Comment 133 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectTime to wean off fossil fuels.

There is No good reason to destroy more of the fragile ecosystem by allowing more of precious rainforest to be used for fossil fuel mining, farming, agriculture, etc. We need to protect our environment instead of destroying it as there is No Planet B and preserving the Earth's ecosystem is preserving our future. I have done my part in purchasing a hybrid SUV and my next vehicle will be a fully rechargeable electric SUV, time for others, including California to do their part!

  1. Rein in rogue refineries. Commit California to a policy/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.
  2. Don't punt your climate impacts to communities in the Amazon. Present a plan for California to reduce and/or eliminate its consumption of crude from the Amazon.
  3. Commit California to new fuel efficiency standards and expanded electrification of fleets that consume the most Amazon oil. Expansion of EVs broadly, and public transportation goals to reduce domestic consumption equivalent to Amazon oil import totals.
