A California state judge in San Francisco has rejected a challenge to California’s carbon offsets program, ruling that regulators have the authority to include the mechanism in the cap-and-trade program for greenhouse gases.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Ernest Goldsmith ruled Friday that the state Air Resources Board was authorized to use offset protocols under the guidelines set by AB 32.
