Irony isn’t dead. But even it has to sit down and self-medicate when the Portland Cement Association rolls out it annual “Environment and Energy Awards.” This year’s winners include the CEMEX Louisville Kentucky plant (27,000 pounds of toxic releases in 2010) for its substitution of a a pug screw for the more traditional pug mill, Titan’s Troutville, Virginia plant (13,882 pounds of toxic releases in 2010) for it’s excellent cub scout tours and self-interested quarry expansion PR campaign, and Holcim’s Theodore, Alabama plant (1, 037 pounds of toxic releases in 2010) for burning tires and plastics.  We are not making this up.
