Court Upholds California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard

California is one step closer to its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. Today a panel of federal judges upheld California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard, whose backers say reduces pollution, protects public health, and provides economic benefits. The law was contested by fuel makers claiming that it violates the U.S. Constitution, but today the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals said otherwise. Alex Kekauoha reports.
