional 900,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year. But Chevron says the upgrade actually will reduce the emissions by 220,000 tons.

Whose figure is closer to the truth?

It’s hard to know for sure at this point, but it’s worth noting that material false statements made by Chevron are prosecutable under the federal securities laws and California state law, while Brown and the activists pretty much can say whatever they want without legal accountability...

We need to put a bounty on these tree hugging filth.:|err:|err:|err:)st

John do you truely believe that a revolution couldn't happen? It wasn't all that long ago that Russia went through their civil war while transforming from communist to democracy and free enterprise. What do you think would happen if over the next 10 or so years our government pushed socialism and started taking over major industries? I don't know which group of people would fight harder. Those who are fighting for something they never had. Or those fighting for something that's being taken away. I do know one thing and that is history will repeat itself when people forget about history or ignorantly believe that there is no way it could happen again.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..................

"refinery has been a labeled a "green refinery". Just based on this I don't think there will be any arguments from either side.
".

and: "How about not enough of an argument to stop it. "
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........................




Wrong yet again.

There has now been a 100% reduction in emmissions from the aforementioned refinery expansion.
Much better for the planet.

MMGCOOLING, here we come.
