Comment 385 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectCARB scoping plan

I call on CARB to act aggressively in winding-down of fossil fuels in California to address the growing climate crisis -- specifically, to adopt a full, coordinated phase out of fossil fuels, with targets for oil refining by 2045, oil and gas extraction by 2035, and a clean electric grid by 2035.

I urge CARB to think broadly about other contributing factors to the climate crisis that fall within its scope. In March 2021, CARB recognized that its consumer product regulations aimed at reducing smog have directly resulted in the increased use of HFC-152a in aerosols. HFCs are potent greenhouse gasses. If California can lead the way in eliminating HFCs it will likely lead to a nationwide reduction equivalent to 5 megatons of CO2. I urge CARB to fix this oversight and bring regulation on aerosols in line with our overall climate goals, and give us the best possible chance of a liveable future.
