Comment
  • Hello, my name is Monserrat, I am a resident of Victorville, and I’m speaking on the CARB SCOPING PLAN.

  • I’m commenting because:

    • CARB needs to create more ambitious plans to stop the environmental injustices ongoing in our state and prevent the worst impacts of climate catastrophe

    • In our rapidly deteriorating climate, CARB wants to keep burning gas and even wants to build more gas plants.

    • Burning gas harms the lungs and health of my community

    • We need CARB to create the equitable road to zero emissions by 2035 in the electric sector for the health of both our people and our planet

    • “I live in Victorville, and the air quality affects me and my family because there are lots of sand storms that throw the air everywhere."

  • In the CARB Scoping Plan, I am asking the Board to: 

  1. Not include any new gas plants. Exclude any new investments in fossil fuel infrastructure and pursue renewable energy.

  2. Pursue direct emissions reductions rather than gambling on carbon capture and other unproven technologies.

  3. Reduce emissions from the transportation sector

 

Ensure the Scoping Plan  reaches zero emissions in the electric sector by 2035.
