Comment 147 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||Consider CA's Impacts to the Amazon|
I am a
resident of the South Bay, Sunnyvale CA. I work for the City of
Palo Alto in Environmental Services and am currently attending San
Jose State to attain a B.S. in environmental studies. I am writting
to express concern for the fact that California consumes nearly 50%
of all oil exports from the Amazon globally. I do not want our
state to be complicit in driving new oil drilling in the Amazon.
The California Air Resources Board needs to regulate
refineries’ crude sources and volumes to ensure that they are
not sourcing crude oil from regions where there are human rights
violations and ensure that they will not source crude from areas of
new drilling in the Amazon.
Any 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.
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 Indiginous rights violations or from regions where new
oil drilling in the Amazon is being planned.
not 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.
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 equivilant to
Amazon oil import totals.
