SubjectDraft 2002 Climate Change Scoping Plan

We cannot wait until 2045 to achieve carbon neutrality. We have to incrementally work to get faster goals starting now. Let's target near zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2035 by:

1) Phasing out fossil fuel production in California by 2030.

2) Requiring 100% EV sales of cars, transit buses, drayage trucks, cargo handling equipment by 2030. Scale up clean public transit. Insure drayage trucks that have reached their life term are taken off the road.

3) Creating no new gas-fired power plants are built starting now. Transition to 100% clean, renewable electricity by 2030.

4) Ending sale of new gas appliances by 2025.

5) Excluding false solutions like biofuels, hydrogen and carbon capture and sequestration.

6) Ensuring equity and environmental justice during the transition.

Thank you for your consideration.
