California greenies doing their best to force companies to leave the state

A California judge, at the behest of environmental groups, has ordered Chevron to stop a large project underway to upgrade a 107 year old refinery which would have increased the amount of gasoline it can produce from a barrel of crude oil by 7%.

The judge ordered that a new environmental impact statement be prepared, and a new permit be obtained from the city. About a thousand jobs will be lost until the project is eventually re-started, if ever.

Not wanting to take responsibility for the economic hardship they've created, the greenies think the company should just keep these workers on the payroll with nothing to do.

Will the last industrial operation in California please turn out the lights when it leaves?
