Comment 435 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectAccelerating the CARB Scoping Plan

The severity of the climate crisis and its impacts in our state call for a more agressive climate action plan. The scoping plan currently calls for investment into 10 GW of more natural gas energy, but in a world where that action would only make climate change worse, I urge you to revise the plan so the addition of fossil fuels is not part of the solution. In addition, I think it's a little ambitious for us to assume we can have 100 million tons of direct carbon capture by 2045, I think investment could be more suited for more proven technologies like tree planting or soil regeneration. I even saw that in the UK they have a plan to spread gravel on cropland so that when it rains, carbon from the air turns into carbonate somehow Im not a biochemist but given the vast agricultural land we have this would be a much more simple alternative to direct capture. 

I just really think that the plan needs to be accelerated and revised, without fossil fuels and entirely made up of processes and plans that are abmitious, but still feasible.
