Dear California Air Resources Board,

As a native Californian, I understand firsthand how much our state has changed over the 30+ years I've lived here. As a City employee, I know how much we must mobilize to prevent the worst effects of climate change, while also mitigating its current and inevitable impacts. As a public health student, I am acutely aware of how wildfire smoke results in increased heart attacks and strokes; how our most vulnerable have perished in the heat, sometimes in the street; and how the health and livelihoods of whole communities rely on adequate snow pack and river levels. Most importantly, as a human being, I believe that we deserve clean air and future beyond oil and gas. We deserve clean transportation options that work for all of our communities.

I am calling on you to include the following as priorities in the 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan:

1. 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. 

2. Accelerate and scale up investments in clean vehicles and mass transit for working class Californians.

3. Eliminate reliance on climate policy dead ends like Carbon Capture and Storage on polluting fuel sources.

We are relying on you all to pave the way towards a resilient, equitable future. California can and should be a leader in this - we can't afford any other option.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
