Subjectoppose fossil fuel expansion domestically and globally

As a lifelong California resident, I urge CARB to make sure that any climate change plans going forward should restrict fossil fuel expansion – both domestically and globally.

We need to commit California to a policy and regulatory agenda that ensures that California refineries are not sourcing crude from regions where there are Indigenous rights violations or from regions where new oil drilling in the Amazon is being planned.

I am shocked that California consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the Amazon globally (nearly 1 in 9 gallons pumped in-state on average).

As extraction communities in California and Indigenous communities both face ongoing oil spills and pollution, it’s important that the state doesn’t rely on increasing domestic production in order to reduce its use of Amazon crude. We need a just and sustainable future that doesn’t involve fossil fuel expansion at home or in the Amazon.

I call for stronger policies to end U.S. and California's complicity in new oil drilling in the Amazon once and for all.  We must commit to new fuel efficiency standards and expanded electrification of fleets.

Thank you for taking my comments into consideration.
