Comment 408 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectDraft Scoping Plan Update

I am writing today to emphatically urge you to strengthen and improve the Draft 2022 Scoping Plan Update.

The current Draft Scoping Plan fails to accelerate the targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 or to achieve carbon neutrality no earlier than 2045. It is simply not good enough to meet the urgency of the climate crisis and the desperate need for bold actions. 

CARB must improve the Draft Scoping Plan by vastly accelerating a phase-out of oil and gas extraction and oil refining; not making any more investment in fossil fuel infrastructure; eliminating or significantly reducing our reliance on unproven and costly technologies to prolong polluting fuel sources; pursuing more robust transportation sector targets; and decarbonizing buildings. The escalating climate crisis demands that CARB adopts a more ambitious Scoping Plan.

Thank you for your concern in these important matters, on behalf of the California public.
