Here is LA Times article on latest (perhaps our own version of Obama Christmas futures to come?) Environmental nonsense.
 
There needs to be an award for stupidity of this level – this is real cause of US financial & economic problems. A liberal US court system running hand in hand with liberal NIMBY groups like Serria club & Earthjustice against US industry & its workers.

A startup mode in any plant is critical operation where units are not in chemical or thermal balance & pass thru critical zones (hence higher fires/accidents/ect)- no one takes 60-100 year old plant (due block on new ones by stupid NIMBY’s like these) thru this phase just escape emission caps & only idiots would think that way.

California is going to wonder why they run out of gas at pumps soon – not understanding link between reduced production but continued consumption. (Remember when they forced Shell refinery into shutting down then put restraining order to prevent it because of critical supply issues? – from the Nimby Christmas past)
 
Meanwhile environmental led actions like Kyoto makes it ok for China plants to puke out 10X emissions as US refineries. I guess that is NIMBY heaven?
