California's adoption of the first-ever regulation to reduce the carbon content of fuels is likely to set the template for similar efforts by Washington, Oregon and the federal government, and provides a good look at the issues that arise. The California Air Resources Board voted 9-1 on April 23 to adopt rules intended to reduce the carbon intensity of fuels 10 percent by 2020. The regulation does not set the specific lower carbon fuels to be used, but sets a framework that uses market mechanisms to spur introduction of fuels that would achieve the targeted reduction in carbon intensity.
