Judge upholds California’s low-carbon fuel standards 21.6.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
A federal judge has upheld most of California’s pioneering low-carbon fuel standard but allowed oil companies and other fuel suppliers to challenge rules that may favor California ethanol producers over their Midwest competitors. The standard, part of a 2006 state law intended to reduce air pollution that causes global warming, requires suppliers of transportation fuel sold in California to achieve a 10 percent reduction by 2020 in the amount of carbon released from their products. Ruling in lawsuits originally filed in 2009 by oil refiners and ethanol producers, U.S. District Judge Lawrence O’Neill of Fresno rejected their broadest arguments: that the California rules conflicted with milder federal clean-air laws and were an unconstitutional attempt to shield the state’s energy producers from competition.

Bloomberg View: How Trump can build toward a climate policy 19.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
President Donald Trump’s idea of putting solar panels on a border wall with Mexico, and using the revenue from the energy it generates to finance its construction, is as far-fetched as it is half-baked. Yet a more realistic environmental agenda — one that allows Trump and his Republican allies in Congress to remain true to conservative principles — is not hard to imagine. Since Trump announced his decision on the Paris agreement, more than 1,000 cities, states and businesses have declared their ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
