Nature of this article[edit]

When I created this article my intention was to aim for a worldwide view, so this will be the "mother" article from which articles on the specific standards of each country or region can branch out, such as the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation already does. Therefore, the aim is to have a summary of all such initiatives or program in implementation here. Eventually, a new article on California Low-Carbon Fuel Standard might be created. As this is still a developing story, for time being I will expand on a couple of issues (UC Berkeley and UC Davies studies & a bit on the public comments received before CARB approved the standard), and keep it updated as it evolves. However, if someone wants to significantly expand about the Cal LCFS, for example on the controversial decision of leaving US corn out of California, I suggest to do that in the new article, which can be created using the info presented here.--Mariordo (talk) 13:23, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

  • California Low-Carbon Rules Halted by Ryan Tracy and Jim Carlton 30.December.2011; excerpt ...

    In a victory for refiners and ethanol producers, a federal judge halted enforcement of California's low-carbon fuel rules Thursday, saying they discriminated against crude oil and ethanol imported into the state. The decision puts on hold a major portion of California's effort to cut greenhouse-gas emissions, at a time when the most-populous state's stance has taken on extra importance nationwide because of a stalemate in Washington over greenhouse-gas legislation. The ruling means that refiners and ethanol producers won't have to buy credits when importing oil and ethanol into California, as the regulations would have required in certain cases.
