    Mitsubishi Cement Corp. expanding Long Beach operations

    Mitsubishi Cement Corp. expanding Long Beach operations

    With the economy improving, demand for cement is on the rise.

    In order to meet new demand for the construction material, companies are increasingly turning to imports in the wake of environmental regulations that make it expensive to produce in Southern California.

    Biggs said California cement producers’ abilities to meet expected increases in demand for raw materials are constrained by a state law that created a cap-and-trade program designed to limit greenhouse gas emissions resulting from industrial processes that include cement production or refining. Essentially, the law imposes an emissions “cap” on firms that can “trade” for credits that must be paid for in order to produce emissions that exceed the state’s allowances.

    The California Air Resources Board has said the law is intended to create a financial incentive for firms to seek cleaner technologies.

    Biggs, however, said it has effectively made it too expensive for cement companies to build new production facilities.


    As usual, "good" intensions give way to economic reality, and more good paying jobs are lost.

    Should Progressives be forced to explain, or is job loss and government dependence a worthwhile objective to be applauded?

    Do you remember what Southern California's air looked like in the 1970's and 80's? Were you around then? Thanks to "Liberals" our air quality has improved substantially. Imagine what our air would be like if Liberals hadn't passed strong environmental laws in California. Industry is good but not at the expense of the environment.

    LOL

    Was I around? I've been breathing SoCal air since the mid-50's, so yes, I was around. And it wasn't just liberals who passed air quality legislation. So let's not attempt to re-write history.

    AB32 has little to do with this strawman you've thrown out. But thanks for the comment.

    Using California as a example of the successes of Liberal policies pegs the irony meter.

    It leads the Nation in debt and unfunded liabilities, has the Highest poverty rates in the Nation, is home to 1/3 of the Nation's Welfare recipients even though it only has 1/8 of the Nation's citizen's and is driving out Millions of its tax paying citizens and hundreds of its Businesses to Red States like Texas.

    Energy prices are higher and so is the cost of living.

    In " Progressive " cities like San Francisco and Berkeley only the rich can afford to own property and businesses and crime rates are disproportionately divided between white and minorities.

    In San Francisco blacks are charged for 40 percent of the Cities murders.

    Let's not forget how Progressives in California have also rewarded the invasion of millions of illegal aliens, who are encouraged to steal jobs from minority US citizens desperate for jobs. Having been sufficiently enslaved by their liberal/progressive masters, they are now being sent to the back of the bus where Progressives want them, so new targets can be captured for political gain.

    As pointless and fact free as ever.

    Actually the right wing thinks "freedom" includes having a well paying job, as opposed to waiting for the next government handout.

    I do, I grew up there in the 60's-70's, the brown smog that hung over LA was ever present.

    If only the automobile pollution controls were in place before the '60's and '70's:

    Why Did a 1542 Spanish Voyage Refer to San Pedro Bay as the 'Bay of the Smoke'? | LA as Subject | SoCal Focus | KCET

    A blanket of haze hung over the land that would become Los Angeles on October 8, 1542, when Spanish sailors entered San Pedro (or perhaps Santa Monica) Bay and made the first written observations of the Southland. This early air pollution so impressed the sailors and their captain, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, that they named the area "Baya de los Fumos, or "Bay of the Smokes."

    That is mostly because of a reduction in emissions from vehicles due in large part to advances in technology. Nice try though.
