Proposed Regulations Threaten Fertilizer Industry Jobs

by Kathy Mathers

January 30, 2014 Discussed (983)

Energy, In the Field

Though the Obama Administration claims to be doing all that it can to fix unemployment and get Americans back to work, its regulatory agenda actually threatens to do the opposite. During Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, President Obama made it clear that in the absence of Congressional action, he was ready to assert executive privilege on contentious issues such as climate change. In the case of the fertilizer industry, such action would be a job killer.

Nitrogen fertilizer manufacturers rely upon natural gas to provide the energy needed to capture nitrogen from the air in a complex process. The cost of this natural gas accounts for between 70 and 90 percent of the cost of producing ammonia, the basic building block for all nitrogen fertilizers.

Recent history tells us that high natural gas prices threaten U.S. nitrogen production.  Between 1999 and 2007, more than 40 percent of all nitrogen production capacity in the U.S. was lost because of high natural gas prices.  Now with the shale gas revolution, we have seen a renaissance in the industry unseen in the last 40 years – several production plants have come back on line and nearly 30 new plants have been announced.  But proposed EPA regulations threaten this positive economic activity.

Each new nitrogen fertilizer plant will create approximately 1,500 construction jobs and 150 permanent jobs. The impact of these jobs would compound the $58 billion that flows into the economy as a result of the fertilizer industry’s employment of 25,000 U.S. workers. With an average annual salary of more than $75,000, these fertilizer production jobs are often the best jobs in their communities.

Fertilizer manufacturers want to continue to produce necessary nutrients for farmers and contribute to the economy by providing quality jobs. EPA activity could place that at risk by implementing policy changes that pick winners and losers. If the fertilizer industry no longer has a steady and reliably priced source of natural gas, American workers will be the biggest losers.

Find the best way to locate clothes for plus size
women at. So I paid a little more and I think I got Something of very
high quality in my Palisades Longboard. The ego loves to crow
when we uncover a past life of fame and fortune.

Pick clothes that fit, update them every once in a while.
Not a bad achievement for a girl who had been born part of a family of six
children to a poverty stricken French family. In addition to wearing the most luxurious garments available (such as silk and velvet), bishops would also wear a special hat called a "miter. It's actually a simple solution to what has been portrayed as a very difficult problem.

After all, there has to be some advantage of being small chested.

Everyone is different so that means each bridesmaid will have
different ideas about what the perfect dress looks like.

You may even be interested in halter party dresses or
strapless dresses. The striking asymmetry of this one shoulder dresses made
them unique. A sheer fabric covers the shoulders, and also adds
a special element from what otherwise could have been an ordinary strapless neckline.

It is important to note that loose bras or those of bigger size tend to fall off at the oddest of
moments, leading to embarrassment. Naturally, if you happen to wear your hair down over your shoulders, you'll be
covering the one shoulder detail that makes the gown special to begin with.

The widest selection of boots for dogs I've found is on Amazon. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen, is one of the highest-paid new mothers of 2010.
Her luscious mouth turned this woman into a Hollywood goddess, but look closely
at her lashes because she completes her glamorous look with a generous attachment of feather dusters.

But, thanks to websites like we too can adorn our feet with superb stilettos and other
sexy shoes at affordable price. In the tropical rain forests
and Pacific coastal regions of Colombia,
African-descent, black communities often prepare an unembalmed body to lie in state at home for several days, even in the intense heat and humidity of the
tropics. The Jewish religion is dominant, yet it embodies several sects, adding to the cultivation of custom and tradition.
Originally the Dirndl, which is the female form of the traditional German costume, was the dress worn by
maids and servants; the word dirn in local Bavarian and Austrian dialects meaning 'maid'.
Use another tissue layer to cover the sleeves, fold the jacket
into thirds and place into the bag. That's a really strange funeral custom all right ' no 'bones' about it.
In addition, nuns wore belts to support their gowns and tunics.
