SubjectNo to Oil Expansion in the Amazon Rain Forest
Comment

1.) California is responsible for 50% of the global consumption of Amazon oil

2.) California has also declared a climate change emergency.

3.) The Amazon rain forest serves as the lungs of the planet and protecting the rain forest is essential in our fight against climate change.

California cannot respond to climate change while also being responsible for the destruction of the Amazon rain forests.

My daughter is 8 years old and I worry about her future. I beg CARB to ensure that all climate change plans going forward should restrict fossil fuel expansion – domestically and globally. CARB can require refineries to put Indigenous rights screens in place and mechanisms to ensure that oil will not be sourced from new drilling in the Amazon.
