Comment 149 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

Subject2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan

This plan does not serve the best interests of the majority of Californians. As written, it imposes more controls and costs on all Californians, especially those who can least afford it, and it needs to be revised prior to moving forward.

Specifically, this proposed plan would cost an estimated $18 billion in 2035 and $27 billion in 2045 and would eliminate at least 80,000 jobs. This change would not only bring higher energy costs as a result of imposing an all-electric energy grid, but would also deny citizens’ ability to choose the energy and transportation options that are best for them, their businesses, and their family.

While battling increasing threats of wildfire, draught, and excessive heat in California is a priority, there are alternative options that must be considered. For example, eliminating geo-engineered weather manipulation, enforcing Cal-Fire to effectively perform forest management, and stop incentivizing Cal-fire to not contain fires as expeditiously as possible. Further advancing clean gas options such as hydrogen, natural gas, and propane should be top priority. Looking at the data, levels of CO2 in the atmosphere have not actually increased since 1976. It is literally impossible for CO2 to enter the atmosphere from car exhaust.

What is being done to provide environmentally friendly methods for disposal of lithium batteries needed to run electric cars? Are we simply eliminating one detriment for another? All of these questions must be addressed prior to tackling the elimination of fossil fueled energy sources. Climate change is not caused by fossil fuel emissions but rather by geo-engineering.

Thank you.
