Low Carbon Fuel Standard

You may have heard of California's recent move to a "Low Carbon Fuel Standard".

If you want to find out a bit about the effects this may have on the state, check out this post from the California High Speed Rail Blog.

While this is a perspective from the mass/public transit side of the debate, I think it still has a lot of merit. We saw a big increase in public transit use here in California after the last rise in the price of gasoline. This move by the government of California seems to be a focused and concerted effort to help reduce our dependence on oil.

I do hope mass/public transit becomes more popular here in California, and especially in Fresno. If this LCFS is the answer then so be it.
