Owners of one of Lodi’s largest employers are worried that state requirements geared toward reducing carbon emissions and global warming could put a financial strain on their business and eventually even lead to layoffs.

Pacific Coast Producers, which is based in Lodi, is concerned about having to participate in the cap-and-trade portion of the California Global Warming Solutions Act.

    California Air Resources Board is as corrupt and crooked as it gets.."Currently, thousands of independent truckers and tow-truck drivers are losing their businesses because of the baseless diesel regulations created by CARB. Even after the exposure of the CARB employee with fraudulent credentials, CARB forged ahead with the impossible diesel regulations.
    Hien T. Tran, who published the damning data finding that diesel emissions cause premature deaths, was the lead scientist who wrote the report, “Methodology for Estimating Premature Deaths Associated with Long-term Exposures to Fine Airborne Particulate Matter in California, on which the heavy duty truck and bus regulations are based. But, it was revealed that Tran had purchased a mail order Ph.D. from Thornhill University, which is apparently nothing more than a box in a UPS store in New York City.
    CARB’s director, Mary Nichols, knew of the fraud before voting on the controversial regulation.
    And it was reported that other board members knew about Tran’s phony credentials, but withheld the information from other board members for nearly a year after the highly controversial vote. The attorney general at the time, current Gov. Jerry Brown, was also notified, and chose not to take action.
    CARB promoted Tran, and gave him a $1,006.00 a month raise.

    I am glad that the business world is finally realizing what we have been sounding the alarm about for over 2 years. The California Air Resources Board is a rogue agency that has 1223 employees and a budget of over 555 million dollars. They have also registered parts of the Cap and Trade program through Delaware, so it will not be subject to California open meeting laws. The voters had a chance to suspend AB32 until such time that the unemployment in Ca was under 5.5 % with Prop 23 in 2010, but they were fooled by the false allegations that the Yes on Prop 23 was totally funded by "Big Oil" However the NO side was funded by a solar hedge fund investor that was heavily invested in solar panels- that were going to be produced in China! Of course, Prop 23 went down in flames. Voters fooled again. How did they vote on AB32? ALL no votes were Republican, and ONE Democrat voted against it. All yes votes were Democrat.
